A trailer has been unveiled for Dracula Untold director Gary Shore’s Haunting of the Queen Mary, coming to theatres and VOD this month
Vertical will be giving Dracula Untold director Gary Shore’s new horror film Haunting of the Queen Mary a limited theatrical and VOD release on August 18th, and with that date just two weeks away we have gotten our hands on the trailer for the film. Check it out in the embed above!
The Queen Mary is a real luxury ocean liner that transported generations of the rich and famous before being docked in Long Beach, California… and it has been called one of the world’s most haunted places. A press release informs us that in the early twentieth century, shipping lines competed to be the fastest to complete a transatlantic crossing. But among the most famous record-holders was the RMS Queen Mary, which held the record for fourteen years, but now stands encased in concrete at Long Beach, California, where it has been used for many years as a luxury hotel and tourist attraction. The ship has a lengthy history of visitors reporting seeing ghosts and visions in its rooms and on its decks, making it the perfect setting for paranormal goings-on on the big screen.
Scripted by Stephen Oliver and Tom Vaughan, with revisions by Shore, the film Haunting of the Queen Mary tells a haunting story that is unraveled between the ship’s heyday in the late 1930s and the present and tells the story of two families whose lives become violently entangled. It chronicles the mysterious and violent events surrounding one family’s voyage on Halloween night in 1938, and how their destinies link up with those of another family onboard the ocean liner into the present day.
Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness), Joel Fry (Game of Thrones), Nell Hudson (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), William Shockley (Death in Texas) and Lenny Rush (Am I Being Unreasonable?) star.
Haunting of the Queen Mary was produced by Brett Matthew Tomberlin of Imagination Design Works, Thorsten Schumacher of Rocket Science; Lars Sylvest, Nigel Sinclair, and Nicholas Ferrall of White Horse Pictures; and Mali Elfman.
Vertical’s Peter Jarowey had this to say about the film: “We were immediately intrigued by the chilling, grisly tale that the filmmakers have woven together in Haunting of the Queen Mary. We’re sure audiences and horror fanatics will flock to experience it this summer.“
The producers added: “We were impressed by Vertical’s passion for Gary Shore’s intelligent and twisted take on a great English and American legend. We know this team will be the perfect US distribution partner in logging the next chapter of this vessel’s historic and haunted history.“
