I have a very special announcement on the blog! I’m thrilled to introduce you to an exciting new horror movie, 11TH HOUR CLEANING!
What is 11th Hour Cleaning?
11th Hour Cleaning is an upcoming supernatural film with a very unusual premise. The film tells the story of a group of crime scene cleaners that struggle to escape a murder house after becoming trapped by an ancient Nordic demon that is hell bent on driving them insane. I love the sound of this!
I was thrilled when the writer /director Ty Leisher contacted me with the press release for 11th Hour Cleaning. The film features a lot of mythology and part of the demon is inspired by the Badb, from Irish mythology.
Badb, among with Ana and Macha make up the trilogy of The Morris and or Morrigu. Badb an Irish goddess of war. Her cries were heard at the start of battles and for this reason she is identified with the bean-sidhe or Banshee, a signal of impending death. I find this whole subject fascinating, especially after attending a talk on the subject from Dr. Bernie McCarthy of West Cork College. I can’t wait to see how this plays out in 11th Hour Cleaning!
The Inspiration Behind Eleventh Hour Cleaning
“As a kid, my parents were foreclosed home cleaners until one day, we walked into a house where a murder occurred.” Writer/Director, Ty Leisher said, “Since that day I’ve dreamed of telling this horrific story in the most psychologically twisted way possible.”
