Before Dawn - great trailer for the Emmerdale zombie film

The first trailer for Before Dawn is here. Directed by and starring Dominic Brunt (Paddy Kirk in Emmerdale), written by Emmerdale scripter Mark Illis from a story by (and also starring) Joanne Mitchell (Susan Davies in Emmerdale). Cast also includes Eileen O'Brien (Bridget Burgess in Emmerdale), Nicky Evans (Roy Glover...), Alan French (Geoff Jones... - look, I'm just getting this off IMDB, I've never actually watched the show and have no idea who these people are!).

Judging by this trailer, Before Dawn combines the current vogue for rural countryside horror - with the living dead! I really, really like that there's some slow, quiet bits even in this short trailer. That suggests a character-based film rather than just endless splatter. Let's hope so.

Helen Grace from the wonderful Left Films produces alongside Mitchell and Brunt with Colin's Marc Price as execprod and cinematographer - both names that give me extra confidence that this will be a good'un.


  1. This looks brill. Can't wait till it comes out at the cinema or on DVD. Well done that Paddy from Emmerdale!

  2. Can't wait for this!
