We reported the other day on an upcoming supernatural feature called THE GHOST OF SLAUGHTERFORD, but the news break omitted one very important name: screenwriter Axelle Carolyn, who will also star in the movie. A former Fango scribe who has since appeared in a number of features and short films (including DOOMSDAY and CENTURION for GHOST executive producer Neil Marshall, as well as THE DESCENT: PART 2), Carolyn dropped us a line to give us a bit of background about the project.
Carolyn will play novelist Audrey Barker, who is grieving the loss of her husband when she travels to the remote town of Slaughterford to seek inspiration for her latest book. When she moves into the abandoned Rolph Manor, she encounters the ghost of Victor Rolph, who committed suicide in the old place. Instead of threatening Audrey, however, Victor’s spirit becomes her ally when it turns out that Slaughterford’s residents have satanic secrets. “We’re hoping to close the financing soon,” adds the writer/actress, who also penned the genre study IT LIVES AGAIN! HORROR FILMS IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM, “and shoot this spring in the UK.” Ian D. Fleming, who has numerous TV, feature and short-film and 2nd-unit directing credits, will helm THE GHOST OF SLAUGHTERFORD, which is co-produced with London’s Intandem Films, which also has worldwide distribution rights.
