The Ferryman Poster


Director Elliot Maguire has just been in touch to tell us about his brand new independent horror movie, The Ferryman. He's not giving much away with the synopsis, which ominously and simply reads: After a failed suicide attempt, troubled and lonely teen Mara finds herself stalked by a malevolent entity.

In the director's own words, he tells us, "As much a psychological drama as a horror film, The Ferryman explores important themes such as depression and alienation in the modern world, while also delivering a truly terrifying cinematic experience. In the writing process I took inspiration from classics such as Let The Right One In and Candyman, to create that deep sense of evil, while creating characters that the audience actually care about”.

Sounds intriguing already, especially with those influences.

The Ferryman began production in March 2017, with a fantastic cast that includes Nicola Holt as Mara; Garth Maunders as Roland; Shobi Rae McLean as Julia; Azz Mohammed as The Detective; Pam Ashton as The Nurse; Frank Mathews as The Therapist and Philip Scott-Shurety as the mysterious Ferryman.

Shooting took place in and around Manchester throughout March and April, with the production taking inspiration from Sundance hit Tangerine and shooting on the iPhone 7, allowing a level of intimacy rarely seen in the horror genre and pushing this advancing technology to its limits.

Below you can find the first official stills from the movie, as well as the new teaser trailer.
