Lord of Darkness comes to DVD, Digital Download and Video on Demand June 25 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. When a curious journalist digs too deep into the past of legendary serial killer Sawney Bean, he finds himself captured with no easy way to escape. Starring David Hayman (Sid and Nancy), Sam Feeney (Wounded), Gavin Mitchell (TV’s “Still Game”) and William Houston (Sherlock Holmes), the Lord of Darkness DVD, featuring deleted scenes and outtakes, will be available for the suggested retail price of $26.98.


Lord of Darkness is based on the legendary true story of Sawney Bean and his family of cannibalistic serial killers.  Intrigued by this legend, a journalist starts printing damaging articles against the family and authorities for their incompetence, and gets more than he bargained for when his girlfriend suddenly goes missing. As the clues lead him to the family’s lair, he comes face to face with Sawney and his cannibalistic family. Captured and tied up, with a surgical blade rapidly approaching his body, he’ll take matters in his own hands to ensure he is not the family’s next sacrifice.
