Wake Wood

Distribution | Production

A couple whose daughter has died move to a remote Irish village, having heard that the locals can perform a pagan rite to resurrect the dead – but only for three days. The ritual seems to be a success, but it soon becomes clear there is something terribly wrong with the revived child. Horror, with Aidan Gillen, Eva Birthistle and Timothy Spall.

Still grieving the death of nine-year-old Alice – their only child – at the jaws of a crazed dog, vet Patrick (AIDEN GILLEN) and pharmacist Louise (EVA BIRTHISTLE) relocate to the remote town of Wake Wood where they learn of a pagan ritual that will allow them three more days with Alice. The couple find the idea disturbing and exciting in equal measure, but once they agree terms with Arthur (TIMOTHY SPALL), the village’s leader, a far bigger question looms – what will they do when it’s time for Alice (ELLA CONNOLLY) to go back?

"a classy, darkly menacingly horror"
