SALFORD FILM ON CORONATION STREET
 

Star date: 22nd March 2010

THE CORRIE HORROR SHOW

Splintered, a new horror film made by Salford based production company Not A Number, is being featured on episodes of Coronation Street this Friday.

Corrie characters, Sian, Sophie, Ryan and Lee, are shown watching the scary movie on DVD and discussing its horrid details as the tension cranks up in the room…

Full story here…


SPLINTERED

Inner demons, beasts, psychopaths and teen terror come to Coronation Street this week as a new feature length horror film not only gets a plug and a preview on the top soap but also forms part of the plot.

"I'm really chuffed Splintered plays a key role in Friday's episode of Coronation Street" says director Simeon Halligan "And what's ironic is that the background to the story in Splintered is very much about coming to terms with your own sexuality. This nicely echoes Corrie's Sophie Webster as she begins to realise her own sexual identity.

"It's also interesting that the lead character in Splintered is also called Sophie - and of course, having worked at Granada TV for many years myself and actually on Corrie itself back in the nineties - it seems fitting Splintered gets a nod on The Street before its UK release in July."

Originally Corrie's people phoned Not A Number seeking any scary film to show, as the Crescent based production company also stages the annual Grimmfest horror film festival. But Not A Number jumped at the chance to preview Splintered to Corrie's nine million or so viewers.

"You have to make the most of every potential plug" explains Splintered's producer Rachel Richardson "It seemed a perfect tie in for us and a great way to give people a little sneak peak."

Starring Stephen Martin Walters (Hannibal Rising) and Holly Weston (Madonna's Filth and Wisdom), and made by the producer of Scum and Half Light, Splintered is released in cinemas in July and will be shown at the Salford Film Festival. The blurb says it features `the mind of a deranged killer in the body of a wild beast' and promises `he'll rip you apart'. Nice family viewing…
