LOWELL — Evil cast its shadow over Missisquoi Lanes on Saturday as The Luring, a horror film being shot in the Northeast Kingdom, borrowed the location for what is said to be a revealing scene in the movie.
The Luring is written and directed by Christopher Wells, a Long Island native with strong local ties. His father, Roderick Wells, is a well known landscape painter who still lives in the St. Johnsbury area.
Christopher’s 2016 release about his father’s work, Roderick Wells: The Art of Romantic Realism, took home best documentary prizes at both the New York Short Film and Screenplay competition and the New York Film and TV Festival.
Some of his father’s work is also being used in The Luring.
Taken straight from the film’s website (www.theluring.com) The Luring tells the story of a man who returns to the vacation home where a murder took place on his tenth birthday, hoping to resolve a memory gap that has been plaguing him for years. It is a feature length horror film, but Mr. Wells said not to expect a lot of blood and gore. Instead, he said, he aims to produce a psychological thriller with fully developed characters, intelligent dialogue, and subtle foreshadowing.
