Award-nominated “Crucible of the Vampire” gets an enhanced re-release with the 2022 Director’s Cut, including new scenes; now streaming.
Ghost Dog Films, the British independent film and video game company has released a new version of their award-nominated retro-style gothic thriller Crucible of the Vampire.
The 2022 Director’s Cut features new footage and a remastered soundtrack of the imaginative British gothic chiller which has strong echoes of Tigon, Hammer, and M R James ghost stories.
Theatrically released in the UK through Showcase cinemas in early 2019, Crucible of the Vampire was then released via UK Home Entertainment and nominated for Best Thriller at the National UK Film Awards 2020. A devilishly delightful, genre throwback, the film stars Katie Goldfinch in the lead role of Isabelle alongside Neil Morrissey (Men Behaving Badly, Line of Duty), Larry Rew (Underworld, Lord of the Rings), and Florence Cady who stars as the beautiful but dangerous Scarlet.
Amanda Murray, producer with Ghost Dog Films says:
“CRUCIBLE OF THE VAMPIRE is a fresh take on classic horror and favours story and mood over cheap shocks or gore. It’s a creepy and intelligently crafted tale of mystery and terror.”
Director Iain Ross-McNamee explains the inspiration for this new cut:
