Glasgow-based psychological horror film set for festival circuit

Glasgow-based psychological horror film set for festival circuit

A new horror film set in Glasgow is set to be presented across the international film festival circuit.

Filmed on the streets of Govan and Ibrox as well as scenes in Athens, Greece, the psychological horror - Anna Unbound - follows the life of Greek girl Anna, played by first-time lead actress Vasso Georgiadou.

Leaving her troubled life in Greece to live with her newly-found love, Glaswegian partner Josh (Martin Sweeney), Anna soon finds that her troubles are not far behind - after a number of cruel attacks on her person took place at work.

With one colleague triggering flashbacks to her time in troubled Greece, the films sees Glasgow "act as a therapy" for Anna, as she gradually makes her way back into normal life.

German-born director Bernd Porr, who also directed Glasgow-based short-film NEDball spoke about the choice of genre and how it fits in with the Glasgow backdrop.

He said: "With budgets in film you have to work with what you can get, but for me I always intended to film this in Glasgow.

"What you often find is that with films in Glasgow, although they can be used for romantic comedies, are often quite gritty."

Mr Porr added: "I wanted to use that backdrop, with the interesting location of Govan and all its history, to get the most out of that gritty atmosphere for the horror.

"Having made the move from Germany to Glasgow, I know the emotions that can take place in a journey - so it wasn't solely on the horror, it also had that side of things."

EIGEN PRODUCTIONS

Having started as a short film three years ago for the Glasgow 48 Hour Film Project, the success led to the film being extended.

Taking two years to perfect the plot, the script was eventually complete by May last year with the main shoot of over 1500 takes beginning in September.

Mr Porr revealed he has to stick with his schedule of completing the film by June 1 to make the most out of this year's festival circuit.

"Once festivals are finished we will then release the video or put it 'On Demand', but festivals really are the main gateway to success," the director added.

"We've sent the film away to festivals, but it is always competitive. We have submitted a draft to the Edinburgh Festival which they are kindly considering.

"Next up would be the Fright Fest which is important because of our horror theme, I guess we really just have to keep our fingers crossed."
