“What can I say to you, good people? It’s right here in black and white …” An exciting tale of revenge in this excellent short film The sermon, from British filmmaker Dean Puckett. This premiered a few years back and was rebroadcast by our friends on Short of the Week. Joining Mike Flanagan’s new series “Midnight Mass” – why not? In an isolated denomination in the English countryside, a powerful hate preacher prepares to give a sermon to his flock, but his daughter has a secret that could ruin them all. Cast Molly Casey & Denise Stephenson as Ella & Ava, plus Grant Gillespie as the priest. This was recorded on a 35 mm film that has a nice, grainy look. I will always have a good revenge story, especially one that follows through. That’s all I want to say before anyone sees it, as I do not want to give anything else away.
Thanks to Short of the Week for rebroadcasting this one. Intro from YouTube: “A young woman’s secret shakes an isolated church community in this popular horror.” The sermon is both written and directed by British-based filmmakers Dean Puckett – you can see more of his work on his Vimeo or visit his official website or follow him on Instagram @deanpuckett – he was also a co-founder of the company Grasp The Nettle. Produced by Rebecca Wolff. Recorded on 35 mm film and supported by Kodak & Arri. Featuring films by Ian Forbes and music by Bizarre Rituals (Brain Rays & Cape Khoboi). “The success of the film prompted Puckett to work on developing a feature version supported by BFI, the BBC, + Creative England’s iFeature.” For more information on the film, visit SOTW or Dean’s website.
