Ingrid Pitt Sinks Teeth Into ‘Urban Creep’
25 Oct 2007 :
Ingrid Pitt
Veteran horror actress Ingrid Pitt (Countess Dracula, The Wicker Man) has joined the cast of October Eleven Pictures upcoming horror movie ‘Urban Creep’.

The Polish born actress rose to fame in the 1970’s when she played a female vampire in Hammer Film’s horror thriller ‘The Vampire Lovers’. The box office smash led to her donning the fangs again for roles in ‘The House That Dripped Blood’ and ‘Countess Dracula’

Special effects expert and puppeteer Michael McCormick (Return Of The Jedi, The Muppet Show) has also signed up to provide special effects for the movie.

Produced by Jonathan Figgis, the movie tells the tale of the citizens of Sewark City, who have succumbed to a viral infection that ignites in them a desire to consume living flesh. A small band of un-infected civilians reside at the northern tip of the city, amongst them an elderly Polish lady (Pitt) and her granddaughter Katya, to be played by Maria Manton. The group join forces, bracing themselves for inevitable assault, with one common purpose: survival.

The script will be co-written by British horror writer Shaun Hutson, whose novels include ‘Exit Wounds’ and ‘A Necessary Evil’, and October Eleven’s Jason Figgis, who will also direct.

‘Urban Creep’ will begin filming in Summer 2008, on location in Wicklow.

The company has also recently wrapped filming on feature film ‘Blood’.

The film, shot at Charleville Castle in Tullamore, follows a brother who is trying to come to terms with his sister’s absence after her death, as family secrets and the circumstances of her death begin to come to light.

Starring Emmett Scanlan (Studs, 3 Crosses), Gail Brady (W.C.), Eoin Macken (Studs) and Oliver McQuillan, the film is written and directed by Maria Manton and produced by Jonathan Figgis and Dudley Stewart.

‘Blood’ will commence post-production at October Eleven Picture’s Studios at the beginning of November, with final mixing at Yard Media.

The October Eleven team will also begin shooting their next feature ‘Handheld’, in late October/ early November on location at the Ring of Kerry and in studio space at Dublin’s Docklands.

‘Handheld’, produced by Jonathan Figgis and directed by Jason Figgis, will star Maria Manton and Steve Gunn.

In other October Eleven news, Showcase Entertainment Inc. will screen feature length documentary ‘Cursed’ at the American Film Market on 31st October 2007.

The doco follows paranormalist Uri Geller as he is invited to present a TV feature investigating the dark side of the city of Venice. This film follows Uri Geller's preparation and subsequent trip to Venice and is interspersed with disturbing images from the 'footage' that Geller later discovered.

Produced by Jonathan Figgis and directed by Jason Figgis.
