White Settlers is an indie horror film from the United Kingdom. This title was shot in Manchester and White Settlers will have its World Premiere in London, at the Film4 Frightfest; this film festival begins in August. White Settlers involves a British couple hunted by a group of masked men, in the Scottish Highlands. A trailer for the film is available here. The story begins with light tones.
