  Shepherd on Blu-ray and digital [read more]
  This'll look great in HD
  Darkland Distribution are thrilled to announce that the acclaimed British horror Shepherd will be released on Blu-ray and Digital Download from 21st February. Shepherd stars Tom Hughes (Red Joan, Victoria), Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, The Witch), Gaia Weiss (Vikings, Medici) & Greta Scacchi (The Player) and is directed by Russell Owen.

Since its Premiere at BFI London Film Festival and its theatrical release in November, critics have heaped praise on the British independent title. Total Film described the film as a "disturbing watch" with "truly nightmarish" visual effects, Starburst called it a "brooding, bleak, atmospheric nightmare that grips with ease" and SciFiNow reviewed it as a "physiological horror that hauntingly portrays the madness of isolation with striking visual clarity" and "not for the faint hearted."

Film critic Mark Kermode was also full of praise for the film, awarding it his 'Film of the Week' on his Radio 5: Live Show, lauding Kate Dickie's 'fantastic' performance and the 'eerie' atmosphere created by filmmaker Russell Owen; "...you can feel the cold, you can feel the loneliness, you can smell the air of the island."

Running from grief after the mysterious death of his wife, Eric Black (Tom Hughes) takes a job as a shepherd. Trapped alone on a majestic weather-beaten island with an ominous secret. One man's spiralling madness meets a vengeful supernatural force. What starts as the perfect wind-swept escape becomes a race to save his sanity and his life. The trailer is at the link above.
