Back to Bray for Supernatural Thrills

Back to Bray for supernatural thrills

Down at the Bray Studios near Windsor, and once the home of those marvellous Hammer horror movies, more dark deeds have been taking place.

That Hammer type of horror movie has given way to supernatural thriller such as The Legacy which was recently filmed at the studio. It brought two American stars over here to make it, Katharine Ross and Sam Elliott. Katharine made her name in such movies as The Graduate and Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid. Sam Elliott made a big impact in a movie called Lifeguard and was the star of the mini-series Once an Eagle on TV.

“We saw Sam in Lifeguard,” said producer David Foster,” my partner Laurence Turman and myself agreed that this was the first time in a good long while that a big, good-looking actor had turned up. We were impressed .”

Richard Marquand the director, said: “This is a modern story of the real world which is why the events that take place are so frightening. I rarely see movies like this myself, they scare the living daylights out of me!

“For somebody interested in the craft of filmmaking, this picture is a marvellous one to do. It’s very stretching as we’re using all the possible special effects that can be used.”

Extensive location filming has taken place in London and the surrounding countryside.
