Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City) is set to direct his first full-fledged horror film! Called Sister Darkness, the film is described as a female-driven fever dream of revenge and gothic terror with deep franchise potential.
Set in the UK in the 1930s, Sister Darkness “follows the newlywed but unhappy Alice who stumbles across her doppelganger Isla, whose existence is a mystery seeped in a tale of bloody retribution against her oppressors, the hellish supernatural nightscape, and a dread uprising against the deceitful aristocracy.” Proyas was inspired by British horror movies from the 1960s and 1970s, with deep reverence for films like The Innocents and The Legend of Hell House.
Sister Darkness is based on an original script by Proyas. The film will be shot in Australia from late-2022 through mid-2023 using a unique, fully virtual production process that Proyas’s VFX studio Hectic Foundation specially developed and refined.
