Filming of Tales From the Lodge at Seaton Point.

The former farmhouse at Seaton Point was the location for Tales From The Lodge, a comedy horror due out next September, with comedian Johnny Vegas and Mackenzie Crook, star of Pirates of the Caribbean and The Office.

The film, by Hook Pictures, will be a horror-comedy about five university friends, who are pushing 40 and gather for a weekend away at a remote house in England. Their mission is to scatter the ashes of another pal who drowned himself in a lake three years earlier.

Filming at Seaton Point continued into the night - one of the coldest of the year.

While there, they entertain each other with ghost stories and tales of zombies and murders. But unfolding around them is a horror story that is very real.
