Experiencing Interruptions?

The Amulet

Echoing the spirit of classic British and European horror films of the 1960’s and 1970's such as Italian gothic and Hammer, ‘The Amulet’ is a gothic horror tale set in a land far away and a time long past, where a lone vampire mysteriously seeks another of his kind.

'The Amulet' was made by Hallowquest Films in South Wales, with a crew of three, cast of four actors, and lots of enthusiasm following an inspirational trip to Transylvania.

Well received by audiences, 'The Amulet' has recently been nominee and runner-up for the Golden Stake Award for Short Film, at the International Vampire Film & Arts Festival 2019 in London. It was also selected for screening at Chapter Moviemaker, which qualified it for consideration by BAFTA.
