Independent British Fantasy-Action film Knightfall – Proof of Concept Trailer lands online!

London UK, 24 May 2016: Knightfall is a feature film that combines the swords and sorcery of The Princess Bride with the the blood and guts action of Evil Dead 2 .

The film will follow the journey of three courageous Knights, thrust into turmoil within a dreaded forest littered with gruesome and bloodthirsty creatures. The film is currently in pre-production.

Ben Campbell, Director & Co-writer said: We want to create something fresh and exciting that will introduce audiences to a new fantasy world full of possibilities. Pete and I took inspiration
from the films we grew up with , action movies such as
Predator and Die Hard. We love the characters and simplicity of those films, especially as they are set largely in one location with a simple set up that motivates the characters from A to B (“get to the chopper!”) with lots of carnage in-between. If those films are the essence of Knightfall then fantasy films such as Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal and The Princess Bride are its spirit.”

Synopsis: The Princess is missing … she has run away, pregnant with her first child. The King has sent three of his bravest Knights to find and return his daughter to the palace before she gives birth. The quest is supposed to be simple, yet it takes the Knights several months to find and capture the clever Princess. With only a few days until the Princess is due, the exhausted Knights and their prisoner discover a short cut through the mysterious Oublié forest; a place of black magic and blood hungry monsters.

The short cut through Oublié Forest is the last few hours of the Knights quest. These chilling hours are told in Knightfall .

Peter Appleyard, Co-Writer said: The entire process of creating Knightfall has been a dream come true. We set out to write a fast-paced adventure story that borrows from some of our favourite action and fantasy films, whilst putting our own spin on things. The most fun has been giving each of the creatures an individual voice, look and fighting style, and also developing the back stories of our three Knights in peril as well as the Princess. I can’t wait to share this peek at our story with audiences.”

A proof of concept trailer has been created in order to showcase the vision and passion behind the Knightfall feature film concept , which is currently seeking funding . The film makers released the trailer on 20 May 2016.
