The atmospheric British horror film "The Moor" in select UK theaters this June

The Moor will be in UK Cinemas from 14th June and on Digital HD from 1st July

British horror film "The Moor," directed by Chris Cronin, is set to release in UK cinemas on June 14th and will be available on Digital HD starting July 1st, courtesy of Bulldog Film Distribution.

"The Moor" stars Sophia La Porta, David Edward-Robertson, Elizabeth Dormer-Phillips, and the late British acting legend, Bernard Hill. The story follows Claire, who, as a child, witnessed her best friend's abduction and murder. Now, twenty-five years later, the killer is set to be released from prison. Claire is approached by the victim's father, Bill, with a plan to keep the killer behind bars. Together with psychic Eleanor, they venture into the haunted moor, where they encounter more than just the spirits of lost children—a dark and malevolent presence lurks beneath the surface.

Director Chris Cronin, in his feature-length debut, aims to explore the aftermath of tragedy and its impact on lives and relationships, set in his home county of Yorkshire. Instead of focusing on the fictional murders themselves, the film delves into the unresolved grief and guilt left in their wake. Cronin views horror as a vehicle to examine profound human experiences through tension and suspense, allowing audiences to engage with themes of loss and trauma in a heightened, visceral way. The film received acclaim after its premiere at Pigeon Shrine FrightFest and was nominated for multiple awards .

Commenting on the film's release, Director Chris Cronin said; "My aim with this story was to create an original horror film set in my home county of Yorkshire. Instead of delving into the fictional murders themselves, I focused on the aftermath and how something so terrible affects lives and relationships. What happens when so much grief and guilt are left unresolved? As a genre filmmaker I wanted to explore those important questions through tension and suspense. Genre lets us take a look at very human and painful situations and make them larger than life, forcing us to re-examine them. Thankfully, most of us don't know what it's like to experience a tragedy as great as Bill and Claire’s, but through the medium of horror we can elevate how awful it would be, making the audience really feel it."
