HP Lovecraft meets The Raid in new horror ‘Black Site’

by Phil Wheat

AirPick Pictures and Tom Paton Film have announced the start of production of their forthcoming movie Black Site, a supernatural action best described as “HP Lovecraft meets The Raid“, starring Mike Beckingham (Pegasus Bridge, Redwood) and directed by Tom Paton (Redwood, Pandorica).

From the press release:

BLACK SITE is the story of Ren Reid, orphaned as a child when a member of an ancient race known as The Elder Gods killed her parents. Twenty Years have passed and a fractured Ren now works for Artemis, an organization set up to contain and then deport these entities back to where they came from. When the Elder God responsible for Ren’s childhood tragedy is caught and brought to The Black Site for deportation, Ren must partner with an unlikely ally as the last line of defense against a wave of worshippers hell bent on releasing their deity back into the world. With the facility on lockdown and the enemy closing in, Ren has just hours to avenge her parents and prove once and for all that she is worthy of wearing the Artemis uniform.

Mike Beckingham stars in the movie, as a follow-up to his first collaboration with Tom Paton, REDWOOD (set for a major release later this year}. Early reactions to that movie have been beyond positive, setting the table for this larger, more ambitious production to introduce audiences to the rich & detailed world Paton has created in BLACK SITE. (An expansive, potential franchise starter that spans a wealth of known mythology weaved in amongst something unexpected).

Black Site has entered production with a Summer 2017 shoot date, slated for a 2018 release. Further cast will be announced soon.
