There is a new vampire movie on the horizon, with Line of Duty star Kelly Macdonald and Wolf Hall's Damian Lewis leading The Radleys.


Based on Matt Haig's novel of the same name, the movie follows Helen and Peter, who are hiding a deep and dark secret from their children... they are vampires!

Sky has released a first look at the exciting vampire thriller, which fans can certainly sink their teeth into as they put faces to the characters they know from the critically-acclaimed novel.

As Helen and Peter abstain from drinking blood, despite their cravings, they become "more and more bloodthirsty by the day", as per Sky's official synopsis.

But things take a turn when their teenage daughter Clara is attacked by a boy in her class and "her natural instincts take over", forcing Helen and Peter to reveal the truth.

The synopsis continues: "The shocking revelation encourages lovesick son Rowan and previously vegan Clara to question their own identity and suppressed desires.

"It’s at this pivotal juncture that Peter's twin brother Will arrives on the scene.

"A proud, practicing vampire who openly embraces his hedonistic, bloodthirsty lifestyle, Will forces the family to face their repressed urges even further. Can the family continue to hold back their hidden bloodlust, or will they give in to their true nature?"
