In addition to Shearsmith, Gatiss and Lowe, the cast of the new adaptation includes John Heffernan, Ralph Ineson, Philip Hill-Pearson and star of the original film, Linda Hayden.

Mark Gatiss said: “I first saw Blood on Satan’s Claw in the Friday night horror slot on Tyne Tees television, when I was a kid. I remember it vividly because it scared the life out of me. It’s so distinctly different. The pitch for the film is so strange, and it’s very much in that folk horror tradition: dark, bucolic, earthy and genuinely disquieting. It’s a fabulous tale.”

Linda Hayden added: “It’s lovely working with Reece Shearsmith and Mark Gatiss, as they’re huge fans of the film. I’m really honoured. It was always a really atmospheric piece, and the script to this new audio really captures that.”

Some scenes have already been recorded and Bafflegab Productions will soon be running a crowdfunding campaign to finance the rest of the project. We’ll let you know when it launches!
