Ginger Nuts of Horror
Scottish filmmaker Lawrie Brewster returns with The Unkindness Of Ravens. Many of you will have been lucky enough to have seen Lawrie's previous feature film The Lord of Tears, an excellent low budget horror film. Based on on the Kickstarter alone for his new film I am deeply excited by what I have seen. The Unkindness of Ravens is shaping up to be a fantastic horror film. I'm so excited I am going to be backing this film, and I highly recommend that you consider doing the same, I think this is going to be one of the highlights of next year.
In the bleak highlands of Scotland, an army veteran must battle his demons in a last desperate bid to reclaim his life and his sanity.
The Unkindness of Ravens is an exciting, original, feature-length horror film that blends the psychological with the supernatural in a nightmarish tale of one man's journey into hell.
The Unkindness of Ravens tells the story of Andrew, a homeless veteran plagued by flashbacks of a traumatic event he witnessed in the army. Andrew travels to a retreat in the remote Scottish Highlands hoping to overcome his fear of ravens, the dark creatures that populate his visions. But, in this bleak wilderness, his nightmares manifest into an enemy more powerful than he could ever have imagined. Our script was written by the amazing Sarah Daly in 2012.
Inspired by the Valkyries of Norse mythology as well as the Celtic Morrigan, these evil raven-headed beasts stalk the earth, seeking suitable victims. They hunt in a flock or 'unkindness' and their ultimate prize is the juicy white eyeballs of their chosen victim. These incredible creatures were designed by Gavin Robertson and Lawrie Brewster in 2012 with help from the public The Unkindness of Ravens Artist Group (2012) Copyright Hex Media ltd.
