From the Producers of Wolfcop comes Hellmington, a tight spiral into madness.
As winners of the CineCoup Film Accelerator program, Toronto directors Justin Hewitt-Drakulic and Alex Lee Williams were given $1-million dollars in funding, as well as promotional efforts and a release in Cineplex theatres. Check out the first look at the poster and trailer.
Hellmington follows detective Samantha Woodhouse (Nicola Correia-Damude), who returns to her home to Essex County for the first time since graduation to deal with the unexpected death of her father. His passing marks yet another tragedy in an already devastating year for Sam: her own daughter was murdered, resulting in a downward spiral of anguish and guilt. However, Sam soon discovers that her father is one in a series of suspicious deaths that have occurred over the last several years in her hometown, starting with the disappearance of fellow student Katie Owens. Battling her own personal demons, Sam seeks to uncover the disturbing truth of what is the real cause of their deaths. The film also starts Micheal Ironside, Munro Chambers, and Yannick Bisson.
Stay tuned for release details.
