The highly anticipated debut film collaboration between Slaughtered Bird Films and Dragon Egg Media, Burn, will be hitting festivals near you very soon!
Directed by Judson Vaughan (creator of Pedro and the multi award-winning Soul Breaker), and written by Chris Barnes (editor of popular UK horror review site The Slaughtered Bird), Burn is both patient and unrelenting in its tension building, stunningly captured by Joaquim Barreto’s cinematography, and brings classic psychological horror to the forefront of independent British cinema once again.
After several local disappearances prompt a nationwide manhunt, Burn focuses on Peter and Louise – two (of many) people gripped by media-induced fear. When their son Charlie is born, the pair must find a way of raising him amid continuing public hysteria and incomprehensible personal tragedy.
Burn was created on a tight budget, funded completely independently by Chris and Judson, and is currently being submitted to festivals worldwide.
Starring Max Cavenham and Emma Kelly, Burn was filmed over 3 days in Hertfordshire and north London, UK
