Description

"Lured to a land of demons, darkness and death!"

Faint heart beware! Mysterious rituals and visions of the otherworldly make for an unnerving atmosphere in Roy Spence's fiendish depiction of the occult. As ever, local landmarks provide the backdrop to this Gothic Films production, with Clandeboye House and North Down's Swinley Bay featuring prominently.


 

Notes

Twin brothers Roy and Noel Spence have been making films like this for over fifty years; with subjects including crafty leprechauns, creatures from outer space, fifties rock 'n' rollers and the undead. You can enjoy many of these fantastical creations on BFI player.
