The Turning Wrapped!

Whilst ‘Secrets’ was on tour in Cannes Kemal Yildirim was producing and starring as male lead ‘Dillon’ in ‘The Turning‘, all new zombie horror/action feature film from Director, collaborator and good friend Jason Impey. The film shoot wrapped last weekend and is already in post production! A formidable achievement from the duo producing and directing a feature film in 11 shooting days!!

“The shoot has been amazing! In a few words ‘The Turning’ is… zombies, guns, bullets, gore, forbidden love and not forgetting great action! I’ve really enjoyed being Dillon with his never ending battle against the odds you can’t help but root for the guy as things keep going from bad to worse. I’ve also had the privilege to star alongside UK horror icon Eileen Daly in The Turning who was an absolute pleasure on set! I’m so excited I can’t wait to see the end result!!” Kemal Yildirim.

Eileen Daly the Dark Angel and face of Redemption Films, actress, film producer, writer, model, poet and singer/songwriter. Also a well-known contemporary scream queen starring in numerous cult movies, Kemal’s favourite being Jake West’s ‘Razor Blade Smile’.

More updates on ‘The Turning’ coming soon!!

“Desire leads to murder, murder leads to passion and passion leads to The Turning”
