Porto, Portugal. March 4, 2017. Caught, the alien home invasion thriller from award-winning director Jamie Patterson’s (Fractured, City of Dreamers) has won the Critics’ Award at the 2017 Fantasporto–Oporto International Film Festival. Caught screened as an official selection in the Fantasy Films programme.
Caught stars Mickey Sumner (Frances Ha, End of the Tour, The Mend), April Pearson (Skins, Tormented, Age of Kill), Cian Barry (Dr. Foster, Nina Forever), Ruben Crow (Doctors, Austenland), David Mounfield (This is Jinsy), and newcomers Aaron Davis and baby Regan Brown. It was filmed in East Sussex, UK, where aliens were sighted in 1967.
While on an afternoon walk with their children, two small town reporters notice the military camped on a hilltop. Debating the possible significance of this activity, they answer their door when two unusual strangers come knocking and find themselves held hostage in their own home.
“Such an honour to win the Critics Award at Fantasporto. It’s been an amazing week and this is the icing on the cake,” said Director Jamie Patterson. “Thank you to Fantasporto for this award. It means the world to myself and the rest of the cast and crew of Caught.”
Working with director Jamie Patterson must have been such a pleasure that the producers of his latest film Caught and his writer of his debut feature film, Fractured, are willing to work with him again. Christina O’Shea-Daly of Dandelion Productions and Jeremy Davis of Gael Films will back his next feature film, a psychological horror thriller called The Kindred, written by Christian J. Hearn.
The Kindred follows a woman suffering from amnesia as she pieces together the events that led to her father’s suicide only to be haunted by the ghosts of children that she begins to suspect were murdered by him.
Christina O’Shea-Daly said, “I had the pleasure of meeting Christian on the set of my latest movie, Caught, directed by Jamie Patterson. I’m excited of the prospect of collaborating again with a talented director like Jamie and his fantastic team! The Kindred is a heart-wrenching page turner! Christian is a gifted writer who knows how to pull an audience to the edge of their seats.”
Production begins this Spring in the Brighton and London areas of the UK.
Caught had its World Premiere at the Fantasporto Int’l Film Festival on February 28th. ScreenAnarchy will have a review of the film to follow.
