#IrishFilm: Independent Irish horror Beyond the Woods secures distribution deal
Irish horror movie Beyond the Woods has secured Irish, UK, U.S., and Canadian distribution with UK horror distributor LEFT Films.
Seven old friends get together for a reunion at a holiday home on the edge of a forest in Ireland. However, a sink hole has opened nearby and is spewing hot sulphur. The friends begin to act out of character and soon come to realise that something evil is also crossing through the sink hole… it has opened a portal to Hell…
Beyond the Woods is award-winning director Sean Breathnach’s feature film debut. The film stars Irene Kelleher (Game of Thrones), Seán McGillicuddy (Game of Thrones), Ross Mac Mahon (Penny Dreadful) and Claire Loy (Casualty). Beyond the Woods, which was shot on location in Cork, has picked up numerous awards on the global festival circuit.
It’s fantastic to be working with a well established horror film distributor like Left films. When we made this film we wanted to get it out to as wide an audience as possible. We set out to make a horror film with character and atmosphere. We’re thrilled that Beyond the Woods will be widely available early in the new year.
Sean Breathnach, Director
Beyond the Woods will be released on February 19th in Ireland and the UK, with a U.S. and Canadian release on February 5th.
