‘The Strangers’ directorBryan Bertinois back with what I can only assume will be a slow building sense of dread in his latest film ‘The Dark and the Wicked. Now we have an official trailer to get another glimpse at what might be in store for us from Shudder and RLJE Films.
‘The Strangers’ remains one of my favorite films in the last 15 years. From the masked villains to the atmospheric sound design it was truly a great piece of modern horror film making. ‘The Dark and the Wicked’ seems to fall in line with that sense of dread I mentioned before that ‘The Strangers’ invoked back in 2008. Check out the synopsis below to judge for yourself.
On a secluded farm, a man is slowly dying. Bedridden and fighting through his final breaths, his wife is slowly succumbing to overwhelming grief. To help their mother and say goodbye to their father, siblings Louise (Marin Ireland) and Michael (Michael Abbott Jr.) return to their family farm. It doesn’t take long for them to see that something’s wrong with mom, though—something more than her heavy sorrow. Gradually, as their own grief mounts, Louise and Michael begin suffering from a darkness similar to their mother’s, marked by waking nightmares and a growing sense that something evil is taking over their family.
‘The Dark and the Wicked’will be available in On Demand, Digital, and Theaters starting November 6, 2020.
