Level 33 Entertainment announces the release of the acclaimed horror film The Reverend on DVD and VOD February 11, 2014. Starring Stuart Brennan (Risen), Tamer Hassan (Batman Begins), Doug Bradley (Hellraiser:Bloodline) and Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner), this soul-scorching film has an SRP of $14.98 and is available on Amazon.com, iTunes and other retail and rental outlets across the U.S.
Written and directed by Neil Jones, The Reverend tells a cautionary tale of belief in the sacred while facing the temptations of the flesh. After delivering his first sermon in a new, small parish, a new Reverend (Brennan) is visited by a beautiful young woman (Emily Booth) who suddenly attacks him, biting his throat. He survives the attack, but awakes with an unknown, uncontrollable thirst. As the Reverend becomes more familiar with his congregation and the wider community, he realizes that this idyllic little town is anything but. It is plagued by drugs, prostitution and violence. The Reverend decides to put his new-found bloodlust to good use with horrific results.
“We’re very excited to bring this acclaimed British horror film to audiences across North America,” said Andreas Olavarria, President of Level 33 Entertainment. “Any fan of horror movies with strong spiritual themes examining the ancient battle between good and evil should not miss The Reverend.”
