Claire, haunted by the abduction and murder of her best friend during childhood, faces her past as the convicted killer is about to be released after serving his sentence. Twenty-five years later, Bill, the father of the murdered boy, seeks Claire’s help to ensure the killer remains behind bars. They enlist psychic Eleanor and venture into the haunted moor, believed to be the final resting place of Bill’s son. There, they uncover more than the ghosts of dead children—something dark and malevolent stirs beneath the surface.

Director Chris Cronin’s Vision:
Chris Cronin, making his feature-length directorial debut, has garnered widespread acclaim for The Moor, following its world premiere at Pigeon Shrine FrightFest. The film was part of the prestigious ‘First Blood’ strand and received nominations for Best Director, Best Film, and won Best Scare at Total Film’s FrightFest Awards 2023.

Cronin commented, “My aim with this story was to create an original horror film set in my home county of Yorkshire. Instead of delving into the fictional murders themselves, I focused on the aftermath and how something so terrible affects lives and relationships. What happens when so much grief and guilt are left unresolved? As a genre filmmaker, I wanted to explore those important questions through tension and suspense. Genre lets us take a look at very human and painful situations and make them larger than life, forcing us to re-examine them. Thankfully, most of us don’t know what it’s like to experience a tragedy as great as Bill and Claire’s, but through the medium of horror, we can elevate how awful it would be, making the audience really feel it.”

Release Details:

  • The Moor will be in UK cinemas from 14th June.
  • Available on Digital HD from 1st July.
