Silent Studios and Jason Wright (Pit Stop, Torture) are back with Mannequin a film about models menaced in an abandoned factory. The synopsis and trailer made me think of Tourist Trap, which isn’t a bad thing at all. You can check out the press release, stills and trailer below. You can also check out the film’s Facebook, Instagram and Indiegogo pages for more information.
A group of six young models head off on a lucrative, well-paid modelling gig in the countryside. It seems too good to be true though! As they are driving along a bleak country road their car breaks down. With no phone signal and no houses in sight the girls split up and three of them leave to try and find help. Upon their return, they discover their friends are missing, except for a shoe and a trail of blood. Has something or someone taken them? Will they find their missing friends alive?
MANNEQUIN FEATURE FILM – PRESS RELEASE 2022
Director Jason Wright talks about the film Mannequin as one of his most eerie films to date. Whilst Mannequin’s roots are firmly planted within the horror genre, it also embodies an element of an uneasy thriller, sure to give even the toughest crowd goosebumps.
This upcoming film was shot on a Mannequin farm with over 25,000 mannequins on it, so it definitely wasn’t for the faint-hearted. Even during the day, the location was creepy, let alone when set for a horror shoot.
Mannequin is due to have a cast & crew premiere in October with some very special guests being invited.
Mannequin is a fresh take on the classic horror movie trope, where the car breaks down, there’s no signal and it’s safe to assume that something terrible is about to happen. This film brings a new way of looking at classic horror whilst touching on an issue in everyday life. Whilst everyone strives for perfection the themes of this film shows what can happen when it goes too far, in the most horrific way possible, of course.
Immediately following the premiere, the film is due to be released on Amazon Prime and discussions are underway to select distributors to take the film worldwide.
The film features Laurence R. Harvey as Nathan Roper, Pete Bennett as Adrian Roper, Dani Thompson as Una Roper and Megan Lockhurst as Jade. The debutant actors Cheryl Neve, Lote Pupola, Regan Tibbenham and Adrianna Edwards play the remaining models that set off on the lucrative job.
We are also still running a campaign to offer the chance to get some last-minute perks including VIP tickets to the premiere which the Director has planned as something out of this world. So, check out the campaign via the link below.
