Chilling British Horror “The Moor” Set for UK Release This Summer

The Moor

This summer, horror enthusiasts are in for a treat with the release of the British supernatural horror film, “The Moor.” Directed by Chris Cronin, this chilling tale will hit UK cinemas on June 14th and be available on Digital HD from July 1st. The film stars Sophia La Porta, David Edward-Robertson, Elizabeth Dormer-Phillips, and the late Bernard Hill, promising a captivating and haunting experience.

“The Moor” tells the story of Claire, who is drawn back to her traumatic past when Bill, the father of her murdered childhood friend, seeks her help to keep the killer behind bars. With the aid of psychic Eleanor, they venture into the haunted moor believed to be the boy’s final resting place. What they encounter is far more sinister than they ever imagined, with dark forces lurking beneath the surface.

Chris Cronin’s directorial debut has already garnered critical acclaim, receiving nominations for Best Director and Best Film at Total Film’s FrightFest Awards 2023 and winning Best Scare. Cronin, a Yorkshire native, emphasizes the emotional aftermath of tragedy rather than the violence itself, exploring themes of grief, guilt, and unresolved trauma through the lens of horror.

In Cronin’s words, “Genre lets us take a look at very human and painful situations and make them larger than life, forcing us to re-examine them.” This approach promises a thought-provoking and spine-chilling narrative that will resonate with fans of the genre.

“The Moor” will feature special screenings and Q&A sessions across the UK, including events at City Screen Picturehouse in York and Broadway in Nottingham, providing audiences with a deeper insight into the film’s creation and themes.

Don’t miss the chance to experience this uniquely British horror film that delves into the supernatural fears rooted in the Yorkshire moors.
