What do Shooters think of this low-budget British indie horror film?

The film has been featured in local Kent media:
It can be seen on www.commonsensefilms.uk
The idea came from a lucid dream after watching The Texas Chainsaw Massacre multiple times as well as other classic horrors like The Exorcist, The Shining, The Evil Dead and Friday the 13th. The film was self financed and filmed on a Canon Legria HF G30. The budget was around £3000 and provided mostly by the benefactor and writer/director of the story, Michael Fenton Crenshaw and all the cast and crew worked free during the spring and summer of 2014. The refreshments and food were provided by the Assistant Producer/Director, Clive Curtis, who also provided many of the locations. Curtis played a key role in the film's production too. Most of the props, costumes and dead animals were provided by Kenton and Crenshaw. You will see various dead animals in the film that were found in the locations and used. They were then humanley disposed of. These include a cow, badger, rabbit and horse. The filming commenced in March and was completed in September of 2014. By that time Crenshaw was working on the project alone and struggling with the demons of mental health illness. He was helped by myself and Kenton and he finally beat the demons. It was almost as if the demon in the film had manifested itself into reality but mental illness affects most of us at some point with varying degrees.

The film was shot entirely on location in Kent and Greater London, making the most of the beautiful Kent countryside. It was filmed in Eynsford, Farningham, Shoreham, West Kingsdown, Darenth Valley, Hartley, Longfield, Bromley and Orpington.
The project was completed in October of 2017 after problems with the post production, it was finally released through commonsensefilms.uk. The whereabouts of Michael Fenton Crenshaw is uncertain but films are still being uploaded to the Demogorgon Youtube Channel.

Film brief synopsis:
When a group of friends take a long weekend break in the remote English countryside, the idyllic landscape that surrounds them triggers a sinister chain of events that tests their friendship and humanity itself. Their presence awakens an ancient demon curse that is slumbering in the shadows and seeks to take revenge on the souls of the innocent. Is one amongst the friends not as innocent as they might first appear? Can the friends escape the curse?
Dare you take The Left Hand Path? It will feed on your fear.......

Our ambition is for the film to inspire others by showing that despite whatever personal issues one has and mental illness one may have, there is always hope on the other side and to never give up on your dreams.
We hope some viewers may watch it over and over again. Some may say it is so terrible and badly acted but this may lead to a cult following.
All the best,

Nat and Kenton.

  • Blonde moment, sorry the film is called THE LEFT HAND PATH, thank you.
