EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH POLLYANNA MCINTOSH ON WHITE SETTLERS
Not A Number Productions has finally revealed the first clips from its upcoming feature White Settlers. The horror film starring Pollyanna McIntosh (The Woman, The Exam) has, until now, been quite secretive yet still manages to draw quite a bit of worldwide attention.
Now the team behind White Settlers has released footage in the form of an interview with Pollyanna, as well as some clips that have been carefully selected to tease without revealing anything about the film itself.
Also starring Lee Williams, directed by Simeon Halligan and written by Ian Fenton, White Settlers is looking to be a great addition to the legacy of British Horror. I hold my breath in anticipation of a trailer.
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....
Director Simeon Halligan says: "Ian's screenplay is so gripping that, despite the incredibly tight budget constraints, we managed to assembled a crew of the industry's finest, which, amongst others, included Director of Photography, James Swift (POWDER, THE STREET) Camera assistant, Keith McNamara (GLADIATOR, CASINO ROYALE). Make up designer, Paul Boyce (HARRY POTTER, CLASH OF THE TITANS), Costume designer John Lindlar (SILENT WITNESS,PRIME SUSPECT), Production designer John Ellis (A BOY CALLED DAD, MISCHIEF NIGHT), Editor Ewa Lind (THE WARRIOR, L.A.WITHOUT A MAP ) all of which helped us to produce a movie that totally surpasses its budgetary limitations and looks amazing'.
Producer Rachel Richardson-Jones enthuses: "The combination Simeon's fantastic visual flair, Ian Fenton's nail biting screenplay alongside Pollyanna McIntosh and Lee Williams' incredible performances; makes for a brilliantly contained and claustrophobic chiller that grips to the very end".
WHITE SETTLERS sits comfortably in the thriller/suspense genre and is comparable to other successful tension filled movies like THE STRANGERS, EDEN LAKE and STRAW DOGS.
