D&CFilm’s Simon Roger Key called The Nightman of Nevermoor at ‘quirky Spielbergian-romp’, when he reviewed it back in March 2014. Now there’s a new trailer to whet your appetite, pique your interest and tempt you into watching the film which is still making its round of festival, screenings and the like.
That wasn’t the only good thing Simon had to say about the Devon-made flick, which was filmed in just six days with a budget of £3,000.
‘Seek out this charming short, it will not disappoint, concludes Simon.
Now you can watch the 50-minute film online, too, so clear you diary and settle back for a bit of entertaining ‘you time’.
The film takes place in the fictional Devon village of Nevermoor. Eleven-year-old Nick Neary has come to live with his estranged father after two years apart.
But the village is in a dilemma; two film students have gone missing, locals claim an unknown figure has been lurking around the village at night, and an ominous self-proclaimed hunter has shown up to stalk it. As Nick and his father struggle to re-connect, they’re thrown into the unraveling mystery taking place within the village.
Directed by Chris Thomas, written by Richard Standen and with cinematography by Lee Thomas you can keep up with all Nightman of Nevermoor events on the Facebook page.
