British horror western Blood Moon set for UK and US release

Jeremy Wooding's Blood Moon - a werewolf western shot in Kent in 2013 - premiered at last year's Frightfest. Since then it has played a bunch more festivals including Bram Stoker and Fantasporto. Now it's finally coming to DVD just over a year later, on both sides of the Atlantic.

Uncork'd Entertainment release the US disc on 1st September, rhen StudioCanal release the film in the UK on 5th October.

Wooding has previously directed episodes of some of the best shows on CBBC, including Bear Behaving Badly, Dani's House and The Legend of Dick and Dom.

The cast includes Shaun Dooley (Broadchurch, Wolfblood, Misfits), George Blagden, Anna Skellern (Siren, A Night in the Woods) and Canadian voice legend Kerry Shale.

NB. The publicity claims that this is the first western shot in the UK since Carry On Cowboy although that's not strictly true. Even if we discoumt Richard Driscoll's Eldorado, we can't ignore Edgar Wright's infamous debut A Fistful of Fingers. Not that it matters. Just being accurate is all.
