Peaky Blinders actor Jack Rowan stars alongside Derry Girls' Louisa Harland in a new vampire horror movie, titled Boys from County Hell.

The project, which is described as being "rich in Celtic atmosphere", originally received its world premiere at last year's Tribeca Film Festival and is directed by Chris Baugh.

An official synopsis reads: "Welcome to Six Mile Hill, a sleepy Irish backwater whose only claim to fame is the somewhat dubious local legend that Bram Stoker once spent a night in the local pub. It's home to Eugene Moffat, a young man who fills most of his days drinking pints with his friends and pranking tourists who come to visit the gravesite of Abhartach, a legendary Irish vampire some believe to have inspired Dracula.

"When a personal tragedy forces Eugene to go and work for his gruff, no-nonsense father he finds himself on the site of a controversial new road development that threatens to destroy the town's livelihood."

As you've probably guessed already, a spine-chilling twist is waiting in the wings as Eugene and the crew tear down a famous cairn believed to be Abhartach's final resting place.

Soon enough, they're fighting for their lives when a dark force infects one of their workmates – let's hope they packed some garlic.

Boys from County Hell will be released in cinemas this summer.
