A Horrifying Preview of the UK's Patrol Men

Patrol Men is a horror flick from CMS Film, which was created by university students in Dorset, England. The film had an appearance at Cannes this year and now this independent film has some poster art, which highlights the thrilling atmosphere of a "remote island" and a nighttime group of men who enforce a strange curfew (Trailer). An early trailer for the film can be seen below, which shows the Patrol Men wearing gas masks, while hiding their identities. All the details are below.

The synopsis for Patrol Men here:

"A remote Island, located just off the coast of the British Isles- population under five thousand. At first sight, ‘Peyton Island’ is the perfect setting for a quiet life. Unspoiled by the decadence of modern living, Peyton is guided by ‘old time’ values and a solid community spirit. However, when the sun goes down, ‘Peyton’ is a victim to the night. A strict curfew prohibits any residents from going out at night- the curfew was established by the Major and is enforced by the Patrol Men.

Enter Jess, a fifteen year old male with a strong intellect and a rebellious nature to match. Jess has recently moved to Peyton from the ‘mainland’ and the authoritative nature of the Island is not to his taste. However, he is calmed by Alex, a sweet natured teen, with an innocence and naivety that Jess respects. Alex has lived on the Island for her whole life and like all of the other residents, she doesn’t question the curfew. However, after a small argument between the two, Jess is embroiled and decides to prove that “there is nothing to fear in the night”.

Jess disappears" (Trailer).
