Alan Moore's THE SHOW opens digitally from October 18th (NEWS)
Altitude are proud to announce the release of THE SHOW, a truly unique wonderfully surreal mystery from the mind of the legendary Alan Moore (Jerusalem) released on altitude.film and other digital platforms from October 18th.
Starring Tom Burke (C.B. Strike) and The Serpent’s Ellie Bamber, and featuring a rare on screen appearance from Moore himself, THE SHOW is the feature length directing debut of award-winning photographer Mitch Jenkins (Showpieces) and is an extraordinary mix of the dreamworld visions of Terry Gilliam with The League of Gentlemen.
Set in an extraordinary alternative universe, with dazzling and delirious visuals, and a brilliantly enigmatic performance from Burke, THE SHOW features Moore’s characteristic mischievous humour (including a soap opera based on philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein), eccentric characters and delightfully labyrinthine plotting. It’s a cinematic experience you won’t want to miss, and won’t soon forget!
SYNOPSIS: A frighteningly focussed man of many talents, passports, and identities, arrives in Northampton - a strange and haunted town in the heart of England. On a mission to locate a stolen artefact for his menacing client, Fletcher finds himself entangled in a twilight world populated with vampires, sleeping beauties, Voodoo gangsters, noir private eyes, and masked avengers. He quickly sinks into a bizarre and delirious black hole, that is hidden just beneath the surface of this seemingly quiet town. Soon enough Fletcher discovers that dreams and reality have been blurred and there might no longer be a real world to go back to-Welcome to The Show.
THE SHOW IS RELEASED ON ALTITUDE.FILM AND OTHER DIGITAL PLATFORMS ON 18TH OCTOBER
