John Connor [Celluloid 12.21.18] horror thriller



Brainstorm Media will release the Victorian supernatural thriller THE ISLE on February 8. Directed and co-written by British filmmaker Matthew Butler Hart, the film stars Conleth Hill (HBO’s Game of Thrones), Alex Hall (SUBURBICAN), Fisaya Akinade (THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS).

Based loosely on Scottish ghostly folklore with inspiration from Greek sirens, the tale is set in 1846 on a remote island off the west coast of Scotland, where three survivors from a mysterious sinking of their merchant ship find themselves stranded on a small misty isle.

The isle’s four sole secretive residents, an old harbor man, a farmer, his niece and a young mad woman, are anything but welcoming and reluctant to aid the sailors back to the mainland. The promise of a boat never materializes leading one of the sailors to question why people had abandoned the island. Through his investigation he discovers that every year around the same date a tragedy at sea would occur and young men from the island would perish.

When his two shipmates meet with fatal accidents, the myth of a ghostly siren haunting the island leads him to try and uncover the truth.
