NAILS

By | Blog, Film | No Comments
The brilliant and twisted minds behind horror favourites The Hallow, Let Us Prey and Wake Wood bring us a new addition to their creepy catalogue of horror, feature film NAILS. Once again exploiting the fears and paranoia of modern society and terrifyingly bringing them to life. It’s sure to be a great addition to the genre.
Written and directed by Denis Bartok and produced by Brendan McCarthy and John McDonnell of Ireland’s Fantastic Films, it will have its world premier as part of The Audi Dublin Film Festival on the 20th of February.
The film centers on a happily married track coach and mother, Dana Milgrom, Shauna MacDonald from The Descent, who’s survived a near-death car accident only to find herself paralyzed and trapped inside her own body. Forced to communicate via an artificial voice program and hooked to a breathing machine, she becomes convinced that a terrifying presence called ‘Nails’ exists inside her hospital room. No one believes her—not even her own husband and doctors, who think she’s experiencing a mental breakdown.
Kaleidoscope Film Distribution will release NAILS in theaters and on VOD/SVOD in the UK and Ireland this year, exact dates to be announced.
All of the sound post production was completed here in Egg by our team. With Aza Hand designing the sound and Patrick Drummond over seeing it all. We also looked after the rushes ingest, Online editing and delivery.

In this fly-on-the-wall series, cameras spend a year with the residents of one of Ireland’s most notorious areas, Jobstown in Tallaght. For many years the area has struggled with high-unemployment, antisocial behaviour and crime. Yet, despite these challenges, most are proud to call Jobstown home. In this ambitious, observational 4 part documentary series, cameras follow local residents as they live out their everyday lives. Stories of hope and despair, triumph and disappointment, and the drama of everyday life unfold.
In the first episode airing on TV3 9pm Thursday 12th of January, we find out how a rare blood condition meant mixed martial artist Paddy Holohan had to give up his career – only for a new opportunity to arise that he could not refuse.
It’s a delight to have director Matt Leigh back in Egg and a pleasure to work with Jamie Dalton from Motive Television who produced this fascinating series. We completed all of the sound post production.
