❉ A supernatural ghost story starring Hélène Udy, star of 1981 cult horror classic My Bloody Valentine!
Award-winning film maker Kemal Yildirim’s latest film, supernatural ghost story The Haunting of the Lady-Jane, has just released its first Trailer.
Shot over Autumn 2021, the crowdfunded horror feature stars Hélène Udy from My Bloody Valentine, Dr Quinn Medicine Woman and Star Trek Deep Space Nine and is now touring festivals with its first screening at the Shawna Shea film festival 2022, ahead of a hopeful release date of late 2023.
The Haunting of the Lady-Jane is written and directed by award winning film maker Kemal Yildirim, who says, “The film’s original screenplay blends the traditional folklore ghost story with modern day themes of identity and the new female journey. Setting the project in rural England was a conscious choice. Taking inspiration from classic British literature, in particular M.R James, Vernon Lee and the 1989 production of the ‘Woman in Black’. Our story will focus on the folkloric elements of the British countryside whilst bringing a fresh new horror icon to the screen, making the audience feel the dread of the spirit RÀN.”
The film’s synopsis is as follows:
The peaceful waterways of the English countryside are plagued by legends of ‘RÀN’; a water spirit who collects the bodies of sinful people along the river. After a disturbing incident left Lily emotionally scarred and estranged from her parents she decides to begin her life again. Now a socially aware writer on female empowerment, she decides to tour the country with Zara, whose journey of self-identity has led her to fully explore life. Lily met Zara through her blog and decided to become travel companions. They see a chance to travel on a barge the ‘Lady-Jane’ on the English canals. Accepting an offer of a free passage up the British canals, Lily and Zara find themselves isolated with Willard, a religiously obsessed man whose past is murkier than the canal waters. The threesome’s journey upriver becomes increasingly bizarre and dangerous as Willard’s fascination with canal ghosts surfaces, and the spirit known as ‘RÀN’ torments them on their journey.
