The English-language film brings together Franco-American actress Camille Rowe (Rock’n Roll [+see also:
film profile], I Wish Someone Were Waiting For Me Somewhere [+see also:
film profile]), James Jagger (son of Mick and popular in the TV series Vinyl) and Éric Savin (seen in many roles since his beginnings on the big screen in L.627).
Written by the two directors, the script centres on Tina and Ben, a young American couple specialised in urban exploration, who decide to explore a so-called haunted house that was some time ago drowned under an artificial lake in the middle of the Alps. Led on the scene by a strange old man, they dive to explore the mansion, convinced that this is the perfect material for their next successful video. Sinking into the depths of the lake, they manage to enter the house. But they soon find themselves locked inside this place that will reveal its darkest secrets…
Produced by Clément Miserez and Matthieu Warter for Radar Films, The Deep House is being co-produced by Logical Pictures, Belgian company Umédia, Apollo Films (which will be handling French distribution) and Forecast Pictures. Pre-bought by OCS, the feature is also supported by Screen Flanders, Wallimage and the CNC (via the support for audiovisual creation). Filming took place from 27 January-13 March, and from 15-26 June at Studios Lites (in Vilvoorde, Belgium), in the Occitanie region (in the Raviège and Saint Peyres lakes) from 6-10 July, and at the Bry-sur-Marne Studios from 13-17 July, with Jacques Ballard working as cinematographer. International sales are handled by Pulsar Content.
