'Crucible of the Vampire' Starring Neil Morrissey, Katie Goldfinch and Florence Cady arrives in cinemas on 1 February 2019

Making its World Premiere at Cannes Film Festival and garnering rave reviews at other major festivals, Iain Ross- McNamee's gothic chiller Crucible of the Vampire is set to arrives in UK cinemas on 1 February 2019, followed by its home entertainment release on 4 February 2019 in dual format DVD and Blu-ray and on digital platforms courtesy of Screenbound Entertainment.

Starring British acting favourite Neil Morrissey (Line of Duty, Men Behaving Badly), alongside rising stars Katie Goldfinch and Florence Cady, this brooding vampire tale gives a strong nod to classic British horror greats and the genre defining Hammer Horror films.

A young museum curator Isabelle (Katie Goldfinch) is sent to look at an ancient artefact, discovered in the basement of a stately home in Shropshire. Welcomed into the sprawling manor house by a seemingly hospitable family; Karl (Larry Rew), his wife Evelyn (Babette Barat) and their beautiful daughter Scarlet (Florence Cady), but all is not what it seems, as a dark and terrifying secret hangs over them.

When Isabelle discovers the truth within the mansion's foreboding walls, can she escape the clutches of its malevolent occupants? This immortal tale, which moves from the English Civil War to the present day, is smart, stylish, sexy and as sharp as vampire's teeth.

'Such an engaging story that is both broodingly ethereal, visually eloquent and thoroughly enjoyable'

Starburst

'There's something of a retro Golden Age of Brit horror kick to Crucible of the Vampire... a joyous nostalgia trip'

Adrian Dunbar stars in 'Blood' a gripping new psychological TV drama - on DVD 3 December

Line of Duty favourite Adrian Dunbar returns to our TV screens in a brand new darker than dark drama, Blood, which arrives on DVD this December following its run on Channel 5.

This tense psychological series sees Unforgotten's Carolina Main in a stand out turn as Cat Hogan, an estranged daughter who must return to the family home, in rural Ireland, following the sudden, seemingly accidental death of her mother.

Made to feel like an outsider who can't be trusted, by her controlling father, Jim Hogan (Dunbar - Ashes to Ashes, Broken) a local GP, her brother Michael (Diarmuid Noyes - Borgia, The Tudors) and sister Fiona (Grainne Keenan - Titanic, Black Mirror), Cat is thrown back into the fractured family dynamic she's spent the past 10 years trying to escape.

When demons from Cat's past start to plague her, she begins to question how her mother died and whether her father is guilty of murder.

Released in its original six-part format, Blood, written by Sophie Petzal (Riviera, Medici: Masters of Florence, Wolfblood), will be released on DVD on 3 December 2018.

This gripping, brooding drama will keep you guessing... Who has Blood on their hands?

'A dark, addictive and unmissable crime drama'

Groundbreaking classic 'The Boys In The Band' arrives on Blu-ray 21 January

Groundbreaking queer cinema classic The Boys In The Band was one of director William Friedkin's earliest works, and a hugely controversial film on its original 1970 release, dividing the gay community in the US and beyond. Now, years after it became notable not just for featuring an all-gay cast but as being the first mainstream movie to use the C word, making its UK Blu-ray debut courtesy of Second Sight on 21 January.

Based on the seminal Broadway hit of the same name, playwright Mart Crowley adapted his own play for the big screen, creating a script full of acerbic speeches and cutting one liners for his cast of unforgettable characters. The original stage cast including Kenneth Nelson, Peter White and Leonard Frey all starred in the film, one that Friedkin rates as 'one of the few films I've made that I can still watch".

Famed for its caustic wit, savage putdowns and many expletives, the film follows a group of gay men celebrating one of their friend's birthdays, amid much drunken backbiting and, as the drink flows, the evening descends even further...

'The Boys in the Band has gone through backlashes and re-evaluations, but its truthfulness remains, not as a coming-out drama but as a keyhole into the lives of already-confident outsiders'
