Crucible of the Vampire

Crucible of the Vampire



Cannes-premiered horror flick Crucible of the Vampire arrives in cinemas on 1 February 2019, and with the help of the Earl of Manchester’s Regiment of Foote – a British Civil War re-enactment group – the Leeds premiere will take us back in time to the 17th Century, where our vampire story begins.

Michael Molcher stars alongside Neil Morrissey (Line of Duty, Men Behaving Badly), and rising stars Katie Goldfinch and Florence Cady, and he takes the lead during the atmospheric flashback scenes that provide the backstory to this spine-chilling horror.

Alongside his dedicated group of re-enactors, Molcher and his regiment will descend upon the Leeds premiere for a truly unique red carpet experience. Molcher is a comic book journalist, best known for his contributions to magazine 2000AD.

Writer-director Iain Ross-McNamee has also penned an accompanying graphic novel for the film, delivering historical fiction and horror alike brilliantly through this modern medium.

Join us at the Leeds premiere at the Showcase on 1 February 2019 to experience the British Civil War in the flesh.
