Australian writer/director Tom Conyers makes his feature film debut with The Caretaker, an intelligent you-watch-my-back-and-I-won’t-stake-yours vampire thriller starring Aussie stage actress Anna Kate Burgess (”Time Warp: A Rocky Horror Tribute Show”).
The film’s synopsis reads:
As a wave of vampirism sweeps the world, Annie and Guy, who have taken a road trip in a last-ditch attempt to save their relationship, find themselves part of a discordant group holed up in a decrepit country mansion.
In an uneasy pact, the group agrees to protect vampire Ford Grainger during daylight hours. In return, he guarantees their safety from marauding vampires at night.
Manipulation, deceit and betrayal within the group threaten the fragile agreement, leading to a terrifying and heart-rending showdown.
The Caretaker costars newcomer Clint Dowdell, Colin MacPherson (Parallels) and Lee Mason (Parallels). No word on a release date yet, but there is a website to stay informed and peep some cool BTS stuff.
