Russell Owen’s Shepherd (UK, Russell Owen, 2021) had its home release on 21 February 2022, entering the UK iTunes horror chart at #3.

The film is a supernatural chiller starring Tom Hughes and Kate Dickie which was filmed on the windswept Isle of Mull. It’s generated a fair bit of buzz, with a healthy 75% on Rotten Tomatoes at the time of writing and a film-of-the-week accolade from Mark Kermode during its cinema run.

The IMDb summary is as follows:

‘Eric Black is lost after the mysterious death of his adulterous wife. Running from his past to a new job as a Shepherd, he finds himself trapped alone on a majestic, weather-beaten island with an ominous secret. One mans spiraling madness meets a vengeful supernatural force. What starts as the perfect wind-swept escape becomes a race to save his sanity and his life.’

As of yesterday, it’s available on Amazon Prime, iTunes and Blu-ray. You can watch the terrifying trailer below.
