Darkland Distribution’s upcoming dark and disturbing British horror, Shepherd, is set to make its World Premiere this October at the BFI London Film Festival with its theatrical release to follow this November. To mark the occasion, the new trailer has been released, teasing a horror-filled film.
Writer and Director of Shepherd, Russell Owen, was delighted with the news of the film’s selection, saying, “I’ve followed the BFI London Film Festival for decades, so to actually be a part of it is surreal and a massive honour. I can’t think of a better platform to bring Shepherd to an audience and I’m over the moon.”
In the film, “running from grief after the mysterious death of his wife, Eric Black takes a job as a shepherd. Trapped alone on a majestic weather-beaten island with an ominous secret. One man’s spiraling madness meets a vengeful supernatural force. What starts as the perfect wind-swept escape becomes a race to save his sanity and his life.”
Tom Hughes (Red Joan, Victoria), Kate Dickie (“Game of Thrones”, The Witch), Gaia Weiss (“Vikings,” “Medici”), and Greta Scacchi (The Player) star in Shepherd, in theaters on November 5, 2021.
