This summer was a busy time for the Irish horror scene which the production of Beau Diable underway in Camden Fort Meagher, Crosshaven in the Cork area and also off the coast. The story revolves around a group of fun loving college students that go on a sailing trip little do they expect to be kidnapped, but when their captor forces them to take him to a remote island little does he expect to encounter the horrors there. Sounds interesting right? The movie take’s you into two kilometers of underground tunnels for an old fort… that sounds creepy enough without anything even being down there.

The film has been privately funded and is getting quite some attention from distributors as this may be Ireland’s version of ‘The Blair Witch Project’ or better!

Oh and did I mention the movie features a slew of amazing Irish talent? From Conor Dwane and Grace Kelly to Aron Hegarty and Niamh Hogan! Oh and by the way this horror movie isn’t without the beautiful girls either down worry! (some mentioned above)

The film is directed by Conor Slattery who also co-wrote it with the help of Gemma McCarthy. The production company for the movie is Centauri Films. The film is currently in post-production and is expected to release on limited screens including Camden late this year with the movie taking to the film festival scene early next year.

Filming will begin next month on a new independent horror film that is being shot mostly in Summerhill Wood as well as a number of other locations in Meath and Dublin.
‘The Devil’s Woods’ was written by Anthony White, who is originally from Dublin but has been living in Summerhill for the past six years. He will also direct the film.
The film stars Stephen Cromwell, who has previously featured in RTE hit series ‘Love/Hate’ and a short film ‘Tiger’ which is being shown at the Cannes Film Festival. The cast also includes Daniel Mahony who starred in ‘Coppers Uncovered’ a hugely successful play that has just completed a sell-out run in Dublin.
Much of this full feature film will be shot in Summerhill Woods, but other scenes will be filmed at the Hatchet Pub in Dunboyne, as well as various other locations in Meath and Dublin.
The plot is based on four friends who stop at a small town in the middle of rural Ireland on their way to a music festival.
Unknown to the girls, Jay and Keith have heard about the legends surrounding the town and some of its dark past. The girls decide to play a prank on Keith and Jay but things don’t go as expected.
Filming is due to begin in the second week of June and will take about three weeks and involve 30 people.
One of the biggest challenges is to raise the funds needed to make the film, and while those involved are volunteering their time for free, there are still costs such as hiring equipment, travel and food expenses to pay.
The film is on the funding platform ‘Indigogo’ and donations are welcome.
Once shooting is completed, editing will start and Mr White said he hopes to have the film finished by early next year in time for the film festival season.
The plan is to take it to film festivals and hopefully get a buyer and have the film released.

The movie recently got full funding (2,000euros) from their campaign on Indiegogo which will cover costs of food,travel and equipment expense’s as most of the crew involved are doing this movie on a volunteer status.

Looking forward to this one! Maybe we can even get an early view of it to tell you guys about how great it is..

Stay tuned for more!!
