DISCOVERY SCREEN: WHITE SETTLERS

 

 

Simeon Halligan's north of the border survival horror White Settlers has been a regular fixture around these parts recently. We brought you an exclusive first look at a teaser interview with its star Pollyanna McIntosh and followed that up with a premiere of the poster art by HorrorTalk's own Ilan Sheady.

 

It was almost a given that the film would be accepted into Frightfest 2014, but as the festival is famed for its diverse choices then there's no such thing as a safe bet. It all worked out in the end though, and White Settlers will screen in Discovery 1 on Saturday 23rd August at 12.45pm

 

White Settlers director Simeon Halligan told us of the premiere, "It's really exciting to have White Settlers selected for Frightfest and it's also perfect timing as this world premiere screening will kick start the UK release, as we want to put it in as many cinemas as we can on the build up to the Scottish referendum on the 18th Sept". A brave move, perhaps, to link the film to potentailly one of the biggest political changes in many years, but Halligan is unfazed. "The film pits an English couple against a Scottish threat in the border country so it's very topical. We're urging viewers to vote on twitter after they have seen the film #whitesettlersscotlandwins vs #whitesettlersenglandwins, depending on what they think the outcome is in the film; and there will be prize winners!"

 

So festival-goers will not only be expected to tweet their post-screening reactions, they'll also be asked to vote in a referendum. Who exactly is going to play William Wallace in this war of Scottish independence? We'll just have to wait and see.

 

Synopsis:

 

Suspense thriller WHITE SETTLERS pitches the modern urbanite dream of starting a simple life in the country against the possibility of a very different and terrifying reality. Set in the borders of Scotland, WHITE SETTLERS takes place over the course of one incredibly tense night and stars Pollyanna McIntosh, internationally renowned for her performance in Sundance horror hit THE WOMAN, festival favourite LOVE ETERNAL and Irvine Welsh's FILTH.

It's Ed and Sarah's first night at their new home, an isolated farmhouse. This should be a new beginning away from their stressful London lives. And at first it is; come sunset they fall in love all over again as they wander in the beautiful Scottish landscape. But as darkness falls, Sarah suspects they're not alone, Ed goes to investigate and quickly, the evening becomes a nightmare. It suddenly dawns on them; they do not belong here. And they're certainly not welcome...
