One man’s silence buries the truth about a tragic hunting accident and leads to a group of middle-class townies becoming isolated and out-of-their-depth in the Scottish Highlands. The walls of 'Coldfell', a disused hunting lodge in mid-repair, is all that stands between them and local hunters hell-bent on bloody revenge. A place that had promised a brighter future for troubled couple Sam and Heather - a wellness retreat for stressed out city folk - has become a retreat of a more harrowing kind for them and their friends.
'Coldfell' is Mark A.C. Brown’s award-winning screenplay (Best Unproduced Screenplay NOLA Horror Filmfest) set amidst the vast, unforgiving beauty of the Scottish Highlands. It is a bloody, rural, revenge thriller in the tradition of ‘Straw Dogs’ and ‘Deliverance’; an inventive and suspenseful allegory about the consequences of prejudicial intolerance, and a fatal desire for self-preservation.
"Coldfell is a cross-over movie that promises to have broad audience appeal" says Producer, James Rumsey "cineastes that enjoy taut, well-crafted thrillers that make you think have plenty to get their teeth into, whilst horror fans that demand a relentless and bloody final reel will not be disappointed either".
Director, Brad Watson says of the project: "Coldfell appeals to both sides of my directing personality - the side that wants a relatable ‘reason’ for the story to exist and the side that loves the cinematic experience turned up to the max! Our characters a dropped into an epic, and imposing landscape - what the Scots call MAMBA country (Miles And Miles of Bugger All) - where we will borrow composition and scale from the Western titans John Ford and Sergio Leone (in particular 'Once Upon A Time in The West').
