With the announcement that Jason Flemyng’s directorial debut Eat Local will be premiering at Horror Channel Frightfest comes a handful of new stills for the Brit horror-comedy.
The film centres on Essex boy Sebastian (newcomer Billy Cook), whose promise of a night of passion with a seductive older lady becomes a fight for survival when she takes him to a secluded farmhouse to meet her friends, who happen to be a coven of hungry vampires. Unbeknownst to them, a heavily armed band of mercenary vampire hunters are on their way to crash the party.
Flemyng has assembled an impressive cast headed by Cook, Daredevil’s Charlie Cox, Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean series), Tony Curran (Underworld: Evolution) and Torchwood’s Eve Myles. Also co-starring are BAFTA nominated actor/director Dexter Fletcher, Doctor Who’s Freema Agyeman and TV veteran/national treasure Annette Crosbie, who looks to be going all Wicker Man in one of these images.
While probably best known for his work with Guy Ritchie, actor Flemyng has a long history with horror, having starred in the likes of Deep Rising, Mirrors, Seed of Chucky and George A. Romero’s under-appreciated Bruiser.
Frightfest will serve up Eat Local on Saturday 26th August. Don’t forget your toothpick.
