Okay, I give up! A giant owl monster already has me wanting to see Lord of Tears, no matter what! What could be more original than a real giant owl or a man in a giant owl costume killing people? Nothing much, whichever it is! Yes, I’ve already coughed up an owl pellet just writing about it! What’s the story? All we know so far at Space Jockey Reviews is what’s on the movie’s official website–and that’s quite a lot!
“Lord of Tears tells the story of James Findlay, a school teacher tortured by childhood memories of a strange and unsettling entity – a figure dressed like a Victorian gentleman but with the head of an Owl, and elongated limbs with sharp claws.
It took the boy years to recover from his vision, years of forgetting before he could resume a normal life into adulthood. He might never have remembered had it not been for the death of his mother… the nightmares… the return of that familiar, watching presence.
As James faces a descent into madness, his only hope to fight his tormentor, to banish the evil that haunts him, is to return to his childhood home. He travels to the lonely mansion in the Scottish Highlands, a place notorious for its tragic and disturbing history. There, he must uncover, once and for all, the chilling truth behind the immortal stalker.”

With a plot like that (and a trailer like the one below) we’re not surprised that Lord of Tears is already an official selection at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival–a huge genre film event that’s one of the biggest (if not the biggest) in Europe. The festival will pitch Lord of Tears up against all the best it has to offer, from both studios and other independent filmmakers. What’s better is that Lord of Tears is also now an official selection of Monsterpalooza and the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival! Yes, even Cthulhu is proud of this achievement!
Lord of Tears has also won praise from fellow filmmakers including Stephen Susco (writer of the American Grudge remakes) and William Malone (director of the House on Haunted Hill remake and designer of the original Michael Myers mask!), and actor and author Ian Rankin.
Lord of Tears, from Dark Dunes Productions and Hex Media, is directed, produced, and edited by Lawrie Brewster, written by Sarah Daly, starring Alexandra Hulme, Euan Douglas, Jamie Scott Gordon, and David Schofield as Owl Man. And a big thanks to Sultan Saeed Al Darmaki for supporting such new frontiers in horror! For a complete list of the cast, crew and all producers, check out Lord of Tears on IMDb.
Space Jockey Reviews will certainly keep its radar on, with open channels to the film’s director Lawrie Brewster, for all the latest! Stay tuned!
In the meantime, check out the screenshots, trailer, and owlman video (yes you have to see that), and the interview with Lawrie Brewster!
Look for a review of Lord of Tears, coming soon to Space Jockey Reviews!
And now for a creepy video of the Owlman terrorizing video chatters on Chat Roulette. Yes, beware of this nighttime fowl of fear as you surf the web, whenever and wherever you are–as no place seems safe! As Lawrie Brewster says himself, “You have to see this to believe it!” We agree! 😀
Next, Lawrie Brewster–the man behind this avian tale of terror–discusses the future for Hex Media, Lord of Tears and their co-production partners, Dark Dunes Productions. Lord of Tears is available for purchase at www.lordoftears.com!
