AT NICOLE’S WEDDING THERE WILL BE BLOOD, MAYHEM AND SLAUGHTER… THERE WILL ALSO BE CAKE AND A LATE BAR.

The third feature from writer-director Pat Higgins (TRASHOUSE & KILLER KILLER), the independent British horror-comedy HELLBRIDE is a supernatural stew of laughs, scares and bloody carnage that mixes rom-com traditions with splatter conventions to unique effect.

Lee Parker and Nicole Meadows are all set to be married. There are, however, one or two problems on the horizon. Nicole's engagement ring is cursed. Once the property of a wronged bride who went on a killing spree, the ring has a history of bringing death and destruction to all who come in contact with it. Not only that, but Nicole's father has become involved in a fearsome dispute with a local mob boss, a situation that looks perilously close to spiralling into bloody violence at any minute.

Included in the mix are a massively unreliable best man who yearns to reunite with his ex-girlfriend (who happens to be the bridesmaid) and an eccentric expert on the occult who has been hunting for the cursed ring for years.

With the wedding day approaching, one thing is certain… bloody chaos and supernatural vengeance will reign. On the bright side, there will be cake and dancing, too.

HELLBRIDE (cert. 15) will be released on DVD (£2.99) by Brain Damage Films on 29th March 2010. Special Features include: audio commentary by writer-director-producer Pat Higgins and director of photography Alan Ronald; Not Happy Bloopers; HELLBRIDE trailer; deleted scenes; behind the scenes.
