Doin’ It with Kwaisi France: Whose Behind The Suffering?
We sit down with Rob Hamilton and Marco Scola to find out what it takes to make a horror film.
Henry Dawles is at a cross roads in life. A diminished bank account and baby on the way with his estranged wife has his personal life in shambles. When Mr. Remiel, an elderly shut in, offers Henry a lucrative sum to appraise his rural estate, he accepts without hesitation.
What follows is a harrowing exploration of mind and madness. A journey through an estate as vast and beautiful as it is secretive and horrific. When Henry closes in on the lands’ dark truth, Remiel’s eccentric behavior takes a menacing and unforgettable turn.
In this twisted tale of morality and redemption, Henry must confront the terrors of his present while coming to terms with the horrors of his past.
