A romantic horror movie based on the legend of the “Pied Pieper of Hamelin” directed by Anthony Waller.
The director and screen writer Anthony Waller, known for his movie “An American Werewolf in Paris” revives the German legend of the “Pied Pieper of Hamelin”.
The movie is “The Piper”, a romantic horror movie, under the production of “Fetisoff Illusion- Europe” which is based in Cyprus and more specifically Limassol. “The Piper”, is the first of a new cinematographic franchise, which for the needs of the film we have gathered a renowned team of people. The actors and actresses have worked very professionally, the director once again has shown strong potential just like he did in “American Werewolf in Paris” but as well as in other films. The director of photography Roger Simons has created outstanding images as well as filming in breathtaking locations. The success of his first movie franchise could be the basis of a sequel, prequel, tv-series, theatre productions, merchandising, video games and theme parks” says the founder and owner of “Fetisoff Illusion- Europe” Gleb Fetisov.
With the love story of a young couple being at the forefront of the film, the action in the film is transferred from the German Medieval, in Hamelin of our days, where the ancient spirit of the Piper resurfaces and spreads horror to the residents, torturing anyone who managed to save themselves from the crimes and punishment of the past. “The story is riveting, out of this world, magical. You will witness death and other mysterious occurrences. The characters that are connected with the Piper. However, the viewers will always wonder if it is in fact the real Piper or a fiction of their imagination, the utilization of the culture of guilt that the Piper carried out for centuries” states Gleb Fetisov.
In the film of Anthony Walker (Who also co- signs the script) renowned British actress Elizabeth Hurley is in the lead role. Gleb Fetisov said “From the beginning Liz was our favorite actress for the part. It was not easy to secure Liz as she is on high demand and extremely busy. What we needed was famous actress which was age appropriate with a wide range of potential and a great sense of mystery that only Liz can manage with her expertise to create that sense of mystery around herself. The part is complicated and the heroine she portrays brings secrets from the past which will haunt her. They become a danger and a curse- as well as to her daughter.” The young couple are portrayed by Mia Jenkins (famously known from the Disney Channel) and Jack Stewart , we will also see Tara Fitzgerald known from the role in the Game of Thrones as Selyse Baratheon from the popular series “Game of Throne”. “We are targeting a mixed teen audience as well as viewers above the age of 20+. The successful strategical combination of horror and romance is confirmed by “Twilight”. It is the formula for the perfect for teenage dates. If done correctly it will attract a large portion of viewers.
The filming was done in Latvia and Germany (specifically in actual Hamelin), while the film is now in the last part of post-production in London, Hamburg and Moscow. “The budget of the film is respectable for the international independent film industry. At this stage we are perfecting the graphics, the colour grading is under way, recording music etc” According to Gleb Fetisov, the viewers are expected to view “The Piper” in cinemas in 2022.
