The Light of Day, the mockumentary about the making of a low-budget vampire horror flick, will emerge from the dead of night to sink its teeth into the IFI Horrorthon next week. The film screens on Friday, 24th October 2014 at 19.10
The Light of Day follows the doomed crew of First Bite is The Deepest, a cheap vampire flick, as they struggle to make their film. With a hapless director, inexperienced crew, world-weary producer, star with a peanut allergy and the worst product placement deals in history there’s more horror behind the scenes than in the film. Things get truly perilous when the film’s private investors pull out halfway through shooting. Now it’s up to the only two sane people on the production to salvage the shoot.
The film was made by students on the Filmbase/Staffordshire University MSc Digital Feature Film Production Course. For further details on the course, click here.
