From the talented Irish filmmaker I spoke with on episode 26 of the show—Jason Figgis—comes another promising feature. Burial at Thornhill is a psychological horror feature set to be released in 2013, and Mr. Figgis has been kind enough to send over the first poster, a set of stills, and the trailer.
Jason Figgis directed and produced the film; Bernadette Manton wrote it; Jason Shalloe co-produced; Director of Photography was Laura McGann; 2nd Unit Director of Photography was Taine King; Sound/1st Assistant Camera was handled by Andrew Lynch; Production Designer was Catherine Wrigglesworth; and make-up was done by Sinead Murphy.
I’m excited about this, as his feature Railway Children is phenomenal. The following is the official synopsis, as well as all the good stuff you’ll want to take a look at. Thank you to Jason Figgis and October Eleven Pictures!
John (Bryan Murray – Holby City, Casualty, Brookside) and Jane (Cora Fenton – Strength and Honour) are a happily married couple living in Dublin’s sprawling suburbia – until the afternoon their daughter is abducted and murdered. While John quiets his grief in daily routine; Jane has no such recourse to normality and so sinks ever further into torturous insanity. In Jane’s mind, someone needs to pay and pay they will. Peter (Bill Fellows – The Tournament, United, Romans 12:20) is a North of England Architect living in Dublin while overseeing a six month contract. He is soon about to take centre stage in Jane’s terrible fantasies of Vengeance and where Vengeance is concerned; in the mind of the insane…there are no boundaries.
