The trailer for John Geddes’ Hellmouth made its debut via Twitch this morning and I can honestly say I did not anticipate it having such an FX-heavy, ’50-inspired vibe.
A nod to classic horror and fantasy, the film stars Stephen McHattie (Pontypool, Haunter) as Charlie Baker, a dying grave keeper who’s forced to take one final job. Baker goes on a dark descent through gothic landscapes, demonic worlds and medieval realms as he journeys to discover the secret behind a mysterious cemetery.
The film also features Siobhan Murphy, Julian Richings, Boyd Banks and Mark Gibson.
Geddes previously helmed Exit Humanity and, here, he’s working with Pontypool and Septic Man scribe Tony Burgess.
Hellmouth is screening to buyers during the Toronto International Film Festival. We’ll keep you posted if it finds distribution!
