Filmmakers Unleash Terrifying OWLMAN On Unsuspecting Urban Explorers

The Producers Of New Horror Film The Black Gloves  Have Taken The Villain Of Their Film To The Streets To Promote The Project.

The Owlman, who first rose to viral fame in 2014 is a rather unusual figure – an owl-headed man in a Victorian tail-suit, a Slenderman-type stalker usually found lurking in woods and dark corridors. For their latest prank, the filmmakers unleashed the Owlman on visitors to an abandoned hospital in their native Scotland. They returned to the site dozens of times over the course of six months, laying in wait to capture the best reactions with their hidden cameras. The result is a hilarious five minute video, with some deeply traumatized-looking victims, but the producers assure us that everyone featured in the video has recovered well from the experience.

Check it out!


The Black Gloves  tells the story of a psychologist obsessed with the disappearance of his young patient, and the menacing owl-headed figure that plagued her nightmares. His investigations lead him to a reclusive ballerina who, just like his patient, is convinced that she is about to die at the hands of this disturbing entity.

The film stars Spanish horror icon Macarena Gomez, best known for her role as the iconic sea priestess in Stuart Gordon’s Dagon  and her powerhouse performance in Musarañas (Shrew’s Nest ). Also starring are genre legend Nicholas Vince (Hellraiser, Nightbreed ) and Jamie Scott-Gordon (Bonejangles, The Unkindness of Ravens ) and Alexandra Nicole Hulme (Girls, Smash, Glee ).

The film is a co-production between Hex Media and long-time partners Dark Dunes Productions, in association with 3rd Monkey Productions and Lights Out Productions, and is set for release in Autumn 2017.
