Horror movie fans are in for a scare with the launch of Surviving Evil in cinemas from 10th July. The movie, produced  by Focus Films (UK) and Zing Productions (SA) and directed by Terence Daw (UK), stars Billy Zane (Titanic), Christina Cole (Miss Pettigrew lives for a day), Natalie Jackson Mendoza (The Descent) and famous Filipino actor Joel TorreColin Moss (World Unseen) and Louise Barnes (Egoli) have supporting lead roles, a coup for the South Africans, considering that open castings were held in London and South Africa. 

“An overseas production usually imports its key cast, leaving very few meaty roles for local actors” agrees Colin. “Louise and I were seriously lucky to get supporting lead roles in a film with a mostly international cast. It has been a great work experience.”

The story line follows the British production crew of a survival reality show. Billy Zane stars as Sebastian ‘Seb’ Beazley, a Bear Grylls type character, with Colin Moss in the role of the jaded British cameraman, Dexter Simms. They arrive on an unexplored and uninhabited island in the Philippines, to film a new series, but soon discover that they are not alone. The crew, led by Rachel (Louise Barnes) are planning to shoot ‘Seb’ Beazley’s survival techniques, when they encounter a bloody massacre and the terrifying mythological creatures, Aswang.

“The Aswang exist in Filipino folklore, rather like the Tokoloshe in South African folklore” said Colin.  “This lends a certain reality anchor to the film. I think horror fans will like it. ”

In the online magazine, Media Update, Billy Zane said he enjoyed working with Colin, describing him as “dedicated and an immensely talented and wonderful actor.”

Surviving Evil was shot in Durban and the North and South Coasts of KZN, which gave Colin the opportunity to introduce the international cast to Durban curry, a production highlight, from all accounts!

On the experience of working with an international cast, Colin says “They were a pretty down to earth bunch of people and we had a lot of fun together in Durban. It was also nice to get a sense of the Hollywood way of doing things. There are a few differences one notices – like, we take ourselves far too seriously in South Africa.”

Having experienced Italian (Ex), British (World Unseen and Surviving Evil) and  Bollywood (Season’s Greetings) movie productions in the past year, is Colin taking himself seriously?

“Not particularly” he says. “I am just happy to be part of a film that doesn’t suck.”
