Steps may be best known for cheesy dance moves and insanely catchy and glittery pop, but it seems band member Lee Latchford-Evans has a whole other side we hadn't seen before.

And when we say another side, we mean full-blown bloody horror. '5,6,7,8' this ain't.

The singer is starring in The Rizen, a horror film set at the height of the Cold War, where experiments intended to help fight the enemy don't go quite as planned.

He plays a soldier, and going by the movie's trailer, he doesn't look best pleased. C'mon Lee, where are all the smiles and synchronised dance moves?

Maybe a dose of 'Tragedy' will stop the monstrous horror from inflicting terror on the world? If you never try, you never know.

This isn't the first time the star has dipped his toes into acting, having starred on stage in shows such as Grease. He also has credits in a few (poorly received) movies from 2008.

So what of The Rizen? Well, the synopsis reads: "The year is 1955. NATO and the Allied Forces have been conducting secret experiments in a bid to win the Arms Race. Now they have finally succeeded but what the Army has unleashed threatens to tear our world apart.

"One woman must lead the only survivors past horrors that the military seem to have no way to control - and fight to close what should never have been opened."

Apparently, it's like Enid Blyton meets Resident Evil too, so we do not know how to feel, to be honest.

However, it seems Lee is in esteemed – if comedic – company to fight off what looks like a bandaged monster, with The Young Ones' Adrian Edmondson and Smack The Pony's Sally Phillips also among the cast.

The Rizen will be shown at the Sci-Fi London Film Festival on May 6.
