The Barge People

“From the description alone, writer Christopher Lombard was clearly heavily inspired by some of the great horror films of the 70s and 80s, drawing motivation from the likes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes. But what sets Lombard writing apart from the rest of the 80s influenced independent films is his focus on the balance between main character building and crazy levels of blood-soaked violence. The main character in question is Kat, who is played superbly by the incredibly talented Bristol based actress Kate Davies-Speak. Her journey through the film takes her from a quiet, reserved city girl to a strong, vengeful soul whose loss spurs her on to take charge of the situation”. – STARBURST

“Writer Christopher Lombard delivers a script full of brutal set-pieces which Steeds films with considerable gusto. Case in point a duel with machetes, one of which happens to be on a long length of chain”. – VOICES FROM THE BALCONY
