Sean Ellis Fantasy Horror Eight For Silver Gets UK Release Date


It’s been a few years since Sean Ellis Metro Manilla was released. Next month his latest film Eight For Silver will get a UK home release.

Boyd Holbrook (The Sandman) and Kelly Reilly (Yellowstone) lead the cast. Flickering candles, fog, and a ferocious beast in the forest… get ready for a fresh spin on the werewolf film. In an eerie story about a small town in 19th century France menaced by an ancient curse.

The film premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival under the title of The Cursed. It also played at Arrow FrightFest, now it’s ready for it’s home entertainment release. We have no idea why the title has changed, we haven’t seen this. We assume the new title is closer something referenced in the film.

Check out the film’s official Trailer below, it looks a solid chiller that may bring a big smile to horrorphiles.

In the late 1800s, a once-peaceful remote country village is under attack – but by who or what, no one knows. Villagers spread rumours of a cursed land, supernatural forces, and even demonic creatures, as the disappearances and killings continue. Pathologist John McBride (Boyd Holbrook) arrives to investigate the danger, only to discover something much deeper and more sinister than he ever could have imagined.

The rest of the cast for this one includes Kelly Reilly, Alistair Petrie, Roxane Duran, Nigel Betts, Stuart Bowman, Simon Kunz, and Amelia Crouch.

Eight For Silver will be released in the UK and Ireland on Blu-ray plus DVD from 30th January 2023.
