Molly Crows is a new British horror film based around a young girl who can communicate with the spirit world, and those powers create a terrifying and deadly form of revenge after she is attacked by locals. The film is based on a true story about a 17th Century Witch, and is brought forward to modern times. With Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem due out this year as well, horrors involving Witches should be big business this year, and Molly Crows looks to be setting a good standard for those that will follow.
Written, produced and directed by Ray Wilkes, the film stars eight year old Mercy Gaiger in the title role, and judging by the trailer her acting abilities are way ahead of her time. Her performance in the trailer is chilling and frighteningly believable.
The film is currently in production and will be released late this year. UK based Flashgun Films are producing.
Based on actual events, Molly Crows tells the story of a small town in Middle-England being torn apart, because of a wicked act that took place there centuries ago. The film stars George Newton from “Dead Man’s Shoes” & the multi-award winning “This is England.”
The lead actor for Molly Crows is a eight year old girl who makes her debut in the film. She is supported by a cast of more than 70 actors, some of whom have appeared on TV series, feature films and theatre
Based on the true story of a 17th Century witch and set in modern times. A seven year old girl avenges a wicked act, and tears a small town apart.
When seven year old Jess and her alcoholic Mother arrive in Haslem, she’s an easy target for the brutal bullying culture. But there’s something different about Jess. She can see and hear things that other people can’t.
When Jess is brutalised in a country lane, the ancient spirits of the area appear, angry and full of vengeance.
The townspeople take the law into their own hands and commit a terrible act upon an innocent, as brutal and unforgivable as the notorious Witch-finders from centuries past.
