DEER PARK SHOOT ...

We had a superb shoot for the picture in Deer Park Hotel and Golf Course in Howth, Co. Dublin on Saturday 19th January 2013. The temperatures were hovering around the 0 mark and we were shooting Winter for late Spring. We had some very shivery Actresses on location. Here are a few stills from the shoot, which went...brilliantly.


Michelle Miley as ''Susan Dillon'' is left for dead.


Niamh Geaney as the feral vampire ''Damaris''.

THE CONDUIT SPEAKS Predictions 2013

We are thrilled that Chris Conduit of The Conduit Speaks has included our film in his Best Films Predictions for 2013 :




THE ECSTASY OF ISABEL MANN
DIRECTOR: Jason Figgis
STARRING: Ellen Mullen, Nicole Bermingham, and Kevin Buckley

WHAT I'M HOPING FOR: After 2012's RAILWAY CHILDREN, I'm more than a little jazzed to see what Figgis has up his creative sleeve. It's a vampire (possible coming of age) movie that promises its viewer "no sparkling." It's difficult in today's world to focus on the life and times of a teenage blood sucker without drawing the comparisons to a certain franchise of similar ilk. However, I'm confident this one will be rooted in a much more real universe and the recently released production stills promise lots of blood and pathos.


Niamh Geaney Joins The Film as Feral Vampire DAMARIS

BLOOD GUTS

A really cool write-up on our feature film 
from the guys at Blood Guts :


Vampires. Daylight. No Sparkles.

The last time we were asked to review a film by Jason Figgis, we had no idea how brilliantly disturbing his feature, Railway Children would be.

To read our full review of 'Railway Children' click HERE.

Now Figgis is returning with "Very Violent Teen Vampire Chiller" 'The Ecstasy of Isabel Mann'. The story of troubled teenager Isabel Mann (Ellen Mullen) who is seduced into an incredibly violent sect of day-walking vampires. Her class mates start to go missing and on the trail of the gruesome murders are two detectives; Witham (Neill Fleming), who believes her to be the prime suspect and Barrett (Matthew Toman), who has his doubts. Nothing is quite as it seems for those about her as the disturbed teenager runs amok killing at will in the woodlands by her home!   

She is aided by her vampire guides Mirjana (Mirjana Rendulic) and Alejo (Karim Elgendy) who are training her in the art of the kill, with horrifically bloody results for those closest to her.

Rest assured, this will be a vampire film with fangs and with Figgis back behind the camera this will be dark and messy. Check out the images to the right if you need more proof and we'll be looking out for this in the new year.
