The School Teaser Trailer is Now in Session

August 18, 2017
Freaked out by creepy kids? Here's a hundred of 'em.

The feature directorial debut of award-winning filmmaker Storm Ashwood, The School is a dark fantasy that sees a successful doctor (Megan Drury), wracked with grief over being unable to help her ill son, drawn into a surreal parallel world populated by the spirits of lost and abandoned children. There she must overcome demons both figurative and literal in her quest to save her boy.

Veteran Australian actor Nicholas Hope (Bad Boy Bubby) and Home and Away alumni  Will McDonald co-star in the film, a co-production between Bronte Pictures and Lunar Pictures. An ambitious and visually striking work – think Lord of the Flies by way of Guillermo del Toro and you’re on the right track – The School was filmed on the grounds of the notorious – and reputedly haunted Gladesville Hospital in Sydney, which lends its own frisson of fear to the proceedings.

FilmInk was invited on set to witness some of the production in progress, and we can tell you, this one looks pretty special. In the meantime, keep track of production over on Facebook and Instagram.

The School is in cinemas December 6, 2018
