A proof-of-concept teaser has just dropped for Sherwood Horror, a project created by John Regan in the hope it will eventually become a feature film. The story is centered around ex-con, Rob Locksley, who joins forces with his old hunting buddies to wage war against the vampires who have taken over their town.

Regan has basically hijacked the characters from Robin Hood and dropped them into the framework of a contemporary horror setting, creating a new twist on an old legend. The tone of is said to be similar to films like Predator, Aliens, The Terminator and Mad Max, with inspiration from filmmakers like John Carpenter, John Milius, George Miller and James Cameron.
