Populace


No Comments

We are proud to announce that Populace has been officially selected for the Sci-Fi-London film festival. Stay tuned for more information.

Mankind is reluctant to take responsibility for ravaging the planet. Populace imagines a world where the solution is to impose a strict genetic caste system, a eugenics policy that keeps numbers below the tipping point and protects the greater good. Clones are manufactured to carry out this work. Must we give away our freedoms to protect the earth from mankind?

Genre: Sci-fi
Directed By: Aaron Bevan-Bailey
Release Date: 2015

The Herd


No Comments

The Herd: A brutal horror film with a compassionate message.

Inspired of a frustration at the mainstream refusal to accept the sentiency of other species, THE HERD takes that anger and throws it back at the masses. This a film which inflicts every torture suffered by dairy cows on to a group of captive humans.
THE HERD is written by Ed Pope and directed by Melanie Light, and features the considerable acting talents of Pollyanna McIntosh (The Woman, Filth), Victoria Broom (ABCs of Death 2, Stalled), Jon Campling (Sleeping Dogs, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows) and Charlotte Hunter (Dungeons and Dragons, Vitality). The score is by Laurent Bernard of the band Gallows.
Imprisoned within inhuman squalor with other women; Paula’s existence and human function is abused as a resource by her captors.
Escape, on any level, is hopeless as the women are condemned to a life of enforced servitude at the whims of their imprisoners for one reason only – their milk.
Enslaved, inseminated and abused – every facet of their life is violated. At first the premise seems exaggerated and absurd; but is, in fact, disgusting in its stark normality.
Deliberately avoiding the lack of finesse associated with “torture porn” and sexploitation, THE HERD eschews these in favour of a vicarious descent into the visceral nightmare of relinquishing the most innate rights of existence.
A dark and transgressive horror short film, THE HERD also asks questions as to how we approach the sentiency of other beings and the importance of the concept of individual freedoms in modern society.
