Brit actor Danny Dyer is certainly adding the genre credits to his resume of late. After previously starring in ‘Severance’, ‘Doghouse’ and ‘Dead Cert’ in the past few years he’s now already signed on to zombie apocalypse movie ‘Devil’s Playground’, immortality horror ‘The Asphyx’ and now of course Asham Kamboj’s ‘Basement’. The movie is set to hit UK theatres on 20 August and just 3 days later on DVD (don’t forget to enter our giveaway!). And now finally a trailer and an extended plot synopsis has hit the web-ways. You can check it all out below.
Dyer stars alongside Jimi Mistry, Emily Beecham (below), Kierston Wareing, Lois Winstone and Christopher Ellison.
“Driving home from an anti-war protest, five demonstrators – Gary (Dyer), Sarah (Wareing), Saffron (Winstone), Derek (Mistry) and his girlfriend Pru (Beecham) – are forced to make a pit stop in the middle of the forest in order to answer nature’s call. Taking the opportunity to stretch their legs, the individuals wander off briefly with Gary, Sarah and Pru returning to the car to find Derek and Saffron missing. Their search for their companions leads them to a metal hatch leading down to a dank and dirty underground shelter. Believing Derek and Saffron must have gone down into it and somehow become lost or trapped, Gary convinces the others follow, despite Pru and Sarah’s reservations.
In the eerie darkness of the shelter, their worst fear becomes a reality when the hatch clanks shut above them, locked and leaving them no option but to walk deeper into the basement’s depths in search for another way out. Worse, in the shadows lurks an unseen terror that will soon have all five friends fighting for the lives unaware that one of their number knows much more about their circumstances than they are letting on.”
