Brit Horror ITS WALLS WERE BLOOD Adds Steve Oram, Edward Hogg, And More
Steve Oram (Sightseers), Edward Hogg (Anonymous), and Polly McIntosh (White Settlers) have all joined the cast, per Screen Daily. Oram (pictured) was exquisitely good in Sightseers, and McIntosh brings beauty, grace, and feral intensity to her roles, so, yes, this is good news for the anthology flick.
Individual segments will be directed by Sean Hogan (The Devil's Business), Paul Hyett (The Seasoning House), Tom Shankland (The Children) and Paul Davis (The Body). Of those filmmakers, I'm most familiar with Hogan, who has consistently plowed a fiercely independent, often uncomfortable path in his work, which includes the haunting Lie Still, and a nicely gruesome segment in Little Deaths, so I'm quite eager to see what he comes up with. Shankland turned out a bloody tense thriller as well.
The plan is to begin shooting later this year. We'll keep an eye out for more details as they emerge.
