Description by OLDIES.com:

A journalist investigates the desecration of a church and uncovers an underground pagan sect, but how is this linked to a fatal accident at the steelworks, the popularity of a charismatic politician and a gang of local gypsies? As the journalist delves deeper, he uncovers layers of conspiracy and terrifying evil.

Product Description:

This compelling low-budget horror-fantasy from Welsh filmmaker Julian Richards made a splash at several fantasy film festivals, where it often garnered a more favorable reception than Hollywood big-budget product. The plot follows the investigations of English journalist Frazer Truick (Craig Fairbrass) into the disappearance of a colleague's brother in South Wales. His snooping unearths the elaborate political machinations of a long-standing, ultra-conservative faction known as "Regeneration," whose followers, under the leadership of businessman David Keller (Jon Finch), intend to return Wales to its ancient Celtic ways... including the practice of human sacrifices. Insidious plot twists abound, all of which point to Truick's unknowing role in the sect's master plan. Richards' excellent script may draw its thematic inspiration from THE WICKER MAN, and those familiar with that film may not be entirely surprised by the climax; the story nevertheless contains many unconventional surprises, and it maintains an effective balance between political allegory and pure suspense. Further enhanced by excellent photography and an intense performance from Fairbrass, DARKLANDS represents a remarkable debut from an assured genre talent.

Rating 4.0 Slaughtered pigs and pagan rituals Movie Lover: from Miami, Florida -- November, 25, 2012

A Welsh journalist returns home from London to investigate a mysterious industrial accident, unearthing a conspiracy linking nationalist politicians, slaughtered pigs and pagan rituals. The blend of timely political comment with bloody action set pieces is finely balanced and the diverse musical score well chosen
