“Misfits” star Antonia Thomas has wrapped filming on what will be her next project – an indie feature film titled “Thea,” co-starring alongside Luke Norris and Eileen Davies in what is said to be a London-set supernatural thriller, directed by Nirpal Bhogal (“Sket”) and produced by Uzma Hasan.
The film follows young couple, played by Antonia Thomas and Luke Norris, whose lives are turned upside down when they experience supernatural evils while struggling with the birth of their first child.
More via press release: “THEA is an evocative horror about the reality of the supernatural world encroaching into our everyday lives, a young family forced to turn to the occult to save their daughter from the supernatural entities that plague her. Taking as its inspiration the seminal horror films of the 70s, it is a chilling insight into the sacrifices we must make when we bring a new life into this world. Charlie (Antonia Thomas) and James (Luke Norris) are just starting their lives together; young and in love, they’re relishing having no responsibilities, until Charlie discovers that she is pregnant. Into their world comes Thea; a beautiful little girl. But her arrival brings with it terrifying entities that threaten their newly formed family, things that are beyond their understanding. Panic stricken, the young parents enlist the help of James’ estranged father Alistair, a dilapidated would-be occultist whose obsession drove his family apart and led his son to despise him. He diagnoses Thea as a beacon – a child whose very presence attracts the attention of the supernatural creatures that surround us. Charlie and James realise that they must dedicate their lives to protecting their unplanned daughter. As Thea grows into a young girl, the once playful entities that crowd around her become increasingly violent, vying for her attention and threatening her innocence. With Alistair at a loss, he turns to Elizabeth, an occult practitioner of great power who teaches Thea to control, rather than be afraid, of the dark forces around her. Thea’s newfound confidence unleashes something far more malevolent and terrifying than they have ever encountered.”
Co-produced by Gareth Roberts and Jezz Vernon, expect some beastly scares in this one, as Paul Hyett (“The Woman in Black”) has signed up to be the film’s creature designer.
The film is a co-production between Little House Productions and Moli Films, and is the first in a slate partnership between the 2 companies, which was announced by earlier this year.
