Lockdown Hauntings Drops TrailerBy RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies
I was doing a little search for Tony Todd. I was looking for new information on Tales from the Hood 3. Instead of the newest scoop from the Hood, I found a new film that somehow flew under my radar. The Lockdown Hauntings. While coronavirus has wreaked havoc on so many movies, some ingenious directors have taken advantage of the unusual situation. Howard J. Ford is one such director. His latest feature, The Lockdown Hauntings, puts this reality on full display. All of the filmings took place in lockdown and without any crewmembers involved. If that doesn’t pique your interest, then Candyman Tony Todd should.
Ford has given us two very different and rather refreshing zombie films in The Dead 1 and 2. Which if you have not seen is on Tubi now free to stream. His latest creation The Lockdown Hauntings is a supernatural serial killer movie. And no, Tony Todd doesn’t occupy the diabolical role in this outing, but his presence still stands out in the film.
The synopsis is as follows: With the streets now empty, it isn’t just nature that is taking advantage of this unprecedented global disaster. Spirits are freer than ever before and the spirit of a notorious serial killer, AKA The Locksmith, is back from the dead and he has even more potential victims. Can self-isolating detective George Parker (Angela Dixon) with the guidance of paranormal expert Jordan Myers (Tony Todd), prevent more young women from becoming victims of The Lockdown Hauntings?
Unlike Ford’s other films, months of planning didn’t go into The Lockdown Hauntings. In fact, Ford was supposed to be filming another movie when everything got put on hold due to the coronavirus. Then an idea popped into his head: an invisible killer we could do nothing to stop like COVID-19. He posted on social media for actors interested in starring in the movie by filming in their own homes. Production got underway just one week later. That means we fans get to see Tony Todd acting from his own home. Or wherever his laptop is set up. Either way, it is cool.
Now the bad news, we have some time before we get to see The Lockdown Hauntings. The release will coincide with the one-year anniversary of the UK going on lockdown on March 16. You can follow the film on Facebook for updates up until that point because we all know nothing is set in stone during the pandemic.
