Alan Moore writes and appears in The Show, from director Mitch Jenkins: and here’s the trailer for the upcoming Northampton-set movie.

From the brain of Alan Moore comes a movie adaptation of his work that he’s remained very much involved in. The Show – directed by Mitch Jenkins – features Tom Burke, Ellie Bamber and Babou Ceesay in its ensemble. Moore has written the script and takes an on-screen role in the film too, a movie set close to home for him in Northampton.

It’s one of many films that’s been looking for a release date in the current climate, and The Show has now been picked up by Altitude. It’s going to be releasing the film on October 18th across digital platforms, and it’s released a trailer and official synopsis.

Let’s do the trailer first…

And here’s that synopsis…

A frighteningly focussed man of many talents, passports, and identities, arrives in Northampton – a strange and haunted town in the heart of England. On a mission to locate a stolen artefact for his menacing client, Fletcher finds himself entangled in a twilight world populated with vampires, sleeping beauties, Voodoo gangsters, noir private eyes, and masked avengers. He quickly sinks into a bizarre and delirious black hole, that is hidden just beneath the surface of this seemingly quiet town. Soon enough Fletcher discovers that dreams and reality have been blurred and there might no longer be a real world to go back to-Welcome to The Show.
