The Black Gloves

The producers of new horror film The Black Gloves have taken the villain of their film to the streets to promote the project. 

The Black Gloves “come off” when the The Owlman, who first rose to viral fame in 2014 is a rather unusual figure – an owl-headed man in a Victorian tail-suit, a Slenderman-type stalker usually found lurking in woods and dark corridors.

For their latest prank, the filmmakers unleashed the Owlman on visitors to an abandoned hospital in their native Scotland. They returned to the site dozens of times over the course of six months, laying in wait to capture the best reactions with their hidden cameras. The result is a hilarious five minute video, with some deeply traumatized-looking victims, but the producers assure us that everyone featured in the video has recovered well from the experience.

The Owlman original featured in the film Lord of Tears, and since has reached the front page of Reddit several times, and had shout-outs from Slash of Guns & Roses, Alice Cooper and… Kelly Osborne.

The Black Gloves tells the story of a psychologist obsessed with the disappearance of his young patient, and the menacing owl-headed figure that plagued her nightmares. His investigations lead him to a reclusive ballerina who, just like his patient, is convinced that she is about to die at the hands of this disturbing entity.
