‘Soulmate’ Opening Cut By British Censors

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 10.27.26 AM

Soda Pictures has shared a deleted opening scene from Soulmate, which is now on home video in the UK. The clip was too much for British censors, who I guess have issues with suicide on screen.

In the film, “Recently widowed Audrey moves to the countryside in a bid to get her life back on track. When she realizes the cottage she’s renting is haunted, she decides to stay and strikes up an odd relationship with the ghost…

Audrey (played by Anna Walton, who also appeared in Carolyn’s short film The Halloween Kid) is a suicidal woman mourning the recent death of her husband. Isolating herself in an old country cottage away from friends and family, she soon develops a relationship with the ghost (Tom Wisdom) haunting the property. What follows is an atypical genre film in which love is not the ultimate cure-all.

Anna Walton (Hellboy 2), Tom Wisdom (300), Nick Brimble (A Knight’s Tale) and Emma Cleasby (Dog Soldiers) star. Writer-director Axelle Carolyn’s feature debut is produced by Claire Otway and is a Neil Marshall (The Descent, Dog Soldiers) presentation for Sterling Pictures.
