BARNSLEY actor Shaun Dooley will appear alongside Sally Phillips in a short, comedy horror film about a man-eating shed which will be shown at film festivals in the UK and abroad.

Shaun, 43, from Cudworth, was cast as Jack in the film Blood Shed, and Sally, who has starred in Bridget Jones’ Diary and Smack the Pony, plays the character of Helen.

Jack loves a bargain, and he also loves sheds. When he buys suspiciously cheap second-hand parts to build his dream shed, he and long-suffering wife Helen find they’ve got more than they bargained for - a killer shed with an appetite for blood.

As the body count rises, and the shed’s ferocious appetite grows, Jack is faced with a horrifying dilemma.

Shaun said: “I’m a big fan of Sally’s from Alan Partridge and Smack the Pony, so I was really excited to be working with her.”
