Starring Thandie Newton (BESIEGED, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE II, WESTWORLD) and Catherine McCormack (THE LAND GIRLS, 28 WEEKS LATER), LOADED (also known as BLOODY WEEKEND) is the feature debut of Anna Campion. A group of seven young school-leavers decide to take over a rambling old country manse for a few days to shoot a horror video. After a tense day's shooting, the group decides to break the atmosphere with an acid-inspired initiation, whilst they video their secret dreams, fears and paranoias.
