First look at new UK horror short ‘The Tour’

by Phil Wheat

Directing from a script that they co­-wrote together, Alex Mathieson and Damon Rickard have announced completion of filming on their short film The Tour. Jessica Cameron (Mr. Hush, Camel Spiders) and Heather Dorff (What They Say, Dry Spell) star in the film along with Tom Gordon who is primarily known for stage productions in Europe including Julius Caesar and Dealer’s Choice.

Two American tourists (Cameron & Dorff) visit the grounds of the haunted Darkmoor Manor but are unable to gain admittance. Later that day they are met by a handsome and charming local (Gordon) who tells them how he can get inside the infamous house. Upon entering the manor, they are met with untold horrors.

The Tour marks the third collaboration of Cameron and Dorff, the first being Intrusive Behavior and the second being Cameron’s award winning directorial debut, Truth or Dare. Filming took place in London earlier this month, lensed on location at the infamous Wymering Manor which is considered to be one of the most haunted locations in all of England.

Says co-writer/director Damon Rickard:

“Filming The Tour was an experience that will last a lifetime. The cast and crew we had couldn’t have given us more and it was more like a family having a blast than a film set. I can’t wait for people to see it.”
