The Ferryman began production in March 2017, with a fantastic cast that includes NICOLA HOLT as MARA; GARTH MAUNDERS as ROLAND; SHOBI RAE MCLEAN as JULIA; AZZ MOHAMMED as THE DETECTIVE; PAM ASHTON as THE NURSE; FRANK MATHEWS as THE THERAPIST and PHILIP SCOTT-SHURETY as the mysterious THE FERRYMAN.
After a failed suicide attempt, troubled and lonely teen MARA finds herself stalked by a malevolent entity.
As much a psychological drama as a horror film, The Ferryman explores important themes such as depression and alienation in the modern world, while also delivering a truly terrifying cinematic experience. In the writing process I took inspiration from classics such as Let The Right One In and Candyman, to create that deep sense of evil, while creating characters that the audience actually care about. – Elliot Maguire
Shooting took place in and around Manchester throughout March and April, with the production taking inspiration from Sundance hit “Tangerine” and shooting on the iPhone 7, allowing a level of intimacy rarely seen in the horror genre and pushing this advancing technology to its limits.
