“…indebted to the CGI-free horror of the Eighties, and in particular to George A. Romero’s Creepshow (1982)… as though this were a lost British segment of Romero’s anthology film.” SciFiNow
“A thirteen-minute slice of genius… enough gags and gore to put a smile on anyone’s face… Davies and her partner-in-cinematic-crime James Moran have a perfect handle on what makes an entertaining and memorable short.” Starburst

The award-winning SHAUN DOOLEY stars as Jack!
Shaun Dooley stars in the upcoming BBC One drama Gunpowder alongside Kit Harington and Liv Tyler, just the latest in a hugely impressive list of credits including a Royal Television Society North Award for Best Actor for Mark of Cain. From the heartbreak of Broadchurch and the Red Riding trilogy, to the hit movies The Woman in Black, The Awakening and Eden Lake, Shaun can always be relied upon to deliver a powerhouse performance.
He showed a sensitive yet terrifying side in Misfits, as well as a barnstorming singing voice, proving his range, flexibility and fiercely unpredictable edge. He’s also appeared in the TV shows DCI Banks, Ordinary Lies, Cuffs, Great Expectations, The Game, This is England ’90 and Exile. Whenever Shaun appears on screen, you never know what might happen next, but you can guarantee it’ll always be exciting, even when there’s a shed involved…
Shaun said of Blood Shed, “As soon as I read the title it appealed to me. I grew up on horror and schlock movies and to be honest the thought of being covered in blood and entrails from a vomiting murderous shed? Well, who in their right mind would say no?”
Sally has been a near-constant presence on British television, from I’m Alan Partridge, to Hippies, Green Wing, Miranda, and Parents. Sally co-starred in the 2016 film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, as Mrs Bennet. Since 2004, she has played the title role in the BBC Radio 4 comedy show, Clare in the Community.
