Director Statement

I’ve been a fan of cinema since I was a kid, as cliche as that might sound. I fell in love with video and cameras in 2020 and have been reading books, listening to podcasts, watching endless YouTube videos and even more films just to improve my skills as a filmmaker. I hope to make films and tv that I would love to pay to see myself.

‘The Ogress’ is inspired by the true story of Amelia Dyer, who was nick-named the ogress of Reading. In August 2018 I moved to Reading in Berkshire England. Whilst living there I came across the story of Amelia Dyer. When I read the story I couldn’t believe it was true, She had murdered over 400 children in the late 1800s and lived in that town. I started researching the story and even visited the Thames Valley police museum where they have evidence from her case. This very dark story was the influence for The Ogress, and I hope horror fans enjoy the film but also learn something new about some of England’s darker history.
