Director David Keating | 2011 | 90 minutes | Horror, Thriller | English
After the sudden and violent death of their 9-year-old daughter Alice, Patrick and Louise relocate to the remote town of Wake Wood to start their lives anew. But they quickly discover that beneath its idyllic country façade the town holds a dark and mystifying secret- a centuries old pagan ritual that brings the dead back to life for three days. Desperate to say the goodbye they never had the chance to, Patrick and Louise agree to resurrect Alice. But their daughter is different now, and with time quickly running out the couple will have to decide if their love for her truly transcends the boundaries of life and death.
“For all its pre-Christian paganism, demon child imagery, blood and guts, David Keating’s rural horror movie is at heart an involving portrait of a young couple struggling to come to terms with the death of a daughter.”
– Time Out
“Wake Wood is an effectively creepy exploration of some of life’s biggest moments (birth and death) and is definitely worth checking out”
– Dread Central
“Thoroughly unsettling from start to finish, Wake Wood will please horror fans with its muted palette, ominously creepy atmosphere and neat nods to the best of 70s British horror.”
– Daily Mirror (UK)
