The director of Dog Solidiers has a new creature-feature horror – THE LAIR

Neill Marshall is back again with THE LAIR and this time it looks like he is giving us fans what we really want: more creatures

Not only was Marshall responsible for everyone’s favourite squaddy werewolf classic, Dog Soldiers, he also gave us another instant classic, one that has yet to be touched in terms of claustrophobic horror and that was The Descent. Just being trapped underground in those caves was terrifying enough. Of course, he upped the ante with some nocturnal cave-dwelling creatures. Yeah, it is safe to say that when Marshall enters the world of creature features, he is a master of his art.

Marshall’s last offering, The Reckoning really didn’t do it for me. I loved the concept but it just fell short. Each to their own, I truly hope you enjoyed it. This is why I am so looking forward to The Lair. It seems that he is going back to his roots. While we wait for the inevitable Dog Soldiers 2 to go into pre-production, I hope that The Lair can fill that void.

The Lair stars Jonathan Howard (Godzilla: King of the Monsters) Charlotte Kirk (The Reckoning), and Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica)


Sergeant Tom Hook is tasked with leading a command to find Lt. Kate Sinclair, a Royal Air Force fighter pilot shot down in Afghanistan. Sinclair, pursued by insurgents, finds refuge in a long-abandoned secret bunker and unwittingly releases a deadly man-made biological weapon – half-human, half-alien and hungry for human flesh – the Ravagers. Hook and his team, accompanied by a handful of British SAS troops must save Sinclair from the insurgents, and more importantly from the Ravagers before they overrun the area and potentially the world.”

Did someone just say half-human, half-alien flesh-eating hybrids?

I will make sure to update this artile when we hear more news on The Lair. Porduction is now underway in Hungary. As always, thanks for reading.
