You may have seen a video promotional clip for the British horror film THE DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND playing around the web—but the people behind the movie got in touch with Fango to let us know you weren’t supposed to. The clip was a market promo that was not intended for general viewing, and they’re not happy it’s out there.
“It’s frustrating when internal material gets leaked,” PLAYGROUND director Mark McQueen tells us, “because it’s a work in progress and designed for a completely different use than a public trailer—but people who see it on-line don’t know that, and it gives the wrong impression of the film. This sales promo, made externally for industry buyers, was put together before the movie had even finished filming and it’s without visual effects or color grading and uses temporary music. It gives a lot of the story away, more than what you would put in a trailer. There’s a lot more material that will go into the official trailer that hadn’t been shot when that one was edited.”
Adds producer Jonathan Sothcott, “This market reel leaking out has been incredibly irritating. The Internet has nine million people who love kicking everything new, and they’ve just been given unnecesary ammunition. It is doubly frustrating because I know Mark will do an amazing job on the official trailer, which Fango readers should be able to see very soon!”
THE DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND, which we last told you about here, is a very-fast-zombie film that stars Craig Fairbrass, Danny Dyer (pictured above), MyAnna Buring, Jaime Murray, Craig Conway, Lisa McAllister and scriptwriter Bart Ruspoli. It’s one of several upcoming fright features from Black and Blue Films—another of which, the vampire opus DEAD CERT, did have an official trailer released recently, and you can see it below.
