A new horror film – The Cellar – will commence filming in County Roscommon in the next few weeks with some segments being shot in Boyle’s Lough Key Forest Park.
The storyline of The Cellar revolves around Keira Woods (played by Elisa Cuthbert), whose daughter mysteriously vanishes in the cellar of their new house in the country. Keira soon discovers there is an ancient and powerful entity controlling their home that she will have to face or risk losing her family’s souls forever.
The production is being supported by Screen Ireland, Epic Pictures, BCP Asset Management, The Wrap Fund and Wallimage, BNP Paribas Fortis Film Finance, VOO & BETV.
