If you go down to the woods today...
The close friendship of three teenagers crumbles at the hands of a deranged sociopath in Acolytes, a nail-biting thriller from Redball director Jon Hewitt.
James and Mark have been tormented their whole lives by local bully Gary Parker, and in their final year of high school they vow revenge. When they stumble across a serial killer they see an opportunity to blackmail him into getting rid of Gary for good.
But the teens quickly find the tables turned, as the killer leads them irrevocably down into his violent world.
