UK ghost horror Soulmate arrived on DVD this week, and the first trailer for the spooky looking feature has finally been released.
I like the setting for this film, and the films screams out classic old school horror with a simple enough set up, with some traditional scares. The lonely country house is the perfect place to deliver some creepy ghost shenanigans, so check out the trailer below.
Soulmate is written and directed by first time director Axelle Carolyn, and the films cast includes Anna Walton (Hellboy 2), Tom Wisdom (300), Nick Brimble (A Knight’s Tale), and Emma Cleasby (Dog Soldiers). Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) produced.
Recently widowed Audrey moves to the countryside in a bid to get her life back on track. When she realizes the cottage she’s renting is haunted, she decides to stay and strikes up an odd relationship with the ghost…
Audrey (played by Anna Walton, who also appeared in Carolyn’s short film The Halloween Kid) is a suicidal woman mourning the recent death of her husband. Isolating herself in an old country cottage away from friends and family, she soon develops a relationship with the ghost (Tom Wisdom) haunting the property. What follows is an atypical genre film in which love is not the ultimate cure-all.
