Two Females Required for Beguiled - Student Horror About Domestic Violence

Manchester, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

Heavily inspired by the Silent Hill game franchise, I'm making a horror short for my final project at university. It will be made in an attempt to get funding for the feature length version once I'm out of uni.

This film will require HIGH amounts of emotion for extended periods from the actresses. We will make it as comfortable for you as possible and will be adhering to COVID restrictions on set. Naturally, as it's a horror film, there will be a few graphic scenes with a fair amount of gore including a hand popping out of the protagonist's chest.

Auditions will take place in Manchester, UK but self-tapes will be accepted from other parts of the UK too.

We hope to submit the short to as many festivals as possible and will be showing it online too.

Filming is planned for mid to late January with table reads and rehearsals in mid December. Auditions will take place through November.

Travel expenses will be covered and food will be provided.

StarNow note for talent: Please note the Advertiser has indicated this production contains strong themes including domestic violence. Applicants may wish to clarify details regarding these themes with the advertiser before attending an audition.

Lillith Sunderland

Lillith is a well-spoken, quiet individual. she has a burning passion inside but has been shoved into submission by her husband, Aidan, for the past 7 years. Her parents were abusive to one another so she sees this as normal. After getting her dream job offer as a computer engineer for Microsoft, she is transported to the demons inside her head to break free of her chains as well as her abusive relationship. Think Taylor Anya Joy's role in Split or Florence Pugh in Midsommar

Female, aged 21 to 30

Sandra Mason

Sandra is a rather stuck up, prim and proper woman, Lillith's mother. She's a strict catholic who is also abused by her husband but feels it's too late for her to escape his clutches. In this short, however, she is absolutely terrified, at rock bottom, looking into the face of death. We witness a conversation between her and Lillith in the last few moments of her life before she's pulled off-screen and mauled to death. This is very highly emotional. Almost insanity.

Female, aged 50 and over
