AS Valentine's Eve approaches, County Durham filmmaker Dean Midas Maynard has announced the return of one of his iconic horror creations - Eve Valentine.

Valentine's Eve 1 and 2 were part of the Rag Dolly franchise and have been shown around the world to an audience of millions and won awards.

Dean, from Willington, said: "The Rag Dolly and Eve Valentine franchise is over, but Eve lives on and is set for a memorable comeback, later in the year."

He said Eve Valentine has become so popular, she now has her own official merchandise and streaming platforms are also promoting her on Valentine's Eve, similar to how Michael Myers is always shown at Halloween.

All Hallows Eve Rebirth will be filmed entirely around the North East, ready for a Halloween release.
