You don’t hear the intimidating gravelly voice of Michael Ironside in enough films, but Uncork’d Entertainment is doing their best to change that. In September they’ll be distributing the new found-footage horror film HELLmington, where Ironside has a role.
Hellmington Asylum was shut down in 1985. In 2009, it was briefly reopened as a tourist attraction for horror fanatics called “Psychological Extreme Haunted House” (unfortunately the new owners weren’t very creative, and “Hellmington” would have done fine on its own). That venture didn’t last very long — after someone disappeared inside it, the bad press forced them to close.
The missing woman was Katie Owens, horror fanatic, who just had to document the experience of Hellmington for all her online fans. Katie is gone, but the video she shot was recently found. What did she uncover about Hellmington and where did she go? Ask Michael Ironside.
HELLmington stars Shadowhunters’ Nicola Correia-Damude as Katie, and was written and directed by Justin Hewitt-Drakulic and Alex Lee Williams. Look for it September 10 on DVD and VOD, thanks to Uncork’d Entertainment.
On June 6, 1985 Hellmington Asylum closed their doors for good. On June 6, 2009 it was re-opened as the very first Psychological Extreme Haunted House, where people could live out their own personal horror fantasies.
Willing participants would be pushed to their limits, blurring the lines between what’s real and what’s in your head. Katie Owens, a true horror fanatic and online blogger was invited as one of the first people to partake in the Hellmington experience.
