Carter has found the perfect location to shoot his zombie movie set during the Irish famine- a country house on an island off the coast of Mayo. The only catch is he has it for just 3 days. So when his lead actor drops out the day before shooting starts, Carter is faced with a difficult decision- pull the plug on his dream project or cast the mysterious Vardell, an actor of incendiary talent but someone with a dark past that he knows precious little about. As events unfold on set, Carter soon suspects that he may have made a grave mistake…
Visceral, blackly comic and genuinely scary, “Revenant” stars Patrick O’Donnell.
‘Roche’s script is a spikenard of playful savagery…a comically fruitful idea combining gothic horror gore with a satire on movie-making and acting.’ The Irish Independent
