From the Director of award-winning and critically acclaimed genre hit’s The Dead and The Dead 2, India, and national film award winner ‘Never Let Go’, comes a heart pounding journey through Lockdown in ‘The Lockdown Hauntings’. Set and shot in the first UK Lockdown due to Coronavirus, this film promises to take audiences back on a journey through Lockdown but this time, with the ghost of a notorious serial killer around every corner!
Tony Todd… As soon as the film starts you hear his mesmerizing voice. Tony Todd could read anything and it just sounds GREAT.
The Lockdown Hauntings was directed by Howard J. Ford. Tony Todd portrays Jordan Myers, and the film opens with Jordan delivering a scary powerful message about quarantine.
Detective George Parker (Angela Dixon) is bringing boxes somewhere. We meet quite a few people who apparently are dealing with something supernatural.
Not all hauntings can be bad but as described in the synopsis of this film, a serial killer ghost doesn’t sound good at all. We meet a few people in this movie.
A mother and daughter concerned about one another. Sarah-Jane Potts portrays the mom and her daughter Nicola is portrayed by Jessica Millson.
Chloe (Tiffany Hannam-Daniels) was out for a run, a quarantine run, she stops to take her mask off and looks around. You could hear a pin drop. It’s scary. Chloe also has a flashback to a traumatic event in her life.
There is an ad or a news report on TV from the lady from the Parapsychology Unit have been receiving more reports in regards to “sensing entities” and paranormal activity. Our mental health is so important. The parapsychology woman wants people to focus on making sure mental health is looked after.
It’s strange because years ago people couldn’t just walk around saying, I have anxiety or obsessive-compulsive disorder or PTSD. It was almost hidden at times, like oh no, don’t talk about that.
Detective George Parker (Angela Dixon) was spit on during an arrest and the man who spit at her tested positive for COVID. Detective Alex Briggs (Justin Hayward) delivers this disturbing information to Detective Parker.
Sammy’s (Sophie Flack) is on zoom or facetime with her boyfriend portrayed by Jamie Langlands Sammy is explaining some of the strange phenomenon that has been happening.
If there is ever a floating knife in front of you, duck and run. I know it’s shocking and yes, I know it’s a movie but I’ve seen some wild stuff in my life so far and I am a believer. But, if you are faced with a floating knife, duck, run, do what you have to do.
There is another tragedy. The Lockdown Hauntings is creepier and different because of COVID. There doesn’t seem to be a way for these people to get away or per The Amityville Horror (1979), “for God’s sake, get out.” There is nowhere for people to go, at least in this movie.
Movies like Poltergeist, Insidious, The Grudge show that there may options to leave. This paranormal entity in The Lockdown Hauntings isn’t giving anyone a break.
The detectives are looking for information and trying to figure everything out. Who or what is killing all these people? Detective Parker decides to call Jordan Myers via zoom. Jordan is having problems of his own.
We meet Jon Campling, he’s portraying a doctor. Jordan Myers gives the Parker some advice and words of wisdom. This entity is brutal. Russell Snow portrays Linden Robbins. Russell plays this character so creepily.
The mask the killer wears looks a tad similar to the Michael Myers mask. This is definitely a scary movie to watch with some popcorn and friends. Jon Campling’s doctor character is helping Detective Parker.
Each person has a story, they tell a tale, a haunted tale but it’s a fascinating movie. Howard J. Ford did a great job with this movie. I would say check out The Lockdown Hauntings.
