Sword & Cloak Productions has completed their second feature-length movie, and it is now available on DVD! Buy it here.

After a tragic act of violence cuts short her music career, Kate Stone is returning to a city full of ex-fans and ex-friends. Taking shelter with her last friend, a struggling artist named Robyn Huck, the two women work to restore the aging courtyard apartment building Robyn has inherited. But a terrible secret infests the venerable structure, and soon Kate will be haunted by horrific dreams, sinister apparitions, and the sounds of something moving in the walls. She will be dragged into a confrontation not only with her own dark past, but the unspeakable nightmare that lurks beyond the walls!



House of Black Wings is a character-driven Lovecraftian ghost story. Inspired by the social drama of Polanski's The Tenant and Larry Fessenden's Habit, the surreal images of Argento's Suspiria and Fulci's The Beyond, and the pervasive menace of Asian ghost stories, it is a nightmare of urban paranoia, loss of identity, and the blurred line between creativity and madness.

As filmmakers, we have a deep respect for this genre and we want this movie to explore truths about the human condition and the culture we live in, as well as dig into the shadowy places of our psyche. We are working to tell a story about complex characters who reflect the people we know, and we want to take our audience on a dark journey of fear and fascination, dragged through the brambles of imagination and into the void beyond.
