Writer/Director Katie Bonham is a talented filmmaker with an undeniable penchant for horror and things that go bump in the night. We’re lucky enough to have her on board as a member of the Cinema Chords team and we are immensely proud of her filmmaking accomplishments.
Her first short Doll saw her burst onto the horror scene and gain recognition for her creative eye. As a semi-finalist of the 666 Shortcuts to Hell 2 competition, Bonham’s second short film The Porcelain Ground was shortlisted for a Fright Meter Award. As for her third short, The Paper Round, has continued to gain her recognition on the festival circuit and is one of the only two shorts that have been selected to play during this years Frightfest Glasgow, the popular horror string of the world famous Glasgow Film Festival. The Porcelain Ground will play to a sold-out audience on Friday 27th February and we will be there to cheer her on.
It would appear that there is no slowing the young filmmaker down and in recognition of the sixth annual Women in Horror Recognition Month (WiHM), we are delighted to bring you information about her fourth upcoming short KEEPSAKE. Continuing her love for the paranormal, Keepsake tells the story of a woman who claims that a poltergeist haunting her house is the spirit of her dead husband and allows him to take reign of the household. Intrigued by the story a struggling journalism student decides to take on herself to reveal the truth.
Starring in the film will be Hellraiser and Nightbreed star Nicholas Vince who will be playing the role of ‘The Husband’. He will be joined by Jennie Lathan who has starred in a number of short films including Beryl (2012) and Guns, Gangsters and Zombies (2012). They will be joined by Lexie Lambert, a very talented actress who starred with Ray Winstone in Cold Kiss.
