The Hamiltons are back for another bite! The dysfunctional vampire family returns but this time they’re heading to the UK under a new name: The Thompsons… Get the first glimpse this Sunday 26th August 2012 in London as it premieres at Film4 FrightFest at 10.30am on the main screen, complete with a special Q+A with the cast beforehand!

The Hamiliton siblings were a dysfunctional, orphaned family living in sunny suburbia. On the outside, they appear normal enough but they harbour a very dark secret…the need to drink blood in order to survive. A bloodbath at a local gas station means the family has to go on the run, eventually seeing them resurface in the U.K. with a new identity as The Thompsons. Desperate for protection in this unfamiliar country, the deadly family seeks out the help of a shadowy underground group rumoured to be sympathetic to vampires.

Set and filmed mostly in the UK, THE THOMPSONS is a new release from acclaimed horror writers and directors The Butcher Brothers and is available on DVD and download to own and rent from 15th October.


BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!
