Living right on the doorstep to Dartmoor, I am very interested in seeing what Dartmoor Killing looks like. Now, thanks to deal with Soda Pictures, I have a release date to pencil in to the diary.

Per Screen Daily:

British psychological thriller Dartmoor Killing is using an innovative distribution, starting with self-distribution in cinemas from September 18 followed by a DVD and VOD release by Soda Pictures later in the autumn.

The story follows two friends When on a hiking weekend on Dartmoor, both are carrying secrets they have not shared. An encounter with a man on the moors leads them into a terrifying ordeal.

Frances Harvey, acquisitions manager at Soda said: “We were first introduced to Dartmoor Killing at Film London’s Micro Market and are thrilled to be working with the team on the DVD and digital release of the film.”

The film’s theatrical plans a run at the Barn Cinema in Darlington and new sites added for the Merlin and Scott cinema chains as well as Bristol’s Watershed.

Jayne Chard produces and the film’s executive producers include Penny Wolf, Luke Randolph and Gina Fucci.

Director Peter Nicholson said: “Since developing the film with the support of the ICO and Film London’s Build Your Audience programme we have believed in a hybrid mix of direct distribution and traditional partners for a film of this scale.

“The Soda deal is a perfect fit for us and we will be working closely together to maximize the momentum of the theatrical campaign as the film moves into its home entertainment release.”

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
