Trailer: Lewis, Rollins, and McHattie star in vampire film Dreamland

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

An intriguingly strange trailer has arrived online for director Bruce McDonald's vampire film DREAMLAND, which is set to receive a DVD and Digital release in the UK on April 13th. There doesn't appear to be any US distribution information available for this one yet, but after watching the trailer embedded above I'm hoping to hear some release news very soon.

Written by Tony Burgess and Patrick Whistler, DREAMLAND stars McDonald's PONTYPOOL collaborator Stephen McHattie, who takes the lead and plays two different roles. McHattie is joined in the cast by Juliette Lewis, Henry Rollins, and Tómas Lemarquis. 

The film has the following synopsis: 

On the orders of his boss, the low-level gangster Hercules (Rollins), hitman Johnny Deadeyes (McHattie) must cut off the pinkie finger of celebrated jazz trumpeter The Maestro (McHattie, again) just before an important, high-profile gig. Seems simple enough, but the gig is a wedding at the fortified palace of crime queen The Countess (Lewis) and Johnny isn’t quite feeling it. Hercules is moving up from standard gangster stuff to human trafficking and the reason for the pinky request is more of a slight than anything else. Like all movie hitmen, Johnny is thinking of getting out of the game and this job has convinced him it’s time to retire. Throw in The Countess’ vampire brother (Lemarquis), his child bride and the wedding from hell, you’ll think you’ve imagined it all, but no, it’s just a visit to Dreamland.

I'm looking forward to watching the cast bring this crazy story of hitmen and vampires to life. The UK DVD can be pre-ordered HERE.
