The Northleach Horror

Here it is. As it’s completed its festival life, we’re making THE NORTHLEACH HORROR available to all.

Alex Livingstone and I wrote this WWII-science-fiction-horror-espionage comedy. David Jack and Plum Films produced it. I directed it. It seemed to go well! The image above, admittedly, was filmed during the most uncomfortable conditions any of the crew had ever experienced. Edinburgh in January is cold. But if you go up into the hills, it gets much, much worse.

Thanks to all who helped on this movie, a great team, and especially our great cast: Freddie Fox, Steven McNicoll, Gavin Mitchell, Raechel Alexandra, Niall Greig Fulton and Nic Crum. All an absolute joy to do silly things with.

I want to be able to say something like “Whitsuntide will return in MADNESS IN THE QUEEN’S HEAD,” but who knows what the future holds? I found some fingers on the floor and I’m crossing them.

Appreciative comments and constructive criticisms are ALWAYS welcome.
