A woman awakes after being drugged to find herself tied up in a dingy, decrepit room, with a psychopath for company. Locating her belongings, she attempts to reach the outside world, but instead, it reaches out to her.
The Cold Caller
Make Up Artist
The movie was written by Lee Charlish who also assumed directing and editing duties. It unashamedly pays homage to well-trodden horror tropes of the 70s and 80s to create a sense of immediate unease and familiarity, but with a modern-day twist.
The crew list was deliberately small as Lee Charlish used his own garage as The Psychopath’s Lair and space was limited. Months of production design occurred to ensure the set looked suitably grim, during which time all manner of creepy items were curated and strategically placed.
Assuming camera and sound recording duties, along with Lee, was Damien Trent, another Coventry based filmmaker (from Doktored Films).
