With his sexy thriller X
now rolling out in the US Australia's Jon Hewitt is casting his eye to the future. And what has captured the Acolytes
director's attention is a bloody experimental horror film titled Vampyr
Slated to star Belinda McClory (The Matrix
) Hewitt describes it as an extreme horror revolving around "a brutalized TV news anchor (McClory) who descends into homicidal madness" in a story that will turn the rape-revenge genre on its head.
Though the film has not yet begun production Hewitt has shot a brief promo to help sell the concept to potential investors in Cannes and it's immediately obvious that this will not be a typical vampire movie. We're proud to premiere that promo here and you can check it out below to see what I mean.
