Hard work never killed anyone, until now...
...Shudder is sinking it's teeth into a fun new twist on vampire lore soon, as Collider has revealed today the official trailer for writer/director Chris Baugh's Boys from County Hell! I caught this wild and bloody flick during Nightstream 2020 and had a great time with it. You can read my review here.
In Boys from County Hell:
"Welcome to Six Mile Hill, a sleepy Irish backwater whose only claim to fame is the somewhat dubious local legend that Bram Stoker once spent a night in the local pub. It’s home to Eugene Moffat, a young man who fills most of his days drinking pints with his friends and pranking tourists who come to visit the gravesite of Abhartach, a legendary Irish vampire some believe to have inspired ‘Dracula.’ When a personal tragedy forces Eugene to go and work for his gruff, no-nonsense father, he finds himself on the site of a controversial new road development that threatens to destroy the town’s livelihood. But strange events unfold when Eugene and the crew tear down a famous cairn believed to be the final resting place of Abhartach, and they soon come under attack from a sinister force that has infected one of their workmates. As the night closes in, The Boys must fight for survival while discovering the true horror of a myth that hits much closer to home than any of them realize."
The film stars Jack Rowan (Peaky Blinders), Nigel O’Neill (The Bookshop), Louisa Harland (Derry Girls), Fra Fee (Animals) and John Lynch (The Terror).
Boys from County Hell comes to Shudder in the US and Canada on April 22nd. Check out the trailer below!
