Reality Check: Home Invasions
September 18, 2012
— British Mavericks
Home Invasions: With unfortunately apposite timing, following the case of burglars being shot in a Leicestershire break-in at the start of this month, Alex Fitch interviews the directors of two new British horror films that deal with supernatural home invasions and their consequences. Oliver S. Milburn discusses his debut film The Harsh Light of Day which looks at a home owner’s Faustian deal with a vampire to get revenge on the thieves who broke into his home and murdered his wife, and Pat Holden talks about his new movie When the lights went out, starring Kate Ashfield (Shaun of the Dead) and produced by Bil Bungar (Moon), which dramatises the story of the 1966 haunting and subsequent exorcism of a semi-detached house in Pontefract. (Expanded podcast of an episode of I’m ready for my close-up, broadcast 19/09/12 on Resonance 104.4 FM)
When the lights went out was released in cinemas on 14th September and The Harsh Light of Day is released on DVD on 1st October.
