Six friends’ weekend in the country turns into a bone-crunching nightmare in GNAW, a new British thriller that will make you think twice about sitting down to dinner with strangers. The shocker makes its U.S. premiere on Dark Sky Films DVD on October 13, 2009 and we’ve got your exclusive first look at the trailer for the shocker that can be viewed beyond the break.
Six twenty-something friends go on a weekend break to the English countryside and find a seemingly perfect place to rest and relax: Blackstock Farm, a charming and idyllic farmhouse with nothing and no one for miles around. Making things even better, there’s also kindly host Mrs. Obadiah, who lovingly prepares mouthwatering meals for her young visitors.
But trouble is brewing in that country kitchen for the vacationers. Lorrie receives a gift from a secret admirer, and when Jill goes searching the vast grounds for her missing boyfriend, she happens upon a strange building in the forest where sinister things are afoot. Soon, the carefree kids come to the realization that a really big meal is planned – and they’re the main course.
GNAW marks the accomplished directing debut of Gregory Mandry and features a cast of up-and-comers, including Sara Dylan, Gary Faulkner, Rachel Mitchem, Hiram Bleetman, Nigel Croft-Adams, Oliver Squires, Julian Vandoorne, Jennifer Wren and Carrie Cohen.
The film was a fan favorite at London’s 2008 Frightfest, Dublin’s 2008 Horrorthon and, in 2009, Portugal’s prestigious Fantasporto festival. “GNAW scores a direct hit on the core horror audience,” raved Jat Slater of Darkside.
