First Details for Michael Hurst’s Glimmer


A tale of witchcraft

Shock caught wind of a new film in development with Michael Hurst at the helm.

Hurst has Re-Kill on the way through After Dark Originals. He previously directed House of the Dead 2, Room 6 and Pumpkinhead: Blood Feud. He’s now attached to Glimmer and we’ve got the official synopsis below:

When 16 year old Annie Tuttle takes a walk at her lake front home she spots a young girl standing on the ice covered lake. As Lucy falls through the ice, Annie hurries to rescue her. She sees a figure at the center of the lake and the figure seems to shimmer and disappear before her eyes.

Nine years later Annie is happily married to Jack Cole. Annie gets a letter which reads: “It’s going to kill you. Come alone”. The letter leads her to the Granger Institute and Lucy Talbot – the girl from the lake. Lucy explains that the GLIMMER will never let her live.

Outside, Annie meets up with Gabe, the local deputy and a former boyfriend. In Lucy’s room, Annie and Gabe discover two pictures and a page torn from a book dating back to 1698 in them, the figure of Eldridge Peck appears a man executed for being a witch.

Meanwhile, Annie has discovered a link between the Peck family and her husband Jack.

Annie must race against time to save herself and her unborn child from the GLIMMER.

Intandem is handling the sales of this title. They’re also behind David Ellis’ Humpty Dumpty…if that film ever comes to fruition.
