The Taking becomes Bait on DVD

Dominic Brunt’s brutal revenge thriller The Taking, which premiered in Leeds last November, has been retitled Bait for its DVD release. Metrodome have penciled the film in for a 7th September release.

Brunt previously made the brilliant zombie picture Before Dawn but remains best-known to mainstream audiences as ‘Paddy off Emmerdale’. Scripted by Emmerdale writer Paul Roundell, The Taking/Bait stars Dominic’s wife Joanne Mitchell (Before Dawn) and Victoria Smurfit (The Last Great Wilderness) as two friends looking for a loan to help them set up a small business. And Jonathan Slinger as the psychotic loan shark who hunts them down.

Also in the cast are Adam Fogerty (Scintilla), Mark Rathbone (Cradle of Fear, Inbred), Leanne Rowley (Entity), Rula Lenska and, somewhat bizarrely, comedian Charlie Chuck.
