I had the pleasure recently of catching up with Conor McMahon’s Stitches again and it is remarkable to me what a fun film it is.  If you are a fan of wild over-the-top gore then you should love Stitches.  Warning: The tone of the film tends to lean toward the “silly” side of the genre, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, ESPECIALLY whenever comedian Ross Noble was onscreen (which wasn’t enough).

Now a couple years later we have McMahon’s follow-up film about to be released from Dark Sky Films and it looks much more serious and very creepy.  We have a trailer and synopsis for you below.  The film hits VOD, Digital Download, DVD and Blu-Ray April 14.

Sarah (Niamh Algar, Vikings, The Light of Day) and Mark (Stephen Cromwell, The Legend of Longwood, Red Rock) are traveling through rural Ireland when car trouble strikes. The couple must head out on foot to find any sign of civilization. Eventually they come upon a lonely house – but the man inside is wounded, and when they try to help him, he attacks. Sarah and Mark manage to escape but soon they are confronted by something even worse.

A sinister being has awakened from a thousand-year sleep and it has set its sights on the stranded young couple. Deep within the dark bog, the two are faced with an unimaginable evil, but they soon realize that there may be one thing that can stop the creature: light. As the sun sets and light sources dwindle, the creature becomes more powerful, and Sarah and Mark find themselves in a fight for their lives where a gas lamp or even just the illumination of a single match may be the only thing that can save them.
