"Lord of Tears tells the story of James Findlay, a school teacher tortured by childhood memories of a strange and unsettling entity – a long-limbed figure in a Victorian tail suit... with the head of an owl.
As James faces a descent into madness, his only hope to fight his tormentor and banish the evil that haunts him, is to return to his childhood home. He travels to the lonely mansion in the Scottish Highlands, a place notorious for its tragic and disturbing history. There, he must uncover, once and for all, the chilling truth behind the immortal stalker.
Director Lawrie Brewster has just released a brand new Special Edition of the film, boasting a complete re-edit and brand new sound design.
According to Lawrie “We've produced a couple more films now since the original Lord of Tears, and we wanted to apply the lessons we've learned to our debut feature. I felt that Lord of Tears deserved a revisit, and I believe that with this new Special Edition, we've created the best possible version of the film. Now we're just eager to share it with fans of the genre.”
