The past few years have given us a wealth of fantastic Irish horror movies, but until now we haven’t gotten an Irish vampire movie—at least not that I’m aware of. Boys From County Hell is here to fill that void.  I’m very excited to see that this one has been picked up by Shudder, as I’ve been eager to see it since it was reviewed on Modern Horrors as part of our Nightstream 2020 coverage.

We have the new trailer for you here and it looks like writer/director Chris Baugh (Bad Day for the Cut) is making his own vampire rules in this bloody horror comedy. The cast, including Jack Rowan (Peaky Blinders), Nigel O’Neill (The Bookshop), and Louisa Harland (Derry Girls), feels very exciting. This one should be a good time!

Boys From County Hell will stream exclusively to Shudder on April 22nd in the US and Canada, as well as via the Shudder offering within the AMC+ bundle, where available.

Strange events unfold in Six Mile Hill – a sleepy Irish town that claims to have been traveled by the famed author Bram Stoker – when construction on a new road disrupts the alleged grave of Abhartach, a legendary Irish vampire said to have inspired Dracula. Deadly and sinister forces terrorize the work crew led by Francie Moffat and his son Eugene, a free-spirited young man who prefers pints to pickaxes, and they’re forced to fight to survive the night while exposing the true horror that resides in the town’s local myth.
