Lord of Tears

Screen08 (Key Art 03)

As some of you are aware, there’s a new film that’s hitting this year – very indie and looking pretty wicked cool – called Lord of Tears.  They’ve just released their latest trailer and announced the beginning of pre-orders so I thought I’d give them shout out here (y’all know how I love my indie horror!  Damn the man, save the Empire!!).

Lord of Tears is a startling, psychological, supernatural thriller set against the ominous backdrop of a cursed highland estate. The film features the voice of David Schofield (Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean) Lexy Hulme and Euan Douglas.

​Lord of Tears tells the story of James Findlay, a school teacher plagued by recurring nightmares of a mysterious and unsettling entity.  Suspecting that his visions are linked to a dark incident in his past, James returns to his childhood home, a notorious mansion in the Scottish Highlands, where he uncovers the disturbing truth behind his dreams, and must fight to survive the brutal consequences of his curiosity…

I also had a quick chat with director Lawrie Brewster and he had this to say about Lord of Tears:

Lord of Tears is a British Chiller in the classic tradition of films such as The Wickerman, The Innocents and The Haunting. Our story concerns a man trapped in a crumbling mansion, stalked by Owl Headed monster in the misty highlands of Scotland, on a mission to piece together a childhood broken apart by repressed memory and dark secrets. It takes inspiration from classic mythology, ancient history and mordern legends such as those of – Slender Man!

The script is written by Sarah Daly (the music artist Metaphorest, and cousin of Kate Bush), stars David Schofield (of Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator) and is directed by myself whose (past collaborations with Sarah Daly) has included works with Joseph Gordon Levitt and Channing Tatum, that have featured at Sundance and SXSW.

*Yep, he totally had me at Joseph Gordon Levitt.  *sighs*  JGL is so brilliant.  And cute.  And gives off this aura of nice…and well, that’s enough of the JGL love.  Sorry, back on track.  ;)*

Anyway, give the trailer a looksie and if you feel so inclined check out the Lord of Tears Kickstarter page. Also available for your viewing pleasure?  The Lord of Tears Tumblr page, the Lord of Tears Facebook page, and their IMDB page (as someone who works in online marketing and social media, the fact that these guys have ALL the bases covered here gives me a major happy!!).  And check out some cool stills below!

  1. That looks awesome. I’ll RT your tweet about it.

    Ahhh, I love horror movies with those kinds of settings!

  2. that seems so scary.

  3. The trailer is good I like the setting and atmosphere as well as the use of lighting. I like indie films as well. Horror or otherwise as they are the only things coming out these days on this side of the Atlantic that are still creative as Hollywood has gotten too formula. The only negative that I can see at this point is that to me the Owl Man looks a little bit silly, but that is just my first impression and if I see the movie he may be scarier.

    • Yeah, the lighting is really great. Glad you’re a fan of indie films as well! They definitely need all the support they can get. 🙂 I can see how the Owl Man is a little silly, I’m hoping too that in the movie he’ll be scarier. Thanks for stopping by!

    • I think the owl man looks a lot better in the trailer. He does look silly in the stills, but a lot of costumed characters look pretty stupid in pictures and better in motion.

  4. When the Owl Man shows up, do his victims say, “WHOOO are you??”

  5. I love that poster!!!

  6. and – NICE WORK, Cinema Schminema!!!

  7. Hahaha xD That Antagonist OwlMan! Love it! I am in tears laughing 😀
    I’d watch this, and there for will 😀

  8. This looks really cool. I look forward to when this comes out.

  9. Definitely will be watching this…. I’m waiting for WWZ, too.

    Cheers !
