A psychological thriller by a Huddersfield film company is bidding for the big screen.

Flockton Moor-based film producers, MGA Ltd, are set to release their debut feature film, Wandering Rose.

Filming over this summer, scenes have been shot largely in the Scottish Highlands and Flockton Moor.

And it is now hoped the film will be featured at film festivals around the world and picked up for distribution in cinemas.

The movie is the brainchild of former Flockton resident Corrie Greenop, who has written, filmed and directed it.

Shot for just £20,000, it follows a young couple looking to rekindle a damaged relationship.

They retreat to the remote Scottish Highlands in a camper van but they are soon haunted by their past, their surroundings and each other.

The film has used emerging British acting talent, while the majority of the production crew are from Huddersfield.

The lead roles are played by Scottish actress Carina Birrell and London’s David Wayman.

The third lead, Cameron Jack, who plays a policeman, has previously starred in a host of Hollywood films including Batman flick Dark Knight Rising, as one of Bane’s henchmen.

Corrie, 26, said he had dreamed up the scary script after he was spooked in the Scottish Highlands a few years ago.

He explained: “I had quite a severe rock climbing accident and I was bedridden for about three months.

“During that time I joined my family on a camper van holiday in the Highlands.

“I was in the van alone one evening and I started to get a bit scared.

“I was alone and I couldn’t move and I thought I can’t do anything if something happens.

“It was really a eerie spot and it hit me that it would be a great location to shoot a horror film.”

Corrie, whose father Mark was one of the founders of now defunct Holmfirth company CragRats, spent two years writing the film.

He has used cash he had been saving up for a house deposit to pay the actors, crew and running costs.

He has one last scene to shoot with Emmerdale star Bhaskar Patel, who plays Rishi Sharma in the Yorkshire based soap, before editing begins.

The film is planned for release in March next year.

Corrie added: “It’s been such an amazing experience, hopefully it will get on a few film festivals all around the world and get some interest from film companies.”
