A brand new clip and poster have been unveiled for the upcoming monster feature The Dark and they show an unlikely monster lurking in the woods. The clip teases an unlikely friendship as a young “flesh-eater” befriends a boy who has been abused. She tells him a scary story about the woods they’re walking in, but I’m getting the feeling she’s talking about herself.
The story sounds similar to Let The Right One and if it can conjure up a similarly touching story about friendship, but offer lots of blood and gore too, this could be another important monster tale for our time.
The Dark comes from director Justin P. Lange and Klemens Hufnagl and stars Nadia Alexander, Toby Nichols, Karl Markovics.
