HOUSE OF BLACK WINGS
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
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
