Herriot town to be horror movie setting

THE Yorkshire market town made famous by the James Herriot stories is to feature in a horror film in which teenagers doing community service are attacked by sinister villagers.

The new British horror-comedy film, Inbred, will be filmed in and around Thirsk this summer ready for a cinema release in 2011, by Midlands-based Split Second Films.

It is directed by cult film director Alex Chandon who is looking for a semi-derelict but habitable cottage or farm house and crew accommodation. Visit www.inbredmovie.com.
