A bloody mix of serial-killer chiller and ancient curse shenanigans, Padraig Reynolds’ Worry Dolls will surge into London for its world premiere on Friday, August 28.

With 2011 horror flick The Rites Of Spring already under his belt, Reynolds returns for his second stint in the feature director’s chair armed with a cast that includes the likes of Christopher Wiehl and Kym Jackson.

Here’s the synopsis:

A brutal serial killer is finally gunned down in the middle of carrying out one last heinous act of bloody murder. In the maniac’s possession, a box of Guatemalan talismans, which mistakenly end up being sold as charm jewelry in Chloe’s Collectables thrift shop.

Soon those who bought the Worry Dolls begin to act strangely out of character and cause another rash of senseless slaughter. An ancient curse is consuming the city and pits a hardened detective against the clock to save his 8-year-old daughter’s life.

And here’s the trailer:
