INNER GHOSTS - Some behind the scenes special effects.

Last week saw my inaugural INNER GHOST article , where I was rather pleased to announce that The Fifth Dimension is to be the UK representative for this brand new Independent horror film from Portugal. 

As well as providing a few tit bits of information about plot I mentioned that one of the perks of being the ambassador type person was that I would be given access to some exclusive pictures to pass on the readers. 

So when the films producer, Paulo Leitem, sent me a quick message earlier today suggesting that he send me the first of some exclusive images, I wasn't really too sure what to expect.

I must admit for some reason I didn't expect was the first photo that I looked at seemed to resemble a slice of human skin. However this (as you can see for yourself in the picture) is just what it is, albeit a piece of synthetic skin that the film makers have developed for some scenes. Something tells me that these particular scenes may not be for the front-hearted.......thank god! 

The rest of the sneak preview exclusive type pictures that I received related to two of the featured actors from INNER GHOSTS. So being the type of sharing caring individual that I am , I thought that it would therefore provide a good opportunity to begin introducing you to some of the names that will grace this film.


CELIA WILLIAMS is a British actress born and brought up in England. She studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama before spending two years living in Brazil, since when she has been living and working in Lisbon. She performs in English and Portuguese, and also, once, in French. Her work has taken her very often to the UK, to London and to Edinburgh, to places all over Portugal from Bragança in the north, to the Algarve in the south, to Madeira in the Atlantic, and also to India. She has performed in a variety of genres including tragedy, drama, mystery, comedy, musicals, opera, radio, television series and feature films. Among many major roles on stage are Jean Cocteau's THE HUMAN VOICE in London's West End, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK, DON'T WALK ABOUT WITH NOTHING ON, and BE MY BABY, also in London; Paulina in DEATH & THE MAIDEN, Elizabeth I in MARY STUART, Nora in A DOLL'S HOUSE, Stephanie in DUET FOR ONE, Gertrude in HAMLET and Judith Bliss in HAY FEVER IN LISBON.

Celia's work in Portuguese includes various roles in TV soaps and series, for example EQUADOR and UMA FAMÍLIA AÇOREANA, O ÚLTIMO DOS MARIALVAS, APANHADOS NO DIVÃ and AUTO DA BARCA DO INFERNO for the stage, and the films PASSAGEM POR LISBOA and A MORTE DE CARLOS GARDEL. Her first venture into horror was ten years ago when she played the protagonist in MRS. DEVENPORT'S THROAT, a short film, part of a series written and produced by horror icon David McGillivray. She is now excited, and a little afraid, to take on the role of Helen in INNER GHOSTS.

The woman's head in the picture to the right is a realistic replica of actress Celia Williams. Now I may not be the brightest spark on the planet but judging from the state of the replica I'm pretty sure that poor old Celia's character who will be quite possibly enduring some serious violence.

This seems to tie in nicely of the premise of the story that I'm allowed to share with you. This battle between mother and a Demon, essentially two longtime enemies who are about to meet for the last time.

Celia plays Helen - a woman who is conducting psychological tests on ghosts in an attempt to develop a revolutionary therapy for patients in the  terminal stage of Alzheimers . What Helen does not know is that a Demon who has been looking for her has now found a way to reach her. And it wants something only she can give him.

The story will get deliciously violent as the Helen and the Demon play cat and mouse in an old apartment. This picture seems to suggest very very violent!

Also included is a photo of Teresa Sousa (Wardrobe) doing wardrobe tests on actress Celia Williams.

Celia is looking slightly worried in this photo, methinks.  It may have something to do with the replica of her head that we've just seen.

Don't worry Celia, its only a demon you're facing. What could possibly go wrong?


PHIL TOWN was born in Windsor, in the South-East of England, and has been living in Lisbon since 1990. He began acting in the mid-1980s in amateur reviews, and since being in Lisbon he has appeared in a number of plays produced by the theatre group The Lisbon Players, notably as Lennie Small in Steinbeck's OF MICE AND MEN, Dr Rank in Ibsen's A DOLL'S HOUSE, Tubal and Old Gobbo in Shakespeare's THE MERCHANT OF VENICE, and Luka in Chekhov's THE BEAR. He is also a voiceover artist and provided the English voiceover for the 1989 Brazilian short ILHA DAS FLORES, which won a Silver Bear at Berlin.

Asked about why he acts, he says: "For the buzz of interpreting words on the page and making them into a believable character, and to push the limits of my experience – both technically as an actor and psychologically/ emotionally as a person. And to enjoy the response from the audience – when it's a positive one, naturally." As for his beliefs, he says he is neither religious nor spiritual. So what comes after life? "Probably oblivion, but we'll see..."

On INNER GHOSTS, Phil will play Steinman, a man who thinks he is destined for greatness...

The final picture sent to me is of a man's head which is a realistic replica of actor Phil Town. Now I have it on good authority that Phil's character will also be the victim of lots of bad and rather nasty violent happenings.

While I'm sure that Phil is a very nice man, I must admit that I'm rather looking forward to seeing what particular violent delights the film has in store for him and the rest of the cast. Sorry Phil!
