Clay Epstein’s Film Mode Entertainment and Luke Sparke’s Sparke Films announce the AFM market premiere, initial sales and distribution news, exclusive first look imagery, video and a special promo premiere of the brand new, horror film, SCURRY. The movie stars Jamie Costa (Kenobi: A Star Wars Story, Bring Him To Me) and Emalia (Paramount+ Paper Dolls). SCURRY was written by Tom Evans (Bring Him To ME), directed by Luke Sparke (Occupation, Occupation Rainfall) and is currently in post-production It has already been picked up for full distribution across Australia and New Zealand by Umbrella Entertainment (Talk To Me).
“We’re thrilled to be continuing our relationship with one of the most talented filmmakers working today. Luke is a visionary and SCURRY is going to scare up new fans.” Said Epstein
“Umbrella is very excited to add the highly original, edge of your seat thriller SCURRY to our slate and hope this collaboration results in a longstanding relationship with Luke and his team. Luke’s storytelling and world building get bigger and bolder with each release, and SCURRY raises the bar. We can’t wait to bring this film to Australian and New Zealand theatrical audiences in 2024.” Said Ari Harrison, General Manager of Umbrella Entertainment.
“It’s great to be able to delve into horror elements in this claustrophobic film. Tom’s script jumped off the page and it’s been amazing to bring together a tight knit crew to shoot this film in a very unique way. It’s fully immersive being in these tunnels and the camera never cutting – it was a challenge to film for sure!” Said producer Carly Sparke.
In SCURRY, the city is under attack by a monstrous threat. Two strangers find themselves trapped below ground during the chaos. Badly injured and with limited resources, they must navigate a treacherous, narrowing tunnel in hopes of finding an exit before they bleed out. Fear and desperation consume them as the threat closes in and they soon discover they have more to fear than each other.
Scurry was shot in Queensland, Australia at the Sparke Films studio on the Gold Coast. The film was shot in real-time in a one shot take.
Coming off of the global success of the OCCUPATION RAINFALL franchise and Sparke’s new feature film BRING HIM TO ME along with a multi-picture deal between Film Mode and Sparke Films, SCURRY is set to thrill to the international marketplace and global audiences alike.
