Dig on the Trailer & One-Sheet for Heartless
Here’s one that I missed and was nowhere near my radar. The film is titled HEARTLESS and is a horror-dark fantasy that looks like it’s also pretty damn nightmarish. HEARTLESS is written and directed by Philip Ridley and stars Jim Sturgess, Clémence Poésy and Noel Clarke. Dig on the plot crunch:
HEARTLESS is the award winning dark fantasy movie by Philip Ridley. Set in East London and starring Jim Sturgess, Clémence Poésy, Noel Clarke, Joseph Mawle, Luke Treadaway, Eddie Marsan & Timothy Spall.
Story follows a troubled young man called Jamie, who has a birthmark on his face in the shape of a heart. It is a mark which has left him isolated and fearful, hiding from the world outside.
He lives in the East End of London, an area notorious for its violent hooded gangs. According to news reports, the gangs are now wearing demon masks. But, one night, Jamie discovers a terrifying truth: the gangs are not wearing masks. They are real demons. And when his mother is brutally attacked and killed by them, he vows vengeance and turns vigilante.
But the world outside is more of a nightmare than he ever imagined.
