‘Women Talking’ Star Sheila McCarthy Horror ‘The Voices of Our Mother’ Wraps Shoot (EXCLUSIVE)


Horror film “The Voices of Our Mother,” headlined by Sheila McCarthy (“Women Talking”), has wrapped principal photography.

The film is written and directed by Mark O’Brien, who is also an actor, with his most recent credit being Atom Egoyan’s Toronto and Berlinale selection “Seven Veils.” It  tells the story of a family who is brought together when their matriarch falls ill, only to find that their lineage is connected by more than blood. The film was shot in Hamilton, Ontario.  

The cast also includes Georgina Reilly (“Quantum Leap”), O’Brien, Carolina Bartzcak (“Painkiller”), Alex Ozerov-Meyer (“The Americans”), Anna Ferguson (“Lost Girl”) and Shawn Doyle (“Star Trek: Discovery”).

The film is produced by Canada’s Vortex Productions, a subsidiary of boutique distributor Vortex Media. This marks the second collaboration between O’Brien and Vortex Media who helped to finance and distribute the filmmaker’s Fantasia and Grimmfest-winning feature directorial debut “The Righteous.” Vortex Media owns worldwide rights to the film, which was produced by Justin Rebelo and Christopher Giroux for Vortex Productions. 

“Mark brings a keen actors’ sensibility to the director chair and we are thrilled to be partnering with him again,” said Rebelo, who serves as CEO of Vortex Media. “We’ve had fantastic success with genre productions including ‘Anything for Jackson,’ also starring Sheila McCarthy, proving that audiences love a smart and scary film. They won’t be disappointed with ‘The Voices of Our Mother.’”

O’Brien added: “Working with this incredible cast and crew has been a dream. Vortex has been supportive of this concept from the beginning and the collaboration has been a dream come true. I am so proud to work with this talented group of people and can’t wait to share it with the world.”
