The Argus has inspired a children’s film about a big cat.

Nightmare Hunters follows two eleven-year-old friends, Sam (Brenock O’Connor) and Raffi (Toby Murray), who set out on a mission to find a big cat that has escaped.

But it is no ordinary beast, and they are not the only hunters in the forest.

The 42-year-old filmmaker Ewan Gorman – who teaches at the Brighton Film School and lives in Portslade – said: “I’ve made short films before and I really wanted to make a feature film.

“The inspiration was The Argus.

I was reading an article about this big cat – the Beast of Bevendean.

“I thought, ‘What would happen if two boys went out and looked for such a cat?’.

“We had a great turn-out at the screening and the children gave lots of positive feedback.”

This is Mr Gorman’s first feature film, which he has both written and directed with a local cast and crew.

The whole film is shot in Sussex, with scenes in Stanmer Woods, Brighton Marina and the South Downs.

There will be another chance to watch the film on Saturday at Brighton’s Big Screen.
