THE STRANGERS: PREY AT NIGHT stalks UK Cinemas on 4th May 2018.

Get ready to witness a fight for survival when Christina Hendricks and Martin Henderson’s family holiday becomes their worst nightmare…

When Cindy (Christina Hendricks) and her husband, Mike (Martin Henderson), take their rebellious teenage daughter Kinsey (Bailee Madison) and son Luke (Lewis Pullman) on a road trip, what began as an ordinary, gripe-filled family excursion soon becomes their worst nightmare come to life.  Upon arrival at a secluded mobile home park, a knock on their trailer door leads to an inescapable night of terror as three masked strangers, with inexplicable deadly intentions, force this fractured family to come together and fight for their lives.

 

Starring: Christina Hendricks (Mad Men, The Neon Demon, Dark Places), Martin Henderson (Everest, Hellbent), Bailee Madison (The Good Witch, Parental Guidance, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark) and Lewis Pullman (Battle of the Sexes)

Director: Johannes Roberts (Forest of the Damned, Roadkill)

 

Can Evrenol’s BASKIN finally arrives on UK Blu-ray 16th April from Severin Films.

A five-man unit of cops on night patrol get more than they bargain for when they arrive at a creepy backwater town in the middle of nowhere after a call comes over the radio for backup.

Entering a derelict building, the seasoned tough guys and their rookie junior, who’s still haunted by a traumatic childhood dream, do the one thing you should never do in this kind of movie: they split up.

They soon realize they’ve stumbled into a monstrous charnel house and descend into an ever-more nightmarish netherworld where grotesque, mind-wrenching horrors await them at every turn.

But things aren’t what they seem in this truly disturbing, outrageously gory, and increasingly surreal film whose unpredictable narrative slippages pull the carpet from under your feet and keep you guessing right up to the final moment. A wildly original film that reconfirms Turkey as the breakout national cinema of the moment.

Based on Evrenol’s terrifying 2013 short of the same name, Baskin offers up a nightmarish compendium of imaginative frights that will leave even seasoned horror-movie fans reeling.

Writers: Can Evrenol, Ercin Sadikoglu, Cem Ozuduru, Ogulcan Eren Akay.
Producers: Can Evrenol, Mete Evrenol, Mehpare Evrenol.
Starring: Gorkem Kasal, Ergun Kuyucu, Mehmet Cerrahoglu, Sabahattin Yakut, Mehmet Fatih Dokgoz, Muharrem Bayrak.

James Wale’s THE OLD DARK HOUSE Released in cinemas NATIONWIDE (UK & Ireland) on 27 April 2018

 

 

New 4K restoration of THE CHILLING LOST CLASSIC from the director of FRANKENSTEIN, THE INVISIBLE MAN & THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN.

Starring: BORIS KARLOFF | CHARLES LAUGHTON | EVA MOORE | GLORIA STUART | MELVYN DOUGLAS |RAYMOND MASSEY.

Frankenstein director Whale turned J.B. Priestley’s novel Benighted into a nerve-jangling tale that became the template for all spooky-house chillers to come. Stranded travellers stumble upon a strange old house, and find themselves at the mercy of a highly eccentric and potentially dangerous family. This atmospheric thriller features an unforgettable post-Frankenstein horror role for Boris Karloff, as the hulking, disfigured butler Morgan. Also starring in early-career roles are Melvin Douglas, Charles Laughton, Raymond Massey and Gloria Stuart of Titanic.

The release in UK & Ireland will be accompanied by a brand new trailer and specially commissioned poster artwork by Graham Humphreys, British illustrator and visual artist best known for producing publicity material for The Evil Dead and The Nightmare on Elm Street series’.
