Writer/Director Bryan Coyne’s (Harvard Park and Incarnate) new horror film Utero wrapped principal photography this week in Los Angeles. The entirety of the movie was shot in Los Angeles and was independently financed by Coinopflix. Jonathan Higgins and Jessica Cameron (Truth or Dare) produced the film with former Platinum Studios executive Richard Marincic (Cowboys and Aliens, Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night).
The plot of Utero is as follows: “an agoraphobic unwed mother who finds her psyche unraveling as she becomes convinced that her unborn child is more monster than human.”
Utero is a character-driven story that is structured in a similar fashion of the horror films of yesteryear. Audiences will be in for a treat as the story is original, and not a retread of storylines that is all too common in today’s market.
Director/writer Coyne had this to say about the movie:
“Shooting Utero was a dream come true for me. Like any filmmaking experience it was a grandiose challenge. But the commitment of our crew and cast, a wonderful commune of pure artists, helped me achieve something astoundingly effective. I can’t wait for this film to be seen.”
Upon completing principal photography, Cameron commented:
“I could not be more thrilled with the amazing production that has been Utero. The story, camerawork, and lighting, is all so impressive and fresh. I cannot wait to share this with audiences!”
