Armaan Zorace, a Cannes nominated filmmaker is all set to kick off a unique horror movie – ‘Wraith’ for Zero Gravity Partners, a Los Angeles based production house. Written and directed by Zorace, ‘Wraith’ is a story about a couple that head to a town in the Middle East where an evil presence surrounds them.
Armaan reiterates that he would like to take the audience on a fresh journey presenting a distinguished perspective on how exorcisms are performed in the Islamic world, thus making a significant connection with the large fan base of horror fans in India as well.
Talking about the film, Armaan says, “ This film will make for a unique viewing and I am excited to attempt an unexplored territory. To film a live exorcism as part of the movie is extremely challenging but I want the audience to see on-screen exactly how I see it, without any prosthetics or visual effects. The “Ghost Cam” is something I’ve been working on for quite some time now and it’s been a truly fascinating experience. I’m also in the process of building on a new 4D sound, which explores 3D sound in a victim space. I’m working on sounds that have not been heard by humans before, like sounds from blackholes”.
The film will be shot across Seattle and Abu Dhabi starting early next year. With regards to the cast, the makers are in advanced talks with a mainstream Indian actress to star in one of the lead roles.
