Children of Sorrow (2014)
Jourdan McClure‘s Children of Sorrow (2014) is looking very twisted, demented and creepy. I do not like horror movie themes like this because of the surreal nature. If you are into these types of themes, you will definitely love this horror movie. Bill Oberst Jr. stars as the cult leader and he alone is scary enough in a horror film. Children of Sorrow is set to release on DVD and VOD platforms this upcoming March 4, 2014. This horror movie stars Bill Oberst Jr., Hannah Levien and Whitney Nielsen.
From the Press Release:
The film, which director Jourdan McClure describes as “a slice of bad life,” was picked up by After Dark and Lionsgate after festival wins at Sacramento Horror Film Festival and Hollywood’s Shockfest Film Festival which included two Best Feature awards, a Best Actor Award for Bill Oberst Jr. and a Best Acting award for the ensemble cast.
Bill Oberst Jr. says the role of cult leader Simon Leach was “personal and terrifying.” The actor lived in isolation during the shoot in order to get into the mindset of the Jim Jones-like Leach. Director McClure and writer Ryan Finnerty are quoted on the film’s IMDb page as saying that the film’s most disturbing scenes were not in the original screenplay; “We threw most of the script out the window once we got to the desert and rewrote based on the actual personalities of our actors. If it feels real, that may be why.”
European viewers will have their introduction to Children Of Sorrow this fall; the film will screen at Europe’s largest horror con, The Weekend Of Horrors in Germany, where Oberst will be a celebrity guest.
