Last week, Shudder unveiled the official poster, trailer, and release date for the rowdy Irish vampire horror-comedy, BOYS FROM COUNTY HELL. Make sure you check it out below and let us know what you think!
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.
Starring Jack Rowan (“Peaky Blinders”), Nigel O’Neill (The Bookshop), Louisa Harland (“Derry Girls”), Fra Fee (Animals, the upcoming “Hawkeye” series) and John Lynch (“The Terror”, The Banishing) and Michael Hough (the upcoming “Chapelwaite” series), the film is written and directed by Chris Baugh (Bad Day for the Cut).
BOYS FROM COUNTY HELL is produced by Brendan Mullin of Six Mile Hill Productions and Yvonne Donohoe for Blinder Films, and executive produced by Katie Holly for Blinder Films, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Rian Cahill for Automatik, and Lesley McKimm for Screen Ireland. The film is a co-production between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland and was supported by Endeavor Content, Screen Ireland, Northern Ireland Screen, and Egg Post Production.
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.
