Today, on the U1 Films Berlin label, UCM.ONE releases the fantasy horror film “A Deadly Legend“, the feature film debut of director Pamela Moriarty, on DVD and Blu-ray as well as on VoD-portals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
This whimsical homage to classic horror thrillers such as “Pet Sematary“, “Blair Witch Project” and “Poltergeist” takes horror fans on an entertaining rollercoaster ride full of suspense, horror, mayhem and laughs. Plus, there’s a reunion with Lori Petty (“Tank Girl“, “Orange is the New Black“) and veteran horror star Corbin Bernsen (“The Dentist 1 & 2“, “Death in the Mirror“) is also back in the genre that made him a star in the 90s.
When real estate agent Joan Huntar (Kristen Anne Ferraro) buys the site of an old summer camp at Pilgrim Lake, she is warned by old Carl Turner (Judd Hirsch): in the early 18th century, according to legend, a pagan sect conducted bloody sacrificial rituals and devil worship there. But the warnings are thrown to the wind and when the celebrations for the ground-breaking ceremony are already in full swing, chaos breaks loose: during the excavation work, a kind of Stonehenge is uncovered and the gate to hell seems to be already open! Demons from the netherworld have taken possession of many of Pilgrim’s inhabitants and are striving to bring eternal darkness upon mankind.
Only local antiques dealer Matthias Leary (Corbin Bernsen) seems to know a way to seal the portal forever….
