“The film is a lot larger in scale. It’s far more violent, and I also think a lot more disturbing. But I think it stays true to the traditions of psychological
horror at the same time. I’m really excited for everyone to see it and show what we have achieved with a much higher budget since the last film. Hopefully people will find it really exciting!” James Crow
The film is now in post-production with Pete Coleman returning once again to create a new musical score after rave reviews of his soundtrack on Curse of the Witching Tree.
Details are still largely under wraps, but an international release is due next year with more details to follow soon.
