Boys From County Hell releases on August 6th.
Wildcard Distribution and Vertigo Releasing have announced that Dracula origin story Boys From County Hell will open in Irish cinemas from Friday 6th August.

Just when you thought the vampire film had been drained dry, along comes an unexpected and original spin on the genre from writer/director Chris Baugh, with the follow-up to his acclaimed crime thriller debut Bad Day For The Cut

With nods to Ireland’s formidable horror heritage (the local pub is called ‘The Stoker’ after the Dracula author), Boys From County Hell follows recent Irish folklore horror hits The Hallow and The Hole in The Ground, whilst also injecting some surprisingly hysterical moments. It echoes Clive Barker’s Irish-set eighties creature feature Rawhead Rex, as well as a delectable sense of the backwoods dread present in 2019’s Scottish rural thriller Calibre.

With a fantastic cast, including Jack Rowan (Peaky Blinders, Noughts + Crosses), Louisa Harland (Derry Girls), Nigel O’Neill (from Baugh’s debut), and John Lynch (The Banishing, Isolation), Boys From County Hell is rich in Celtic atmosphere, drenched in gore, wildly funny and splendidly scary - the very definition of a crowd pleaser.

Since receiving its World Premiere at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival’s Midnight section last year, it has gone on to screen at numerous festivals globally including the Panorama Fantastic section at Sitges (one of the world's foremost festivals specializing in fantasy and horror) and the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival earlier this year.

The film is a Six Mile Hill / Blinder Films Production, and a Northern Irish / Irish co-production. Endeavor Content is the studio, FIS Eireann/ Screen Ireland and Northern Ireland Screen, in association with Automatik, Egg Studios, and Inevitable Pictures.

Boys From County Hell will be released in Irish cinemas on August 6th.
