Storyline

Manchester. Present day. The supernatural crime hub of the twenty-first century, home of Detective Mark 'Mac' Macready. When Macready wakes from a coma he was brutally put into by an unseen enemy, he is met with the unsettling news that his wife Christina is missing and a mass murdering monster has been on the rampage, which the press has affectionately dubbed 'The Archangel'. Realizing there is a connection between his wife's disappearance and the arrival of 'The Archangel' the intrepid detective descends into a paranoid, frenzied search through Manchester's dark supernatural underbelly. It is up to Mac, and Mac alone, to find his missing wife, solve the case and bring the merciless Archangel to cold blooded justice. Written by Anonymous

Awesome comedy horror
28 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to be invited to a launch party for this short movie just after it was released online for free public viewing.

It is a short film but I'd say it's the perfect length for what it is. It's a tongue in cheek affair that reminds me of Evil Dead and Shaun of the Dead. I can imagine Bruce Campbell or Simon Pegg + Nick Frost loving this! Being set in Manchester was also a big attraction to me as it's near to where I live. I'm not saying that this would detract from the enjoyment for anyone else watching Mark Macready and the Archangel Murders but it was an added bonus for me.

I don't really want to give anything about the storyline as I think it needs to be watched (after all it's only around 30 minutes long).

If you like comedy / horror I'd say this is a must watch. The production is absolutely great and all the people involved in it's making have done a fantastic job on such a limited budget.

I'm looking forward to seeing bigger budget, longer movies from all of the guys and gals responsible for this in the near future.
