The DLB is looking forward to Rue Morgue Magazine‘s monthly Cinemacabre movie night tonight (June 16). Being shown is the Canadian premiere of the new Hammer film Wake Wood which arrives on DVD and Blu-ray June 28 through eOne Entertainment. (Look for a review on the 28th.)

Here is a plot summary:

“Still grieving the death of nine-year-old Alice – their only child – at the jaws of a crazed dog, vet Patrick and pharmacist Louise relocate to the remote town of Wake Wood where they learn of a pagan ritual that will allow them three more days with Alice.

The couple find the idea disturbing and exciting in equal measure, but once they agree terms with Arthur, the village’s leader, a far bigger question looms – what will they do when it’s time for Alice to go back?”

Sounds like a cross between Pet Semetary and The Wicker Man, and we can’t wait.

Wake Wood plays The Bloor Cinema (506 Bloor St. W.) in Toronto at 9:30 pm EST tonight, June 16.
