Modern take on a cult classic

The Challenge

One of the UK's largest producing theatres required a run of impactful Cinema and TV spots to celebrate the staging of the iconic horror classic The Exorcist.

The Solution

We scripted and storyboarded a 70s movie style scenario, sourced an atmospheric Georgian house and shot at 4K. The final advert was premiered during Birmingham’s Electric Cinema’s horror weekend to great effect.
