Those in the know recognize the fiend as The Owlman, a villain introduced in Hex Media’s Gothic Noir Lord of Tears. The imposing entity is returning soon in another film: The Owlman: Chapter 2.

From Today’s Press Release:
The latest poster for director Lawrie Brewster‘s Gothic Noir THE OWLMAN: CHAPTER 2 (also known as THE BLACK GLOVES) firmly cements the film’s status as the next installment in his Owlman franchise.
Ahead of the release of the 1940s-set chiller, Hex Studios has also shared a series of portraits, giving fans a glimpse of the film’s cast of characters.
Shot on a vintage film camera, the images capture the dread-filled atmosphere that fans of Hex Studios will instantly recognize.
Written by Sarah Daly, THE OWLMAN: CHAPTER 2 tells the story of a psychologist obsessed with the disappearance of his young patient, and the menacing owl-headed figure that plagued her nightmares. His investigations lead him to a reclusive ballerina who, just like his patient, is convinced that she is about to die at the hands of this disturbing entity.
The film stars Macarena Gómez (SHREW’S NEST, DAGON) and Nicholas Vince (HELLRAISER, NIGHTBREED) as well as Hex Studios favourites Alexandra Nicole Hulme and Jamie Scott-Gordon.
According to Brewster, “the film is a brooding, atmospheric chiller with a dark mystery at its core, filled with twisted revelations and infused with a creeping dread.”
THE OWLMAN: CHAPTER 2 is an international co-production between Hex Studios and Dark Dunes Productions in association with producers Richard Pate and Nick Ford, 3rd Monkey Productions, 7 Toes Productions, Needle’s Eye Productions and Lights Out Productions.
The film is available for pre-order now via Hex Studios’ website https://hexmedia.tv/
