 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'S NOTE

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'). 

A sense of unease builds in the first half - akin to 'Deliverance' and 'The Shining' - a visceral, palpable tension that breaks (with no sense of relief) at ‘the incident’. Here  audiences heart rates will be pushed to the limit, and starved of rest-bite until the end credits roll. In this relentless second half of the movie, my passion to deliver 'old school' action - reminiscent of the orchestrated mayhem of John McTiernan and James Cameron - will be fully realised.
Coldfell is not 'good guys versus bad guys' though, there are angels and demons on both sidesWhat elevates Coldfell beyond being just a cinematic ride is its emotional, and allegorical core.  The failures of man that lead to most conflicts in human history are held up for scrutiny:  our failure to communicate;  our failure to accept differences; and our failure to take responsibility for our actions. Through the plight of five friends barricaded  into a tired old hunting lodge with an identity crisis, what it holds up to the light is that people of different cultures and backgrounds would get along  just fine  but for the ignorant minority and those who stand by in silence and allow bloody conflict to unfold when it need not".
