If the prospect of Halloween leaves you up for a a bit of a fright, a new horror film has just been released in cinemas.

And part of our coastline here in the North east has a starring role in it.

Saint Maud tells the story of a young nurse assigned to look after a retired dancer convalescing in a grand house and how her life unravels when she develops an obsession with her patient.

It was partly filmed on the cliffs and coast in and around Scarborough where 80 townspeople were used as extras for scenes filmed at the seaside town’s South Bay.

Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Reviews of the movie, which has just been released in UK cinemas, have described the film as ‘the horror films of the year’ and ‘promises endless nightmares.’

Maud believes God is communicating with her and becomes convinced she needs to save her soul before she dies.

She’s played by Welsh actress Morfydd Clark whilst Jennifer Ehle, who won a BAFTA TV award for Best Actress for her role Elizabeth Bennet in the 1995 television adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, takes the role of Amanda.

Director Rose Glass has said she chose Scarborough because she always wanted to film something set in an English seaside town and it seemed to have everything she was looking for when she toured the country scouring for a location.

A property in London was used to film scenes inside Amanda’s house but the sea front arcades and alleys in Scarborough were used for exterior shots.

Surrounding cliffs, South Bay Beach and the amusements also feature.
