Widowed Audrey retreats to an isolated Welsh cabin after a failed suicide attempt, to recuperate. Still haunted by the tragic death of her husband and struggling with her psychosis, she begins to hear strange noises.
In the 1840s, Cranford is ruled by the ladies. They adore good gossip; and romance and change is in the air, as the unwelcome grasp of the Industrial Revolution rapidly approaches their beloved rural market-town.
Ten stories are woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only to terrorize unsuspecting residents.
I saw this film at this year's Frightfest, and the film was screened right after two over the top funny horror films.
However, the audience immediately embraced this wonderful tale with a great performance from Jean Marsh.
Not knowing anything about the film, I was expecting a horror film in the style of her husband's films (Neil Marshall, director of The Descent). On the contrary, Axelle Carolyn gives us a beautiful dramatic tale and her direction is flawless.
She has a great career ahead of her and I would like to see her directing features in the future.
