Project info

The directorial debut from one of Britain’s leading makeup FX artists, 'The Seasoning House' gets its world premiere at Frightfest this August.

Shot by FujiFilm Shorts Award winning DoP Adam Etherington, this dark, tense horror tells the harrowing story of Angel, a deaf mute orphan, enslaved to care for kidnapped girls imprisoned and forced to work in a heinous Balken brothel.

Having sought out a way of moving between rooms, through the wall cavities and hollows of the seasoning house, Angel plots her way out of claustrophobic incarceration, to escape the evil clutches of her captors and exact revenge upon those responsible for the brutal slaughter of her family… A psychological thriller in the style of Hitchcock and Polanski - but with an ultra-modern twist.

The Seasoning House premieres at Frightfest on August 23rd
