Producers Mem Ferda and Adam J Merrifield of White Lantern Film have revealed a shocking new red band trailer for the hotly anticipated new UK horror flick, K-SHOP. The film transfers the Sweeney Todd story to the binge-drinking milieu of Britain where a vigilant kebab shop owner,battles with drunken clubbers.

A debut for writer/director Dan Pringle, the film has secured distribution through Bulldog Film Distributors and is set for UK Cinema release in July this year. Empress Road Pictures will be the International Sales agent for the film.

Commenting on the film, Pringle says, "Set against a familiar backdrop of British binge drinking culture, the film’s intention has always been to present a highly thrilling story whilst touching on some important social issues simultaneously”

The film follows the story of a kebab shop owner’s son who turns butcher after his father is killed by lawless yobs on a night out and paint’s an accurate picture of Britain’s binge drinking culture by uniquely integrating scenes of genuine night life with the film’s visceral narrative.

Producer Mem Ferda comments, "It's high time a socially relevant film like this was made highlighting the significant problems of drink culture that is prevalent amongst our teen society today. I can best describe it as an intoxicating, super-slaughter, Sweeney Todd-esque ride that cleverly stabs at British binge drinking. It will certainly have partygoers think twice about stopping off for a kebab on the way home."

K-Shop stars Ziad Abaza (Tyrant), Darren Morfitt (Dog Soldiers), Reece Noi (Game of Thrones), Harry Reid (Eastenders), Scott Williams (The Crew), and Ewen Macintosh (The Office, Lobster).

K-SHOP will be screened at the Dead By Dawn International Film Festival, Scotland on 21st of April 2016 and at the Southend-on-Sea Film Festival, between 27th to 30th of May (screening date and time tbc)

Recommended Release: Sweeny Todd
