After a bit of a wait, paranoia thriller Dark has finally secured a US release, it was announced this week. The film will be available through VOD from June 7th.
Dark is the debut narrative feature from director Nick Basile, who helmed 2008 doc American Carny: True Tales from the Circus Sideshow. It is written by Basile and Elias (Gut), and executive produced by none other than genre hero Joe Dante (Piranha, Gremlins).
Monsters’ Whitney Able leads the cast, which also includes Alexandra Breckenridge (The Walking Dead, American Horror Story), Michael Eklund (Bates Motel) and Brendan Sexton III (Session 9).
Kate, a struggling 30-something model with a troubled past, has just moved into her girlfriend Leah’s Brooklyn loft, but already doubts about their relationship have begun to loom. When Leah leaves for the weekend, Kate unexpectedly finds herself alone in the apartment in the midst of the worst blackout in North American history. As darkness falls over the city, Kate’s paranoia grows and she begins to believe someone in the building is stalking her. With no one to help her and escape out of reach, Kate is forced to confront her deepest fears as she fights to survive through the night.
This stark, unsettling trailer suggests we could be in for something truly chilling.
