A HORROR movie about a legendary witch has been named best drama at a prestigious film festival.
Molly Crows, based on Burslem witch Molly Leigh who died in 1746, scooped the award at the Portobello Film Festival in London.
The low-budget movie was shot by 38-year-old Keelebased director Ray Wilkes at different locations including Sandon Hall, near Stone, and Peckforton Castle.
It tells the story of a troubled seven-year-old girl who summons the spirit of a witch. The film features sisters Lexi and Natasha Tordoff, aged 14 and nine, from Wolstanton, who won their parts in Molly Crows after answering an internet advert. It had its debut at the festival last month.
