Brilliant director Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) is back with a brand new monster movie titled The Lair, and Collider has shared the first images to give you a taste of the horrors to come.


In the film, “Royal Air Force pilot Lt. Kate Sinclair (Charlotte Kirk, The Reckoning) is shot down over Afghanistan and finds refuge in an abandoned underground bunker where deadly man-made biological weapons – half human, half alien – are awakened.”


Jonathan Howard, Jamie Bamber, Tanji Kibong, Leon Ockenden, Mark Strepan, Harry Taurasi, Alex Morgan, Adam Bond, Sarah Lambie, Kibong Tanji, and Troy Alexander also star.


Daniel-Konrad Cooper produces with Kwesi Dickson and Jonathan Halperyn, and Daniel Kresmery serves as co-producers. The film is produced is also produced by Rather Good Films Ltd. Financing for the project comes from Ashland Hill Media Finance, Ingenious, and Trigger Films


I’m thrilled to be back in the world of full-blooded action horror for the first time since ‘The Descent’ and ‘Dog Soldiers,’ and this film certainly holds some kinship with those two movies. Originally conceived as a small and contained indie film to shoot during lockdown, my ambitions for the movie grew into something much more action-packed and monster-fueled, with a sci-fi twist. It’s packed full of cool characters, scares, laughs, and of course some grizzly death scenes.” Marshall said in a statement.


The Lair, which has been acquired by RLJE Films and Shudder, is set to open in theaters, and debut on Digital and VOD on October 28, 2022, just in time for Halloween. Shudder will release the film early next year.
