Flickering candles, fog, and a ferocious beast in the forest… get ready for a fresh spin on the werewolf film, written and directed by Oscar and Bafta-nominated Sean Ellis (Cashback, Metro Manila).
The film boasts a superb cast, including Boyd Holbrook (The Sandman) and Cannes-winner Kelly Reilly (Yellowstone), in an eerie story about a small town in 19th century France menaced by an ancient curse.
In the late 1800s, a once-peaceful remote country village is under attack - but by who or what, no one knows. Villagers spread rumours of a cursed land, supernatural forces, and even demonic creatures, as the disappearances and killings continue. Pathologist John McBride (Boyd Holbrook) arrives to investigate the danger, only to discover something much deeper and more sinister than he ever could have imagined.
Sumptuously shot, packed with frights and superb special effects, with a mesmerising, spine-tingler of a score, and featuring a scarecrow “that’ll haunt your dreams” (Bloody Disgusting), the film recalls, according to Screen Daily “everything from Hammer to The Innocents, Dracula to creepy country house Gothic horror”.
A creature feature classic for the 21st-century, that The Screen Scene calls “one of the best horror films of the year”, EIGHT FOR SILVER will thrill and delight horror fans who got a kick out of the likes of contemporary horror hits The Witch and Hereditary.
