Jinga’s cannibal horror 'Sawney' sells to Grindstone for North AmericaGrindstone Group have acquired all North American rights to Ricky Wood Jnr’s Scottish horror Sawney: Flesh of Man starring David Hayman as legendary cannibal Sawney Bean who abducts unholy souls for his communion of flesh. His insane family of inbred killers drag their victims to the hills where they are fed to a chained mutant.
Flesh Of Man is a contemporary spin on the 15th century legend of Sawney Bean, the head of a 48-member clan who were responsible for the murder and cannibalization of over 1000 people.
Said Jinga’s Julian Richards. “It’s possible this legend influenced Wes Craven’s The Hill’s Have Eyes as well as Jack Ketchum’s Off Season and Offspring, but Sawney: Flesh of Man is the closest we have got to a “faithful” account”.
