Back in 2012 we reviewed the low budget Irish horror The Railway Children, directed by Jason Figgis. Despite its tiny budget the film was an impressive piece of work that proved Figgis’ directing skill, with his large ensemble cast of young Irish talent.

Off the back of The Railway Children Figgis and his team at October Eleven Pictures and Teen Feature Film Project have developed another feature, entitled The Ecstasy of Isabel Mann. The film is a gritty, modern take on the vampire genre that looks like a timely step forward for Figgis’ team. The film’s promotional stills and video clips hint at a film that promises to be as sensational as it is disturbing.

October Eleven Pictures have just launched their Indiegogo campaign to raise $20,000 to complete post-production on the film (including the main edit, grading and sound mixing.) The money will also help them shoot a new and particularly complex sequence. Donations such as this are essential to independent productions like Isabel Mann and the team have a plethora of gifts for those generous people who donate.

To find out more about donating towards the production of this exciting piece of Irish horror filmmaking, take a look at the production’s Indiegogo page. You can also follow the progress of the project on the film’s official website. Finally take a look at Jason Figgis’ Indiegogo pitch video below:
