It’s been 15 years since Krays director Philip Ridley's last film was released.
That was The Passion of Darkly Noon , and since then he’s been expressing himself creatively in the theatre.
Now, the prodigal son returns with psychological horror film Heartless , starring young up-and-comer Jim Sturgess of Fifty Dead Men Walking and Across the Universe .
The flick’s just got its first, natty trailer, up here at Yahoo .
In Heartless , Sturgess plays a young man with a heart-shaped birthmark on one side of his face. He’s devastatingly paranoid about it, and just wants to lead a ‘normal’ life.
When he discovers demons living on the streets of London, he enters a dark underworld where he makes a Faustian pact to have his birthmark removed. And we all know how pacts like that work out...
Check Heartless out when it hits cinemas on 21 May – and then DVD just three days later.
