Last week, we wrapped principal photography on our new movie, The House on The Witchpit. I’d love to show you images or a trailer. I’d love to talk about the plot. I’m not going to, however. We won’t be releasing a synopsis, images, cast list or clips. We have no plans to list details on the IMDB. The only visual that we plan to release at this point is the teaser poster that you’ve already seen.
Our current plan is to show the completed movie to 36 people this year, and then never screen that version to anyone ever again.
We’ll then screen a different version at the 2016 Horror-on-Sea festival. Once the film has screened at the festival, that version will also be scrapped and not screened again.
We’re not planning to release any version on DVD, Blu-ray or VOD. No DVD copies will be sent to critics, no password-protected Vimeo links sent out. Any festival wishing to programme the movie will have to take a leap of faith. The only people to watch any version of this movie for the foreseeable future will do so in a room with me in it.
The cast and crew who worked throughout the main shoot have not been provided with the entirety of the script or story, although when watching a test grading of one day’s rushes our lead actress commented “I’m not sure I’m going to be able to watch this movie”.
We made this film to tell a great story and to scare the living shit out of those few who watch it.
My name is Pat Higgins and my conscience is clear.
