Something is baying for blood on the moors but two documentary makers planning to snare a legendary moorland beast are not prepared for what they are about to discover as XMOOR explodes onto screens on August 25, 2014 at this year’s FILM4 FrightFest.
With their sights set on a £25,000 reward promoted by a local newspaper, American documentary makers Georgia and Matt head to Exmoor in North Devon to film the fabled beast supposedly slinking through the remote terrain. Setting up a forest camp with an experienced tracker harbouring his own dark secrets, the trio fix 42 cameras to the trees and rocks, linked back to a computer nerve centre where nothing should go unnoticed as they take turns to keep watch throughout the night. But then they discover some putrefying body parts all neatly tied up. And some more… And then some more… Before long, they realise they are in the lair of a beast alright, but not one of the four-legged variety. They have discovered a serial killer’s playground and soon they become his most wanted prey.
Written and directed by indie favourite Luke Hyams, XMOOR stars MELIA KREILING (Guardians Of The Galaxy, TV’s The Borgias), NICK BLOOD (TV’s The Bletchley Circle and Trollied) and MARK BONNAR (TV’s Psychoville and Shetland).
