He soon realizes something is wrong while on the trail of his erstwhile companion.

“We set out to make something different, something that would be a fresh take on the genre, and here instead of the dark being where danger lurks, it’s the light,” said Alleyne.

“We’re delighted to have secured a deal with Anthony and Lee on ‘Sunburn’ for our AFM lineup,” added Moviehouse managing director Gary Phillips. “It’s a smart and unique horror film with universal themes. It’s also got a killer twist.”

Alleyne said the script for “Sunburn 2” is in late-stage development and the search for a director starting this month. “It was always intended that the story would continue, and expand in a deeper and more disturbing way. ‘Sunburn 2’ represents a journey deeper into hell,” he said.

The filmmaker is also working on an adaptation of the graphic novel “Under” with Media Participations Group and Titan Comics.
