When an older man living alone in the woods saves the life of a young woman, they are forced to coexist. Chaos ensues when the woman makes a terrifying discovery behind the man's cabin unleashing something truly haunting.
Woodland Grey is a stylized psychological thriller with horror elements throughout about a middle-aged hermit who lives alone in the deep woods. He rescues and eventually befriends a young hiker only to have her release a supernatural force in the form of a feral child from an old shed behind his cabin.
They flee the cabin in an attempt to escape the relentless pursuit of the child and their own disturbing inner demons.
Woodland Grey is very much a character-based film that deals with themes of guilt, grief and regret. The intensity of these emotions can cause strong physical manifestations and affect the very quality of our lives. Our lead characters demonstrate a desperate yearning to self medicate the darkest times in their lives through isolation. This is something that is so universal and ripe for the medium of film.
Award winning Montreal director Adam Reider will be at the directing helm of Woodland Grey with production set for the fourth quarter of 2017. Franky Films will be collaborating with both Spectropia Pictures and independent producer John Fallon, creator of one of the most successful horror movie websites in the world “Arrow in the Head”, part of the Joblo Movie Network.
We have acquired a letter of interest from B-list cult horror actor, Bill Moseley (Devil’s Rejects, The Night of the Living Dead) and mega YouTube influencer, Nicole Arbour, to star as our leads. Having a Multi-Channel Network (a company that represents YouTube influencers) to target social media platforms and a traditional distributor to target traditional platforms will allow us to exploit all avenues of distribution. With this type of talent attached, Woodland Grey has the potential to raise the company’s profile internationally and help increase the film’s marketability and profit.
We will be experimenting with Virtual Reality (VR) technology and storytelling to enhance the audience experience and in developing an innovative promotional strategy that touches on all avenues of new media.
