Fighting the Demons
Principal photography has begun in Wellington on World War II horror film, The Devil’s Rock, award-winning director Paul Campion’s debut feature film. Academy Award-winning Weta Workshop (Avatar, District 9, Lord of the Rings, King Kong) will create the film’s physical effects. The Devil’s Rock is set in the Channel Islands on the eve of D-Day. Two New Zealand commandos, sent to destroy German gun emplacements to distract Hitler’s forces away from Normandy, discover a Nazi occult plot to unleash demonic forces to win the war. The cast includes Craig Hall, Matthew Sunderland, Gina Varela and Karl Drinkwater. Campion began his career as a freelance illustrator working in the advertising and publishing industry.
