Scottish indie filmmaker Lawrie Brewster (The Lord of Tears), known for his affinity with the strange and the macabre, has been working on upcoming film The Unkindness of Ravens that seeks to explore the effect of war on the human mind.
Scottish method actor Jamie Scott Gordon stars as homeless veteran Andrew, and went to extreme lengths, throwing himself into a 'mental abyss' in order to play such a disturbed and challenging role.
If the new trailer is anything to go by, this movie is going to be a dark and intense gorefest. Check it out:
Written by Sarah Daly, The Unkindness of Ravens tells the story of how army veteran Andrew travels to a retreat in the remote and desolate Scottish Highlands hoping to overcome his fear of ravens. In this bleak wilderness, his nightmares manifest into an enemy more powerful than he could ever have imagined.
Director Lawrie Brewster says:
“It’s sort of Apocalypse Now meets Evil Dead. It’s gritty, it’s weird and it’s deeply disturbing. We’re a small team passionate about telling original horror stories independently.”
The director has taken to Kickstarter to raise the funds to complete the project:
"We’re hoping to get some finishing funds to complete the soundtrack for the film, produce DVDs and launch a marketing and distribution campaign. All going well, the film should be complete and ready for release in the summer of 2016."
With 6 days left on the campaign and over 80% of their target reached, we're anxious that the team hit their goal of £40,000 so that The Unkindness Of Ravens reaches its full nightmarish potential.
