Could Jamaica Be the New Hollywood of the Caribbean?
We’ve all heard the stories of Bloody Mary and the Boogie Man, but have you heard of Annie Palmer, a witch who haunts the old Rose Hall plantation in Jamaica?
Global Renaissance Entertainment Group, a marketing and film production company, hopes to make Annie Palmer a household name to scare people for years to come. The forthcoming movie, “Annie Palmer – The White Witch of Rose Hall,” is part of a major push for Jamaica to become a new film industry hot spot.
Just in time for Halloween, I traveled to Montego Bay to experience the haunted Rose Hall firsthand and talk with the team about what they hope to bring to the island in terms of money, filming — and tourism.
