If you weren’t excited for Hammer Films’ Wake Wood yet, wait until you feast your eyes upon its full UK trailer debut. Oh, Hammer. How good it is to have you back!
Directed and co-written by David Keating and starring Aidan Gillen, Eva Birthistle, and Timothy Spall, 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?
Vertigo Films will be releasing Wake Wood in UK cinemas on 25th March 2011, and the DVD release will follow on 28th March courtesy of Momentum Pictures. Special features include an interview with the cast and crew, deleted scenes, the trailer, and the teaser trailer.
Dark Sky plans a Stateside theatrical release in spring 2011, followed by DVD and VOD. Look for more on that soon.
