Entertainment One recently picked up US and Canadian rights to New Zealand WWII horror film The Devil’s Rock, directed and co-written by Paul Campion. With a July 8 release planned in Canada, the film will have its premiere at next month’s Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal. Check out a new pic below, with the official trailer inside.
“The horror pic is set in the Channel Islands on the eve of D-Day where two Kiwi Commandos are sent to destroy German gun emplacements in order to distract Hitler’s forces away from Normandy. They discover a Nazi occult plot to unleash demonic forces to win the war.”
“The Devil’s Rock , June 5, 1944. A crack kiwi commando team, Captain Ben Grogan and Sergeant Joseph Tane, are sent on a top secret mission to destroy gun emplacements inside German occupied territory in the Channel Islands on the eve of D-Day.
They are diverted off their landing point by strong currents, but eventually find themselves near the entrance of an ominous German bunker.
After placing explosives on the gun turret, they surprise and kill a German soldier fleeing from the bunker pleading for help. The screams of a woman follow from inside and Grogan makes the decision to go on an unauthorised rescue mission, leaving Tane behind.
Once inside, Grogan encounters more than he bargained for – a scene of unworldly carnage, where only a mysterious Nazi officer and a beautiful but Devilish captive remain alive…
