The bloody fantasy feature film Knightfall, currently in pre-production in the UK, is now seeking funding.
The king sends three of his knights to find his pregnant daughter, who has run away into the dangerous woods full of black magic and monsters. Mayhem, insanity, and death ensues.
“We want to create something fresh and exciting that will introduce audiences to a new fantasy world full of possibilities. Pete (Appleyard) and I took inspiration from films we grew up with, such as Predator and Die Hard. We love the characters and simplicity of those films, especially as they are set largely in one location with a simple set up that motivates the characters from A to B (“get to the chopper!!”) with lots of carnage in between. If those films are the essence of Knightfall, then fantasy films such as Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal and The Princess Bride are its spirit,” said Ben Campbell, director and co-writer.
