We've been lucky enough to sneak a quick glimpse at some footage from the new Hammer Horror film Beyond The Rave, and we can safely say we're really excited at seeing lots more. We can't give too much away at the moment (we could tell you, but we'd have our throats ripped out soon after), but rest assured all the right ingredients (vampires, blood, naked women, sweat-soaked raves) are present and correct.
We'll be bringing you all the news on this great project as we get it, but in the meantime, scroll below for one of the first images released from the film. Beyond The Rave stars Nora-Jane Noone (The Descent), Jamie Dornan, Tamer Hassan (The Ferryman), Les Simpson (Doomsday), Steve Sweeney (Lock, Stock) and features appearances from Sadie Frost and Ingrid Pitt.

Beyond The Rave follows the last hours of freedom of local soldier Ed, who is flying out to Iraq the following morning. With the help of his best friend Necro, he spends his last night in the UK tracking down his missing girlfriend Jen, last seen partying with a bizarre group of hardcore night-time ravers led by the mysterious Melech.
But as he catches up with Jen at a party in a remote forest, Ed discovers that Melech’s crowd, who are hosting the event, are looking for more than a night of fun, and that not everyone will make it through to dawn…
Directed by Matthias Hoene and featuring FX from Tristan Versluis, Beyond The Rave is being produced for Hammer by Pure Grass Films as an online serial with a view to a future DVD release.
