We were thrilled to receive an invite to the New Zealand premiere of The Devil's Rock. So we went along and had a great time hanging out with some truly talented moviemakers, actors and crew.
And to view the movie of course.
The Devil's Rock, which is supported by the New Zealand Film Commission takes place on a small island in the English Channel on the eve of D-Day.
Enter: Alluring demonic creature
Enter: Nazi SS officer with a penchant for the occult.
Enter: Allied soldiers on a critical mission
This is a great recipe - but you won't catch us handing out any spoilers (other than that it's not a kids' movie...).
Director Paul Campion and Producer Leanne Saunders said a few words about the production.
Filming was completed in two weeks. No mean feat, but not something Paul Campion ever wants to attempt again. Paul was very thankful that everyone he'd told about his ideas along the way had said "yes" and supported him. A great testament to the collaborative can-do spirit of the Wellington filmmaking community.
The movie features some devilishly superb make-up effects work by long time Weta technician Sean Foot.
Mary Pike did the production design, as she's previously done for Paul Campion's short film Eel Girl.
The movie is being distributed in the US and the UK and will be showing on 21 screens across New Zealand.
