From the Press Release:
British horror ‘Book of Monsters’ will receive its World Premiere at the Frightfest 2018 film festival in London, UK on Saturday 25th August. In anticipation of the premiere screening, Dark Rift films have released the first teaser trailer and a new poster for the monster filled flick.
In Book of Monsters, six kick-ass women must fight off a horde of terrifying monsters at an 18th birthday party. Funded on Kickstarter in July last year, the film was the third highest funded horror film in the UK on the crowdfunding platform at the time and offered backers the unique opportunity to vote on which monsters would be included in the movie.
The stunning poster artwork was created by Tom Hodge aka ‘The Dude Designs’ who was also behind the poster art for Hobo with a Shotgun, Wolfcop and The Inkeepers to name a few.
Read the official synopsis below:
“Sophie’s 18th birthday party becomes a bloodbath when six terrifying monsters descend upon her house, intent on devouring the party guests and killing anyone who tries to leave.
As her school friends are torn apart and eaten, Sophie must rally a band of misfits and take up arms to send their party crashers back to hell. To survive the night, Sophie will face her destiny; monsters are real – and she’s the only one who can stop them.
BOOK OF MONSTERS brings old-school practical creature effects and a dark comedic edge to make for a deeply entertaining monster movie.”
Book of Monsters stars Lyndsey Craine, Michaela Longden, Lizzie Stanton, Daniel S. Thrace, Anna Dawson, Rose Muirhead, Arron Dennis and Steph Mossman. Also starring is horror legend Nicholas Vince as Jonas, famous for his roles as the Chatterer in Clive Barker’s Hellraiser & Hellbound: Hellaiser II as well as Kinski in Nightbreed.
This is the second feature film by director Stewart Sparke and writer Paul Butler, whose previous film ‘The Creature Below’ premiered at London Frightfest in 2016 and has since been released on DVD & VOD around the world.
