All You Need Is Death

Feature Film

1185 Films and Witchman Films

An ancient Irish ballad releases a terrible curse

We’ve had the incredible pleasure to co-produce the spine-tingling horror film All You Need Is Death, directed by our talented friend Paul Duane. This chilling masterpiece has been acquired by the renowned XYZ Films.

We’ve not only been a part of this eerie tale from the beginning, but have also dedicated our time and expertise to post-production. From mind-bending VFX to the meticulous art of colour grading, our team, led by head colourist Nick Franco and head of VFX Simon Wilkinson, made sure we delivered an unforgettable cinematic experience.

The movie features Simone Collins, Charlie Maher, Nigel O’Neill and Catherine Siggins, as well as cameos by the iconic Olwen Fouéré (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Northman) and Barry Gleeson (brother of Oscar nominee Brendan Gleeson, in his first film role).

Witchman Films

Out of this collaboration came another: Witchman Films is a new production company set up by Paul Duane and 1185 Films to make genre films in Ireland and the UK.

In 2023, audiences are fragmenting worldwide – there’s no such thing as a sure thing anymore. But we feel that strong, original and surprising genre films, made with ambition and skill, will never go out of fashion. While big-budget, middle-of-the-road dramas crash and burn without finding an audience, smaller, more niche films are finding success via today's multitude of streaming platforms and the online word-of-mouth that passes through the genre film community.
