Delve deep into the darkly twisted mind of America’s most notorious serial killer
Starring Elijah Wood and Luke Kirby
‘Gripping… Kirby’s performance puts its queasy hooks in you’ – Variety
‘An electric duo, bonded by terrible, impenetrable truths that would make any “normal” person shudder’ – Indie Wire
‘For the unforgettable performances and skin-crawling realism alone… a must-see’ – Film Inquiry
Delve into the dark and twisted mind of one of America’s most notorious serial killers – Ted Bundy – in No Man of God, a darkly disturbing new feature that’s set for its UK Premiere at FrightFest 2021, followed by its digital release on 13 September and on DVD and Special Edition Blu-ray on 25 October 2021.
The film follows a rarely seen moment in criminal history, after Bundy was sentenced to death and waited to meet his maker, the FBI sent in one of their top analysts to interrogate the murderer to try and find out the full extent of his crimes, his motives and to find answers for his heinous crimes to help the victims’ families.
Directed by Amber Sealey (How to Cheat) and penned by C. Robert Cargill (Doctor Strange) based on actual interview transcripts, the critically acclaimed film features outstanding performances from a stellar cast that sees Elijah Wood as FBI analyst Bill Hagmaier, the man tasked by FBI boss (Robert Patrick) to get inside the mind of the infamous killer, Ted Bundy played in an unnervingly convincing turn by Luke Kirby.
Bundy’s (Luke Kirby – The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Halloween: Resurrection) reign of terror – that saw him kidnap, rape and murder many young women and girls, across numerous states and many years – ended with multiple death sentences, with the full extent of his crimes still to be realised. Bill Hagmaier (Elijah Wood – TheLord of the Rings, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) was tasked with understanding how truly dangerous Bundy was and to give solace to victims’ families. Taken from real-life transcripts and revolving around a singular interrogation room, the mind of Bundy is explored in a lesser known period of his life on death row, from 1984 to the day of his execution in 1989.
With time running out before the serial killer is given the chair, will Hagmaier be able to get closure for the families searching for answers?
See the real face of evil in No Man of God, a truly terrifying real-crime horror.

Blue Finch Film Releasing and Magic Monkey Films are excited to announce that they are bringing Christmas cheer to the UK early with ‘Lost At Christmas‘ arriving in cinemas from 4th December – ahead of the film’s digital release on the 7th!
Directed by BAFTA nominee Ryan Hendrick, the film is based on the acclaimed short film Perfect Strangers and is Scotland’s first traditional Christmas movie. Featuring an incredible cast, including, Sylvester McCoy (Dr Who / The Hobbit), Natalie Clark (The Last Bus), Kenny Boyle, Sanjeev Kohli (Still Game) & Clare Grogan (Gregory’s Girl) to name a few.
Lost At Christmas is set in the remote Scottish town of Fort William, on Christmas Eve, when life is turned upside down for Jen (Natalie Clark) and Rob (Kenny Boyle). Suddenly finding themselves heartbroken, single and stranded, they team up to try and reach home 100 miles away to be with their families. “Borrowing” Jen’s now ex-boyfriend’s classic car, the pair hit the road, but it’s not long before the weather turns for the worse forcing them to continue their journey on foot.
Bickering and bonding across the snowy Moors of Glencoe, they eventually arrive at a remote inn where they meet other guests dead set on avoiding the traditional Christmas joy. However, as Christmas Day draws closer, will happiness emerge and draw Jen and Rob together?

*Original title on IMDb is Perfect Strangers due to it being based on a short film with that name from 2015*
Back in 2013 Cineworld started doing Secret Screenings for Unlimited members and by 2018 we had reached the 10th Secret Screening. In the past week we have had announcements for two taking place in July 2019! So I thought this was the best time to have a look back at the first ten films we got as special previews.
Cineworld have slightly changed the way they used to do them as for the early ones we got clues over the week building up to the screening date, but they stopped doing that and changed the running time and standard age of 15. This meant that we had a child free preview of Incredibles 2 and that was quite frankly outstanding!
Something they usually do in a very clever way is having the screenings not long before a huge release and people get taken in that it is going to be that film (yes, thinking about to Star Wars and it was actually In the Heart of the Sea). Not forgetting that we have also had a preview of a film that went on to become the Best Picture Oscar winner, Green Book. So we have certainly had many different genres in the Secret Screenings.
You wait seven months for another Secret Screening from Cineworld and in less than a week they announce two! So we no have number 12 on the way only twenty days after number 11! I have therefore decided to put together a second blog post and have left some films for this one as well with the dates fitting but also extending it!
Date: Monday 29th July 2019
As usual I will try and put together some guesses on films that it could be, my track record isn’t great but I do love looking forward and seeing which films are due to be released around this time. The 10th Secret Screening turned out to be Oscar Best Picture winner Green Book!
