First Image: “WAKE WOOD” Director’s “CHERRY TREE”


Dark Sky Films previously teamed with Ireland’s Fantastic Films on the undervalued WAKE WOOD, a MONKEY’S PAW-influenced bit of folk horror that I find myself recommending often to those looking for something eerie, something bloody and something a little underseen. Exciting news then that the distributor and production company continue their relationship with the Irish outfit on CHERRY TREE, a new film from WAKE WOOD director David Keating, which doesn’t sound far off from the “careful what you wish for” themes of his previous work. 

Screen Daily reports the conclusion of principal photography on CHERRY TREE, which stars Anna Walton (HELLBOY II, Axelle Carolyn’s SOULMATE), Sam Hazeldine and Naomi Battrick. Produced by Brendan McCarthy, who co-wrote WAKE WOOD, CHERRY TREE tells “the story of a youngster who makes a deal with the leader of a witches’ coven to save her father from a seemingly terminal illness.”
