Sword & Cloak Productions has announced the completion of principle photography on their second Feature Film, House of Black Wings. House of Black Wings is a character-driven Lovecraftian ghost story. Inspired by the social drama of Polanski’s “The Tenant” and Larry Fessenden’s “Habit”, the surreal images of Argento’s “Suspiria” and Fulci’s “The Beyond”, and the pervasive menace of Asian ghost stories.Â It is a nightmare of urban paranoia, loss of identity, and the blurred line between creativity and madness.
“After a tragic act of violence cuts short her music career, Kate Stone is returning to a city full of ex-fans and ex-friends. Taking shelter with her last friend, a struggling artist named Robyn Huck, the two women work to restore the aging courtyard apartment building Robyn has inherited. But a terrible secret infests the venerable structure, and soon Kate will be haunted by horrific dreams, sinister apparitions, and the sounds of something moving in the walls. She will be dragged into a confrontation not only with her own dark past, but the unspeakable nightmare that lurks beyond the walls!”
House of Black Wings was written & directed by David Schmidt whose previous films include the well-received horror shorts: Grave Invitations and The Lovecraft Syndrome, and the swashbuckling indie feature: Sword of Hearts.Â The movie’s talented cast includes Chicago actors: Leah Myette, Katherine Herrera, Michael Klug, James Polak, Tirf Alexius, and Amy Harmon.
