Rutger HauerThe UK thriller The Reverend has dipped in and out of our news for a few years.  Now we can tell you that the film is officially making its way to the U.S. DVD on February 11th from Level 33.

The film stars Stuart Brennan, Tamer Hassan, Rutger Hauer, Shane Richie, Edmund Kingsley, Doug Jones, Emily Booth and Simon Phillips.

Fresh from seminary school, a new Reverend embarks on his first parish: A small, low-maintenance chapel based in the idyllic setting of a quiet country village. While on the surface the village seems to be a peaceful parish, with perfect residents, soon it becomes apparent that something more sinister lurks beneath the façade of a local businessman. On a wet, cold night, a mysterious girl visits the Reverend at the chapel. She is welcomed in warmly, but soon it becomes apparent that her visit is not for sanctuary but to deliver a message, a message in the form of a deep, bloody bite…  Awoken with an unknown, uncontrollable thirst, the confused Reverend can’t find any evidence of the girl from the night before. With nothing but his thirst and memory of the bite, the Reverend embarks on a mandate to clean up the village and the neighboring estate by preaching or feasting.
