The Wake Wood (2010) is an upcoming horror film with a difference. A U.K. and Irish co-production by Hammer films[1], The Wake Wood is directed by Ireland's David Keating.[2] It stars Timothy Spall, Eva Birthistle, Dan Gordon and Aidan Gillen.[3]



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?




Wake Wood was filmed in County Donegal, Ireland.[5] It was the first feature from genre production company Hammer Films in thirty years.[6]
