There shouldn’t be a fan out there who’s not excited about the prospect of the much beloved Hammer Films churning out some new horror for us to sink our teeth into. A few new stills from their upcoming film, The Wake Wood, dropped into our laps today and we’re ready to play nice and share!
Directed and co-written by David Keating and starring Aidan Gillen, Eva Birthistle, and Timothy Spall, The Wake Wood tells the tale of a couple still grieving over the death of nine-year-old Alice, their only child who was killed at the jaws of a crazed dog. Vet Patrick and pharmacist Louise relocate to the remote town of Wake Wood, where they learn of a pagan ritual that will allow them three more days with Alice. The couple find the idea disturbing and exciting in equal measure, but once they agree to terms with Arthur, the village’s leader, a far bigger question looms: What will they do when it’s time for Alice to go back?
