by Phil Wheat


Screenbound International Pictures have announce that they have made an exclusive representation agreement for world sales of the latest movie from Ghost Dog Films, the British vampire film Crucible of the Vampire  This Hammer-esque new movie comes from director Iain Ross-McNamee (The Singing Bird Will Come), who continues his passion for strong female leads in a psychological horror setting which helps give the gothic vampire story a thoroughly modern twist as love and sexual repression are compellingly intertwined throughout the film.

Crucible of the Vampire see Isabelle (Katie Goldfinch) as a naive, university researcher who is sent to a foreboding, gothic manor house in rural Shropshire to verify that an ancient crucible is that of a Sorcerer from the 17th Century who was executed for bringing the dead back to life. As Katie delves further into the crucible’s history, it soon becomes apparent that the house holds more than one dark secret…

With nods to great British horror films of the past, Crucible of the Vampire has all the credentials to become a modern cult classic and its director, Iain Ross-McNamee, was delighted to have Screenbound International Pictures on board for sales:

We wanted to be represented by a company that understands classic British horror and Screenbound’s long association with Euro London Films and Tigon Pictures was the perfect fit for Crucible of the Vampire.

Featuring a strong British cast including Men Behaving Badly‘s Neil Morrissey, Crucible of the Vampire will have its premiere screening at the EFM in Berlin next month. Check out a selection of images from the film below and look out for a review here soon!
