shepherd film
Writer/director Russell Owens' horror premieres at next month's London Film Festival.

Written and directed by Russell Owens, Shepherd stars Tom Hughes as a widower who takes a job as a shepherd on a deserted island. But it seems supernatural forces are at play on the island, and he's soon questioning his sanity. Kate Dickie, Gaia Weiss and Greta Scacchi also star.

Shepherd will have its World Premiere at BFI London Film Festival on 14th October and will be in UK/ROI cinemas from 5th November.

"I've followed the BFI London Film Festival for decades, so to actually be a part of it is surreal and a massive honour," said Owens. "I can't think of a better platform to bring Shepherd to an audience and I'm over the moon."

Check out the new trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

Running from grief after the mysterious death of his wife, Eric Black takes a job as a shepherd. Trapped alone on a majestic weather-beaten island with an ominous secret. One mans spiralling madness meets a vengeful supernatural force. What starts as the perfect wind-swept escape becomes a race to save his sanity and his life.
