One of the creepiest and most haunting Horror films of recent memory, Lord of Tears, has just been accepted to screen at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. BIFFF is one of the biggest genre events on the planet and will pitch LoT against the best new Studio and Independent film offerings.
I for one predict that Lord of Tears will be a huge hit! Check out more news, video, and images after the jump.
Official Synopsis: Lord of Tears tells the story of James Findlay, a school teacher plagued by recurring nightmares of a mysterious and unsettling entity. Suspecting that his visions are linked to a dark incident in his past, James returns to his childhood home, a notorious mansion in the Scottish Highlands, where he uncovers the disturbing truth behind his dreams, and must fight to survive the brutal consequences of his curiosity.
Those of you who haven’t read my review of Lord of Tears yet can do so HERE.
The Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF) was created in 1983 as a venue for Horror, thriller, and science fiction films. It takes place in Brussels every year in March and honors both feature length and short films. It also hosts an international body-painting competition. Sounds like a blast! Past Grand Prize winners at BIFFF include Army of Darkness, Radioactive Dreams, and Dog Soldiers.
In advance of the fest, the folks at Hex Media are ramping up their promotion efforts on a variety of fronts. In addition to dropping a new trailer (which can be viewed HERE) they’ve also put together a hysterically clever video of The Owlman “stalking” unsuspecting chatters on Chat Roulette (which you can see over HERE). And anyone daring enough to get inside the head of Lord of Tears director Lawrie Brewster can check out his interview about Hex Media HERE.
Lawrie was also kind enough to send me an assortment of amazing Owlman images, which I am happy to share with you all below.
Being featured at BIFFF will certain give Lord of Tears the exposure it deserves. Don’t miss your chance to see the film before it blows up—and buy yourself a copy at www.lordoftears.com!
Congratulations to Lawrie Brewster, the folks at Hex Media, and all of the talented filmmakers who made Lord of Tears a success. Keep us informed of more good news!
