It tells the tale of Petronella (a Scottish/Romany girl) and Fergal (her mysterious Irish traveller boyfriend). As their doomed relationship plays out, a Beast stalks the estate, killing locals, working its way towards our protagonists. Meanwhile Cathal and Liam, two mysterious travellers from Ireland use ritual and magic on a blood hunt. Mary, Fergal’s mother performs ritual and magic of her own. As Cathal comes face to face with Mary in a vicious finale we know one thing: the Beast must die.
Scottish horror film, I had to turn on the subtitles as I couldn't understand a word they were saying, accents were very thick. It did drag on in some parts. Fergal and his mother are on the run from a man who is bent on killing them both, we don't exactly know why at first but as things unfold we realize supernatural forces are at hand. Fergal meets a girl who lives next door named Patronella who quickly becomes attached to him. I didn't buy the love story between Fergal and Petronella, it all seemed to be too rushed and not sure how she could have fallen in with him so quickly. The film itself is very atmospheric, it's got a 28 Days later sort of vibe to it but without the zombies, instead we have witches and werewolves. This film had it's moments, as with any horror film there is a lot of nice gore in it.
