Star-studded British horror The Reverend now shooting

Perhaps I should qualify what I mean by "star-studded". You won't find Hollywood A-listers like Keira Knightley or Jude Law in Burn Hand Films' latest British indie horror The Reverend. Instead you'll find seriously cool people like Emily Booth (Doghouse, Evil Aliens), Doug Bradley (Hellraiser and sequels, Pumpkinhead 3), Tamar Hassan (The Ferryman, Jack Falls), Simon Phillips (Jack Says and sequels, Jesus vs the Messiah), Giovanni Lombardo Radice (A Day of Violence, Cannibal Apocalypse), Mads Koudal (Footsteps, Merantau Warrior)...

The film is written and directed by Neil Jones, fresh from the success of his boxing drama Risen, and has make-up effects by Paul Hyett (The Descent, Mutant Chronicles).

Synopsis: Fresh from seminary school a new Reverend embarks on his first parish. A small, low maintenance Chapel based in the quiet idyllic setting of a quiet country village. While on the surface the village seems to be a peaceful parish, with perfect residents, soon it becomes apparent that something more sinister lurks beneath the fa├žade of a local businessman. On a wet, cold night a mysterious girl visits The Reverend at the chapel. Cold and upset she is welcomed in warmly, soon it becomes apparent that her visit is not for sanctuary but to deliver a message, a message in the form of a deep, bloody bite... Awoken with an unknown, uncontrollable thirst a confused Reverend can find no evidence of the girl from the night before, with nothing but the thirst and memory of the bite, The Reverend embarks on his mandate, to clean up the village and the neighbouring estate, by preaching or feasting.
