Cold and Dark - Coming to DVD!


From the same studio that's going to be bringing you the awesome looking zombie/western "The Wretched", as just announced that one of their films, titled "Cold and Dark" will be coming to the U.S. on DVD in June 2005.

Now I dont know how I missed this the first time around - I was just at Sheer Films website the other day, but "Cold and Dark" looks to be one film I would love to see.  Below is an overview of what the movie is about.

Detective Sergeant John Dark (Luke Goss) is a good copper, working the tough beat of Vice in a dockside city in England. His long-time mentor is the charismatic Detective Chief Inspector Mortimer Shade (Kevin Howarth). He has taught Dark every trick in the book. Sometimes the fight is against the Bad Guys; sometimes it is against their own, when police bureaucracy gets in the way of good coppers bending the rules.

When Mort is killed by an unknown assailant, Dark is devastated. He tries to run the killer down, but fails. When he returns to his boss' corpse, he is astonished to find Mort alive and seemingly well.

The following weeks see a series of bizarre underworld killings where Mort and Dark's adversaries are taken out by a sequence of mysterious bestial attacks. Each one of the gangsters that police protocol prevented Mort and Dark from touching, are suddenly prey to a savage brand of justice beyond official control.

Dark discovers that Mort is the cause. The attack that left Mort for dead was perpetrated by a supernatural creature and Mort has now joined its legion.

Dark finds himself facing a challenge to his loyalty and ethics; if his friend and mentor is still only taking out the Bad Guys, does it matter that he is doing so by supernatural means?

Will Dark turn him in, or keep silent?

Cold and Dark is a tale of police vigilantism told through the cypher of supernatural horror.  Sounds good to me.  You can check out the trailer for the film here, and if you like what you see, here's the official site.
