Blood and Carpet - kitchen sink retro horror

Here's the groovy trailer for Blood and Carpet, a brand new British horror feature which takes the genre back to the 1960s. Not the 1960s of Victorian Gothic Hammer but the real swinging sixties, or at least the seedy underbelly thereof. Director Graham Fletcher-Cook sells the film as a cross between Billy Liar, Up the Junction and Psycho. Or maybe it's A Taste of Honey meets Alfie meets Cover Girl Killer. Whatever, it looks great.

Fletcher-Cook is better known as an actor. He was in Sid and Nancy, he was in Straight to Hell (and a 2010 sequel of which I whit not). He was in Cry Freedom and Absolute Beginners and Stars of the Roller State Disco but of course we all know him from his turn as Mr Newman in Elisar Cabrera's Demonsoul.

The cast includes Frank Boyce (Tony), Bill Fellows (Bloodless, Zombie Women of Satan, Witch House: The Legend of Petronel Haxley), Shona McWilliams (When Evil Calls), Nicola Stapleton (Urban Ghost Story), Andrew Tiernan (Dead Cert, Man Who Sold the World) and GFC himself.

I'm looking forward to seeing this one. Expect a review as and when...
