The Velvet Onion has received a copy of the brand new teaser trailer for forthcoming short film The Monster.
We first told you about the film back in March, when the production was awarded funding by Film London.
A comedy horror about an iconic monster who falls in love with his leading lady on the set of a dubious film as he tries to resurrect his once-successful career, the film features Sightseers and The Casual Vacancy star Richard Glover alongside Call the Midwife‘s Helen George, and up and coming actors Simon Cotton and Matt Slack.
Written and directed by Forgery Club head honcho Bob Pipe and produced by Hen & Chickens guru James Wren, the film continues their longstanding association that has previously produced web series The Day They Came To Suck Out Our Brains and a little event called The Velvet Onion Live. Needless to say, we love ’em, and you can see the trailer exclusively below.
Furthering the TVO connections, Waen Shepherd continues building his impressive resume of scoring that has recently taken in the likes of The Ghoul and Murder in Successville.
Partially shot at Elstree Studios earlier this year, the film is a bold, dynamic short that marks the ever increasing talents of Bob Pipe as a director to be reckoned with. You’re going to love it.
We’ll bring you more information on screenings and release in due course. Until then, stay peeled.
