Ed Boase talks about TRICK OR TREAT on the BritFlicks Podcast.
TRICK OR TREAT received its World Premiere at The Marbella International Film Festival in October 2019.
Synopsis: Taking place over the course of a single psychedelic Halloween night in ghostly Blackpool, TRICK OR TREAT sees depressed Greg Kielty’s life get turned upside down when his estranged brother Dan turns up, claiming to have drunkenly run someone over. But has Dan just murdered a gangster's son? Or maybe there's an even more sinister explanation.
TRICK OR TREAT received its World Premiere at The Marbella International Film Festival in October 2019 and was incredibly well received, scooping numerous awards including Best Feature Film, Best Actress for Frances Barber and Best Supporting Actor for Kris Marshall.
TRICK OR TREAT is the first feature written and produced by Geraint Anderson (aka ‘Cityboy’), a former-stockbroker-turned-author, and was partly inspired by the struggles of middle-age and its impact on mental health.
Writer and producer Geraint Anderson notes:
“This film takes viewers on an intense, humorous rollercoaster ride that is full of twists and turns, but at its heart is an exploration of the mid-life crisis in all its crazy glory.”
Lead actor and producer Craig Kelly adds: "I've never had more fun on set and I believe this film is sprinkled with magic. As a local boy, it was very important to set this film in Blackpool; there is no town like it in Britain and it provided the perfect backdrop for this story.”
Evolutionary Films Managing Director, Diane Shorthouse says: “We’re very excited to be bringing this highly entertaining and darkly comedic British film to audiences across the UK and we hope people enjoy the ride as much as we have!”
