I've yet to see Triangle, director Christopher Smith's latest film, but I enjoyed his earlier efforts (Severance and Creep) enough to consider myself a fan of his work. We've known about his latest production, the period film Black Death, for some time. Now, with it's UK theatrical release date right around the corner (February 26th, to be exact), Bloody-Disgusting has scored a slew of exclusive new stills that should have you excited about the film as I am. Who doesn't like period horror films about necromancers, knights, and the plague?
Here's the official plot breakdown to get everyone up to speed.
Medieval England has fallen under the shadow of The Black Death. In this apocalyptic world, filled with fear and superstition, a young monk called Osmund is charged with leading a fearsome knight, Ulric (Sean Bean) and his group of mercenaries to a remote marsh. Their quest is to hunt down a necromancer - someone able to bring the dead back to life. Torn between his love of God and the love of a young woman, Osmund discovers the necromancer, a mysterious beauty called Langiva. After Langiva reveals her Satanic identity and offers Osmund his heart's desire, the horror of his real journey begins...
If the quality of the stills is any indication, Black Death appears to be shaping up quite nicely. Hopefully we'll be get a look at the official trailer sometime in the coming weeks. No word yet on plans for a US release, but we'll keep you posted as details emerge.
