“This isn’t Dracula…”
Vampire horror-comedy Boys from County Hell is coming exclusively to Shudder in the U.S. and Canada on April 22nd—and the official trailer is a bloody delight.
In the film, strange events unfold in Six Mile Hill—a sleepy Irish town that claims to have been travelled 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 terrorise 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.
Boys from County Hell was written and directed by Chris Baugh. The cast includes Jack Rowan, Nigel O’Neill, Louisa Harland, Fra Fee, John Lynch, and Michael Hough.
