Film4’s FrightFest was the perfect venue for the UK Premiere of The Holding and Premiere Scene’s Claire & Anthony Bueno were only too happy to attend. Join us as we talk to the cast and crew Director Susan Jacobson, Producers Alex Boden & George Mizen, Writer James Dormer, Producer/Actor Terry Stone, Actresses Maisie Lloyd and Kierston Wareing about the pleasure of filming in Derbyshire, being a part of such a strong script and working with such a strong director.
The Holding Review
Susan Jacobson makes her directorial in the suspenseful thriller The Holding. It’s certainly refreshing and encouraging to see a woman at the helm and what is also encouraging is to see a British Indi film without hoody insight and miles away from the gritty urban jungle.
Instead we see our protagonists, a mother (Kierston Wareing) and her two daughters living in the countryside enduring the daily struggle not to lose their small holding and more importantly their home.
When a stranger Aden played by Vincent Regan appears in an hour of need could he be the angel that’s the answer to their prayers? Or the demon emerging from a lair?
The first scene has great impact and the clever plot keeps the suspense between a potential ghost story or something far more sinister.
Vincent Regan steals the show and this was a perfect script that allowed him to clearly display the versatility of his acting ability.
The Holding is definately worth a watch!
