SCREAM is proud to provide an exclusive reveal of the second trailer for the upcoming supernatural shocker, Unhallowed Ground.
Helmed by Russell England and penned by Paul Raschid (who also stars in the film), Unhallowed Ground follows a group of CCF cadets as they patrol a historic British boarding school overnight only to find themselves up against paranormal forces AND petty thieves.
The film brims with rising young stars including Roman Polanski’s daughter, Morgane Polanski (Vikings Season 3), Poppy Drayton (Downton Abbey), Thomas Law (The World’s End, Eastenders), Marcus Griffiths (Skins), Rachel Petladwala (MI High) and Paul Raschid (Ealing Comedy) as the students; Will Thorp (Casualty, Coronation Street; A.D. The Bible Continues), and Ameet Chana (Bend it Like Beckham, Eastenders) as the burglars and Andrew Lewis (Holby City) plays the dictatorial headmaster.
Having done the rounds at a number of festivals already, the film has amassed a number of accolades with Rachel Petladwala and Marcus Griffiths both receiving awards for Best Actor/Actress in Supporting Roles at the British Independent Film Festival and the film was also voted Best Horror at the London Independent Film Festival.
Unhallowed Ground will be released theatrically on Friday June 12th through Aviary Films and we’ll leave you to savour this exclusive trailer:

Meanwhile, the ante is upped by two brazen burglars who have chosen this very night to carry out a heist on the school archive room – a vault of priceless historical documents and artefacts. As the supernatural encounters begin to take an increasingly malevolent turn, the students realise they must escape Dhoultham before the night’s end. The only problem is they have all been separated; trapped in a maelstrom of ghosts, pistol-packing madmen and evil…
