Press Release

Poison Arrows comes from the creative minds of British actor Geoff Bell and filmmaker Simon Sprackling. The film also stars James Harkness, Ben Gardner Gray & Judith Roddy.

Documentary filmmaker, Lewis J Maitland, is going into Medway prison to meet former darts player, Rocky Goldfingers, as he completes a fifteen-year sentence for the murder of his former teammate and protégé, Perry ‘The Poison Arrow’ Peters. A crime he continues to claim he did not commit.

Poison Arrows is Maitland’s filmed record of what happens when Rocky gets out and goes in search of whoever it was that “stitched him up”. It follows Rocky’s desperate quest to find the real killer, in a hostile, disbelieving world that’s changed beyond all recognition, from the one he left behind.

At the same time Maitland is himself on a quest, to win an illusive BAFTA, by chronicling either his subject’s slow, delusional and tragic decline - into denial and psychosis - or better still, if he’s really lucky, the discovery of one of the most shocking and extraordinary sports conspiracies of all time!

The film also features notable sporting UK personalities including: Barry Hearn OBE (Chairman PDC, Matchroom Snooker & Boxing), Bobby George (Gone to Pot, The Real Marigold Hotel), Ray Stubbs (BBC, ESPN & BT Sports presenter) plus multiple real-life Professional Darts Champions including: Ray Van Barneveld, Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams, Trina Gulliver, James Wade, Mervyn King, Tony David and Andy ‘The Viking’ Fordham.

In addition, Keith Brymer-Jones, best known as a judge on the C4's Great British Pottery Throwdown (The Crying Potter) and Carrie Hilton award-winning kickboxer will make their big screen debuts.

Director Simon Sprackling said, "In 2003 I started making a film about the rise, fall and rise again of a futuristic young Darts superhero. 20 years later I completed a film about the boy's cynical team captain - the man convicted of his murder - and the documentary filmmaker who tries to prove him innocent. Its a film that has chopped and changed but refused to die and almost killed me in the process. So I am very proud and happy to see it leave home at last."

Poison Arrows will be in UK Cinemas from 20th December and available on all major Digital Download platforms from Monday 2nd January 2023
