Written by Guy Benoit (Atomic Brain Invasion), produced by Ted Marr (Disco Exorcist) and directed by Richard Griffin (Nun of That), Exhumed is a unique horror chiller in the style of films like The Others, Ills, The Orphanage and even the superb House of the Devil. It will rely heavily on atmosphere and nerve jangling chills rather than blood and guts, and being filmed in black and white will only help make it even more unsettling. The film has finished production and is likely to be released later this year. Here is the synopsis followed by the recent images:
Exhumed deals with a twisted family that is seemingly unable to leave their own home. Their gnarled existence and mounting animosity finally give way to violence and visceral panic. Exhumed’s closest living relatives would perhaps be The House of the Devil, Ils, and The Strangers. The recently deceased would include the weirdo Hammer efforts of the late 60s and early 70s: The Devil Rides Out, Vampire Circus, etc. Exhumed shares with these movies a claustrophobic fear of what lies inside both the home and the head. Sick stuff.
