IFC Midnight’s haunted house shocker Darkness Rising hits screens later this month, so to give you a taster, they’ve released a set of new stills.
The film was directed by Austin Reading, and stars Californication’s Tara Holt, Katrina Law (Apparition, TV’s Arrow), Bryce Johnson (Willow Creek) and cult favourite (and brother of Sam) Ted Raimi (Blood Rage, Intruder, Ash vs Evil Dead).
A house’s horrifying secrets are resurrected in this blood-drenched supernatural nightmare. For years, Madison (Holt) has been tormented by the memories of a traumatic childhood incident: when she was a girl, her mother murdered her younger sister, and nearly killed Madison, too. Joined by her fiancé (Johnson) and cousin (Law), the now-adult Madison returns to the home where it happened just before it’s slated to be demolished. Seeking closure, the trio instead finds themselves ensnared by the same evil presence that drove Madison’s mother to unthinkable violence. It soon looks like history may repeat itself…
Darkness Rising will haunt selected US cinemas, VOD and digital platforms on June 30th.
