Battling vampires are easy as long as you have the necessary tools and rules of garlic, sunlight, wooden stakes, and even decapitation. Of course, many forget all those tools and rules were fictionalized in Bram Stoker’s Dracula more than a century ago. In the horror comedy Boys From County Hell, those rules don’t apply. Now the survivors must battle vampires and their master by throwing all fictional rules out the window and improvise in this laugh out loud movie starring Jack Rowan and Nigel O’Neill.
The film also stars Louisa Harland (Derry Girls), Fra Fee (Disney+’s Hawkeye), John Lynch (The Terror), and Michael Hough (upcoming Chapelwaite series). Chris Baugh (Bad Day for the Cut) wrote and directed the movie.
Here’s the synopsis:
Strange events unfold in Six Mile Hill—a sleepy Irish town that claims to have been traveled by the famed author Bram Stoker—when construction on a new road disrupts the alleged grave of Abhartach, a legendary Irish vampire said to have inspired Dracula. Deadly and sinister forces terrorize the work crew led by Francie Moffat and his son Eugene, a free-spirited young man who prefers pints to pickaxes, and they’re forced to fight to survive the night while exposing the true horror that resides in the town’s local myth.
