Actors for Indie Horror Feature Film 'Hillwalkers'

Dublin Region, Ireland
Listed by View details

Hillwalkers is a horror / thriller set in a remote Irish landscape. It tells the story of five city friends who journey to a remote location for a sponsored hill walk.

When one of the team is injured, they opt to take a short cut back to civilization. This leads them to trespass onto private property. When an altercation with the landowner turns violent, a desperate battle for survival ensues.

The cast is quite contained. Five city people (twenties / early thirties), and three farm residents. It's a culture clash story with undertones of black comedy.

The locations are predominately outdoors in the Dublin mountains region.

BEN. Ben (27), is typical of a lot of over confident guys his age. He’s outwardly good looking and talks in a pithy / shallow / superficial sort of way trying to impress others. When things become really difficult for the group, his initial efforts to be a man are thwarted by the psychotic nature of the situation they find themselves.

Ray (38), is married to Miriam. Although he’s older and independently successful, he’s more of a back-seat driver when it comes to the relationship. It’s clear that he loves Miriam, and would do anything for her. At the time that we meet both of them, the big conversation in their lives is whether or not to have a baby. This is a source of tension for them as Ray cannot father a child. Ultimately, Ray does something incredibly brave to save his wife.

STEPHEN, (30’s). “Steevy,” as he called throughout the story is the real villain of the film. He’s mentally ill but whip smart. He has a facial tic and was probably bullied a lot growing up.
