Forthcoming independent comedy horror film The Trap is nearing the end of Post Production, and as such, we thought it was high time we introduced you to it.
The movie is made by FMW Films – a company set up by Alan Freestone, Fergus March & our very own James Wren. Their first feature film, Peacock Season, was filmed in 2009, and released two years later via GoFasterStripe.
With a top notch cast of friends and comic genius, the lo-fi release of Peacock Season sneaked under our radar, and that of many others too, which is all the more shocking when you see that cast list, which includes the likes of Justin Edwards, Paul Foot and Richard Glover as well as the likes of Nina Conti, Rhys Darby, Richard Herring, Reece Shearsmith and Isy Suttie to name but a few. If you’re curious, you can pick it up here!
Second film The Trap was filmed in late 2010 and early 2011, and is pitched as “The Goonies meets Saw”! It concerns two groups of people searching for ancient treasure buried deep within a massive, abandoned Victorian Bath House.
One group is made up of professional cat burglars on their last mission… the other are misfit unemployed youngsters on a team building exercise. Yet neither group is ready for the horrors they encounter…
In amongst the cast are James Wren, Richard Glover, Alex Kirk and Bob Pipe, as well as Pros From Dover star Sean Garratt. We can’t wait to see the results, but in the meantime, there’s a teaser trailer below, and we’ll be bringing you more news on the film’s release as soon as we can… so stay peeled! Until then, pop by the FMW website and the film’s official Facebook page.
