It was announced last week that Dark Sky Films, Bloody Disgusting and Dread Central are joining forces to present the U.S. premiere of Hammer Films’ Wake Wood (review), a very Pet Sematary-esque horror thriller that will be open to the public.
This afternoon we got our hands on the first clip from the film that teases the birth of evil. Seriously, this is a pretty great Hammer flick, come join us for the premiere!
If you’d like to catch a theatrical presentation of this pretty great flick tickets are now available for the Thursday, June 16th premiere that will take place @9PM at the famous New Beverly Cinema (7165 West Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90036). An extremely limited amount of tickets are available for purchase here.
There will be a very special appearance and Q&A with director David Keating, and each fan will receive a limited edition poster (maybe you can get it signed?)
Inside you’ll find more details on the film, along with the of the official U.S. trailer.
“The heart-pounding new film from the reborn and revered Hammer Films, WAKE WOOD tells the story of Patrick and Louise Daley (Aiden Gillen and Eva Birthistle), whose 9-year-old daughter, Alice (Ella Connolly), is killed in a horrific dog attack. To escape their grief, the devastated young parents move to the remote rural Irish community of Wake Wood (the movie was shot on location in County Donegal, Ireland). Sensing Patrick and Louise’s loss, the strange people of Wake Wood introduce the couple to a bizarre pagan ritual that will bring Alice back from the grave – for three days only. The Daleys find the idea disturbing and exciting in equal measure, but once they agree to terms with Arthur, the village’s mysterious leader, a far bigger question looms: What will they do when it’s time for Alice to leave them forever?”
Wake Wood will also be available on DVD July 5.
