JOHN COCKSLEDGE’s stag do is about to go very, very wrong! On route to a night of drunken merriment, John faces dissension in the group between Doug; John’s best man and Clive his geeky old school friend, who has known him longer than any of them. Then their mini bus veers off the road into a field, crashing into an exploding cow.


The driver is trapped and wounded inside the crumpled van and the gang are now stranded in the countryside with no communication with the outside world.

Blackly humorous and Laugh out loud funny

Events spiral out of control and soon they find themselves fighting for their lives against a group of psychotic gun toting, chainsaw wielding maniacs who will do anything to keep their arm’s dealing activities secret. Will anyone survive the bloody battle and will John get through the night and make it to the church on time despite his oldest friend’s incredible revelation?

Think THE HANGOVER meets DELIVERANCE but set in rural England.
