The Birch – A New Horror from Bloody Cuts and Crypt TV

After what seems like an age of waiting (although it’s only been a couple of weeks) it is with immense pleasure that we unveil to you all – THE BIRCH.

Bloody Cuts’ Writers/Directors/Producers Ben Franklin and Anthony Melton have teamed up with Crypt TV to bring you another delicous slice of terror. The Birch is based on a story by the monster maestro Cliff Wallace and shot by Bloody Cuts lens warrior Jonny Franklin.

A full post and further details will be released in a few days right here, but for the moment please just pop on over to CryptTV and check out ‘The Birch’ alongside their monsterous managerie of other ghoulish goodness.

Finally, a huge THANKS to all the cast and crew that worked on ‘The Birch’ with such commitment and professionalism, ‘The Birch’ wouldn’t have been summoned without you.
