Halloween horror from local filmmakers
A SPINE chilling trailer for a horror film shot in Dorset and the New Forest is due to be unleashed next Wednesday 31st October, Halloween.
Territory, which has been three years in the making, was written, produced and directed by local film graduates, Thomas Saville and Robert Vassie.
Thomas, 26, who lives in Three Legged Cross, is self employed and works with visual effects and as an editor, as well as being employed at a Verwood supermarket for a few hours a week.
"I always wanted to make a horror film and I am very proud of Territory," he said.

Four cars lie stranded on a dark and misty country road in the middle of the night - the aftermath of a treacherous collision. Tensions run high as the survivors struggle to resolve the situation, but they soon realise that the worst is far from over.
Tired, cold and miles away from the nearest town, the true danger begins to dawn on them as they find themselves being picked off by a group of demonic creatures, disturbed by the fact that humans have strayed into their murky territory. The film is a self financed, low budget production starring a mix of local and national acting talent - Sylvie England, Karen Morgan, Dave Taylor, Eifion Melnyk-Jones, William Ashbey, Victoria Eldon, Charlotte Eldon, Steve Smith, Sharon Muiruri and Jon Samuel.
Creature puppets also feature in the film.
Tom said; "No matter how good visual effects are, they can never beat the real thing and audiences are more likely to feel scared and buy into the experience when you physically have a monster clawing at someone's flesh."
Rob added: "We got through a lot of fake blood whilst shooting this film!"
In 2008 Tom was involved with another film shot locally called Small Town Folk which went to DVD.
He is hoping Territory will not only do that, but he is hoping to get it to Cannes next year.
The film will be completed around March 2013, and then Tom is hoping for a local screening.
