Mario Covone, writer of the critically acclaimed Reaper Comics horror series, Video Nasty, has begun shooting his feature film directorial debut, the horror movie OVERTIME.

And here are some of the principle cast on the first day of the shoot on location at a school in Ipswich, Suffolk. From left to right: Jack ClarkPippa HaddowChris Spyrides and Bethany Rumbellow.

The film also stars Heather-Mae CuttsAnna Beer and Gary Baxter.

OVERTIME centres on Nathan (Chris Spyrides), a teacher working late into the night at school, seemingly alone. But a presence is watching him from the shadows. Stalked through the winding corridors and trapped within, a sinister secret holds the key to his survival.

No stranger to political subtext within his work, Covone’s movie, which he has also written, explores the real-world issues of violence in schools, and the dangers of media scaremongering, whilst maintaining a traditional horror backdrop with twists aplenty.
