Indiewire have shared the very first teaser trailer for upcoming horror feature, Dark Was the Night, and the deadly serious fright flick looks pretty intense. The atmosphere on display here is not a million miles from Jim Mickle’s exceptional remake, We Are What We Are, with an overpowering sense of dread, and a lurking darkness hovering over the entire well crafted trailer.
It doesn’t give too much away, but merely hints at some serious bad stuff going on in the local woods, and a logging company have just unleashed said evil on an ever paranoid town. The trailer looks to keep things nicely grounded, and bring serious, powerful horror to our beloved genre.
Dark Was the Night is directed by Jack Heller, and was written by Tyler Hisel. The cast includes Kevin Durand, Lukas Haas, Bianca Kajlich, Sabina Gadecki, Steve Agee, Heath Freeman and Nick Damici.
The film will have its world premiere at next months L.A Screamfest.
A long slumbering evil is awoken in the trees, outside the remote town of Maiden Woods. Isolated and Threatened it sets its sites on the townspeople, as Sheriff Paul Shields (Kevin Durand) attempts to overcome the demons of his past, so that he may protect those that he loves.
