I am thrilled to be able to officially announce that HARRY PRICE in our animated documentary BORLEY RECTORY will be portrayed by - JONATHAN RIGBY.  Hammer horror / Amicus historian / enthusiast and author of the seminal study of English horror ‘English Gothic’ Jonathan was also a consultant on the Mark Gatiss BBC productions “A History of Horror’ and ‘Horror Europa’.  Jonathan will be amazing as Price, in fact when I told Reece Shearsmith he simply said ‘Perfect.’

BORLEY RECTORY Indiegogo - Final week from Carrion Film on Vimeo.

It’s the FINAL WEEK of our ‘spirited endeavor’! Campaign ends AUGUST 31st!

Campaign video for the Carrion Films Indiegogo campaign to raise the budget to make ‘Borley Rectory - The most haunted house in England’. The film features REECE SHEARSMITH, a narration from JULIAN SANDS and a score by STEVEN SEVERIN.

The film will be an animated documentary studying the famous haunting and apart from exploring the facts (and indeed myths) will also examine why this haunting- and tales from beyond the grave in general - continue to fascinate.

Please share and help raise awareness for our campaign! Help us raise more than a few ghosts this summer….

SCAYRECROW from Carrion Film on Vimeo.

'Scayrecrow' is a short animation that evokes the 19th century ‘Penny Dreadfuls’ to tell a Hammer - style romp about a ghostly Highwayman wreaking revenge on those who conspired to put him and his sweetheart in their graves.

A blend of traditional animation, painted backgrounds and rotoscoped actors, the film was hosted by FEARnet in 2013 but is uploaded here in its entirety for the BORLEY RECTORY Indiegogo campaign -igg.me/at/Carrion-Borley-Rectory/x/262667

If you like this, please help us make a new animation.

I can officially announce that REECE SHEARSMITH has joined the cast of BORLEY RECTORY…and has kindly offered to sign posters / DVD’s to support the campaign!
