There are familiar faces from classic British comedy lurking in the supporting cast of this new fright feature.

MONTY PYTHON regular Carol Cleveland and THE YOUNG ONES star Adrian Edmondson have roles in THE FACILITY, which Uncork’d Entertainment releases on DVD and digital December 8. Written and directed by Matt Mitchell, this sequel to 2018’s THE RIZEN also features Harriet Madeley, Michael Fatogun, Sarine Sofair, Kevin Leslie, Sophie Miller-Sheen, Marcus Bronzy, James Barnes, Lewis Saunderson, Clarice Burton and Connor Williams. The synopsis: “In 1955, NATO and the Allied Forces conducted secret, occult experiments in a bid to win the Arms Race. They succeeded, but what they unleashed almost tore our world apart. Now a group of young urban explorers and a private military unit could become the final pieces in a 60-year plan to reopen a door that should have stayed closed.”
