Do you happen to love H.P. Lovecraft, Slender Man, The Wicker Man (the good one, not that godawful bee movie staring Nicolas Cage) and anything else that's all around creepy? If you said yes, which I assume everyone that reads my site did, then I've got a special treat for you today. I've just recently been made aware of a creepy and what looks to be beautifully shot film, titled Lord of Tears and I have the groovy atmospheric trailer and some more vital information for your consumption after the jump, so please, read on...
So, first up is the summary: The story concerns a man trapped in a crumbling mansion, stalked by an Owl Headed monster in the misty highlands of Scotland, on a mission to piece together a childhood broken apart by repressed memory and dark secrets. It takes inspiration from classic mythology, ancient history and modern legends such as those of - Slender Man!
Now that I've peaked your interest, time to check out the chill-inducing trailer, which shows the goods of what you can expect from this macabre tale.
Lord of Tears is written by Sarah Daly (the music artist Metaphorest, and cousin of Kate Bush), stars David Schofield (Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator), Euan Douglas and Lexy Hulme (Smash). Directed by Lawrie Brewster, whose past collaborations with Sarah Daly have included works with Joseph Gordon Levitt and Channing Tatum, that have been featured at Sundance and SXSW.
Lord of Tears certainly looks like it's going to deliver the goods, be it: hauntings, the weird and unusual, a breathtaking setting and a fairly creative and interesting design, by the way of Owl Man (something I would rather not ran into late at night in the Highlands of Scotland).
The film is complete and currently has a Kickstarter running, where they are taking pre-orders and trying to raise some money to help with the expensive task of getting the film out to a wider audience. If you're like me and after seeing the brooding and Gothic trailer, then you can surely agree that this is one film that deserves to get noticed. I'll definitely been keeping an eye out for Lord of Tears and once it becomes available, you can most certainly expect a review to pop up.
