BARNSLEY locals are being recruited to star as zombies in one local couple’s horror movie.

Damian and Nicola Morter, who live on Jackson Street, Cudworth, have been filming in locations across Barnsley – including a spooky scene in Wombwell Woods – and are filming some final scenes this Saturday (November 12).

The couple run Safehouse Pictures UK, an independent film production company specialising in the horror and thriller genres. They have already made two films and the film they are working on at the moment if the linking piece in the Eschatrilogy.

Nicola said: "We have already had lots of local support and on one of the filming days about 150 people turned up to be zombies. We've had people ranging from 18 to 83. At the end of filming, the 83-year-old came up to me and said it had been one of the best days of his life - you can't beat that can you?"

Filming is only open to over-18s. Anyone wanting to take part needs to arrive at 16a Jackson Street, Cudworth at 4pm on Saturday. Make-up artists will be on hand to Zombie you up and you are advised to wear warm, old clothing (no logos and no bright white.)
