Vampires have taken the centre stage recently in films like Twilight where they have been romanticised, but British made flick, THE HARSH LIGHT OF DAY, is a much darker and brutal tale of vampirism.
THE HARSH LIGHT OF DAY is a genre splicing journey into the depths of inhumanity and beyond. The film is a horror-thriller with a story of revenge and loss at its heart. Occult writer Daniel (Dan Richardson) suffers a brutal attack in which his wife is murdered and he is left paralyzed. When the Police fail to find his attackers, Daniel is offered a unique but terrifying chance of revenge when he encounters a Vampire (Giles Alderson) – but at a great cost. If Daniel wants to take revenge on his wife’s murderers, he will have to sacrifice his own soul and turn his back on humanity, to become one of the undead. THE HARSH LIGHT OF DAY is a vampire film like no other, full of emotional conflict and mortal tragedy, from the point of view of a heart-broken man forced to extremes – a reluctant vampire.
THE HARSH LIGHT OF DAY is due out in UK cinemas nationwide on 8th June followed by DVD release on 16th July 2012.
