The first teaser trailer for the Joe Dante produced Kickstarter success, Dark, has now been unleashed, and its a good one!
The minute long teaser is filled with nightmarish imagery and a seriously haunting atmosphere of dread, and the trailer is highly effective. Relying on zero dialogue, this adds real menace to what unfolds on screen as it builds to its sinister and alarming climax.
Nick Basile (“American Carny”) directs from a script written by Elias (“Gut”).
Kathryn Belli, Dave Boulton, Basile, and Elias will produce alongside executive producer Joe Dante (“Gremlins”) and his company Renfield Productions.
Whitney Able (Age of Kali, Monsters) and Alexandra Breckenridge (American Horror Story) lead the cast. Able stars as a disturbed young woman who must confront her worst fears when she finds herself trapped alone in a New York City loft during the 2003 blackout.
Michael Eklund (“The Call”) and Brandon Sexton (“Boys Don’t Cry”) round out the cast of the psychological thriller Dark.
Set in NYC during the blackout of 2003, 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.
