You've heard of crowdfunding to raise money to make a film, right? Well the makers of The Addicted went a slightly different route and used the collective artistic skills of movie fans to design their film poster. The Addicted’s official poster is designed by Adam James Woodward from the Empire Magazine website. His winning poster was picked by the film’s production as the best entry from multiple fantastic reader posters designed by Empire readers for the film’s release. This is possibly the first time a feature film’s actual artwork has been designed successfully from a competition.
About the film:
In 1987, David is a resident at ‘The Manor’ Drug Rehab Unit. Whilst there he is being kept addicted to heroin by a Clinical Director Chris Hunter whilst he has an affair with David’s wife. Chris eventually poisons David with contaminated heroin leaving him with horrendous facial disfigurement and chronic pain. David soon hangs himself.
25 years later and we follow Chris’s daughter Nicole as she tries to break into TV journalism. Her boyfriend (Adam) suggests they spend a night filming with friends in the now derelict Drug Rehab unit. There have been recent reports of paranormal goings-on and they plan to try and film them. It soon becomes clear however that they are very much not alone…
The film will feature a bespoke full orchestral score written and recorded by BAFTA and IFTA nominated composer, Jonathan Atkinson.
