There is a dark, atmospheric, horror looming in this new image from Hungerford. The film is a found footage, sci fi feature that premiered at Sci-Fi London in May 2014. It is the directorial debut of 19 year old Drew Casson and the first live action project from Wildseed Studios. Hungerford stars Casson along with Tom Scarlett, Sam Carter, Georgia Bradley and Kitty Speed.

Synopsis: Cowen Rosewell lives with a small group of old friends in a scruffy flat in a small English town. Like many teens leaving school in 2014, there are few prospects or opportunities for people like Cowen and so he has enrolled in a BTEC media course as a way of passing the time. His first assignment is to record everything in a week of his life.

At first Cowen dismisses the random acts of violence he witnesses as business as usual in a small English town. However, when one of his best friends is savagely attacked by a stranger, and while defending her, they kill her assailant and the inexplicably serious nature of the dead assailant’s injuries alert them to a more disturbing reality. As events escalate, Cowen and his friends discover that the town has come under a mysterious malign influence which is somehow controlling organised gangs who are rounding people up and taking them to a nearby factory. The friends hide, hoping to escape, but their sanctuary is discovered and over run. Finally Cowen must make his way alone to the factory in search of his loved ones. The evil force that awaits him there has implications not just for Cowen, but for the entire world.
