Welcome to Hoxford - The Movie

Before you click play, please be warned that this contains strong language and scenes of a scary nature! Yet it is so wonderfully done (for a fan film) that I thought I would take Kuriositas out of its safe zone for a short while.

Raymond Delgado is no ordinary prisoner. On a good day he'll take the time to tell you he's the son of Zeus before he tears out your jugular. On a bad day, you won't even have a moment to call out for help.  After a yet another "incident" Raymond has been transferred to Hoxford, a correctional facility and mental institution known for its radical methods.

At Hoxford, Raymond’s not the only predator. Come nightfall, under a full moon, bloodcurdling screams pierce through the darkness of the prison courtyard. It's hunting hour! As the other Hoxford prisoners huddle in the obscurity of their prison cells trembling in fright, Ray cracks a smile. He thrives on confrontation. Lock a human beast in a cage with a legendary monster and, in your opinion. Who will devour? And who will be devoured?

Directed by Julien Mokrani and written by Samuel Bodin Welcome To Hoxford stars Jason Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher and Arben Bajraktaraj. It is adapted from Ben Templesmith's comic published by IDW.
