Peccadillo Pictures Picks Up Thriller “B&B" After Best LGBT Film Win


Suspense thriller B&B, written and directed by BAFTA-nominated Joe Ahearne (Trance, The Replacement, Doctor Who) and produced by Jayne Chard (Dartmoor KillingI’ll Tell You), won Best LGBT Film at the London Independent Film Festival. 

Distributor Peccadillo Pictures picked up the UK and Ireland rights after its World Premiere at the festival. International rights are still available.
Marc and Fred went to war when they were refused a double bed at a remote Christian guest house. They won in court and now they're back to claim their conjugal rights. Triumph turns to terror when a Russian neo-Nazi checks in.


“I wanted to do a thriller in the Hitchcock vein but with gay characters making the wrong choices and getting terrified out of their wits. B&B goes beyond the gay relationship movie. It’s a thriller with a married couple at the centre, something I haven’t seen before,”says writer/director Joe Ahearne.

“B&B is a very different kind of gay film and a brutally funny thriller,” adds producer Jayne Chard.


 The couple is played by Tom Bateman (Kenneth Branagh’s Murder On The Orient Express, Amy Schumer's Snatched) and Sean Teale (Bryan Singer's Gifted, Ben Affleck's Incorporated), and the B&B owner is played by Paul McGann (Withnail & IDoctor Who).
B&B has just played in competition at the ECU Independent Film Festival in Paris and is also playing in competition at the MIFO LGBT Festival in Miami, OUT Film CT in Connecticut and a number of other festivals.
B&B is a Hummingbird Films production funded by Creative England, Film Cymru, and Pont Neuf Productions. Director of Photography Nick Dance; Production Designer Iain Andrews; Editor Graham Walker; Music Dan Jones and Simon Birch; Executive Producers Jon Finn, Richard Holmes, Ricky Margolis, Simon Graham-Clare, Hannah Thomas; Co-Producer Isabelle Georgeaux.

Crowd Funding Kicks Off For "The Monster Of Dread End"

A crowd funding campaign has kicked off for a pitch package to gain funding support for monster movie "The Monster Of Dread End". The feature is an adaptation to the classic comic of the same name, written by Ed Robbins for Dell Comics’ Ghost Stories #1 in 1962 and has been described as, “Utterly terrifying! The stuff of nightmares.” The campaign is taking place over on Kickstarter.


Long empty of human life, the dark, decaying tenements of Dread End stare silently across at each other as though still frozen in horror at the memory of the frightful scenes they alone had been witness to…
It’s 1962. Time was when Dread End, then known as Hawthorn Place, was a busy, noisy, happy street that echoed the sound of children’s laughter. Then early one morning the first one was found. It was a balled-up thing, like an empty wrapper thrown carelessly aside, but somehow still recognizable as having been human…
After dark no one ever dared venture into even the outer fringes of this no-man’s land, let alone the very center of it.
Until… tonight.

Though only seven when his little sister became the first victim of the Dread End monster, Jimmy White resolved that if the police didn’t find her killer, some day he would. Now, at the age of 15, Jimmy feels he is old enough to ferret the monster out.
Crouched in the shadows of an alley, Jimmy begins his lonely and fearful vigil. Jimmy stands up to stretch… then quickly crouches back into the shadows. He stares, unable to believe his eyes!
