Behind the Scenes of The Strangers Outside

behind the scenes of a horror movie

The filming of my novella The Strangers Outside has started. Want to know what's going on behind the scenes? Then get a look at these pictures of the film set in Sint-Katelijne-Waver, Nil-Saint-Vincent, Ophain and Mont-Saint-Guilbert. In the meantime, don't forget to order the book The Strangers Outside from Amazon.

Director Philippe Geus discussing his vision with the rest of the crew.

My cat Avalon was part of the cast of The Strangers Outside. He loved being on the film set and did exactly what he was expected to do. I suppose that being fed his favorite Schesir chicken and apple dinner helped quite a bit. He even had a bottle of water with his name on it. Avalon will soon have his own cartoon series as well.


This is what's left of Avalon after his encounter with the strangers outside.

Just by looking at the pictures, you can tell what a brilliant actor Pierre Lekeux is.

Cinematographer David Taillebuis used Jaume Balaguero's Darkness as a visual inspiration for The Strangers Outside.
