A creepy new trailer has been revealed to celebrate the US release of horror feature, Out of the Dark, and you’ll find the trailer and US poster below.
Yes the trailer is pretty generic, but it has some decent jump scares and a general sense of doom, and the atmosphere is engulfing and claustrophobic. Its a well crafted trailer and, I must admit, highly effective.
Out of the Dark arrives in US cinemas on 27th February.
Starring Julia Stiles, Scott Speedman, and Stephen Rea, Out of the Dark is a ghost story set in South America, where a young family’s new life turns from promising to terrifying when they are forced to confront ancient legends, ghosts, and a haunting family secret.
The film was Executive Produced by Jeff Skoll, Jonathan King, Roy Azout, and Nick Spicer, Produced by Belén Atienza, Cristian Conti, Enrique López Lavigne and Andrés Calderón from a screenplay by Alex Pastor & David Pastor, and Javier Gullón, and was directed by Lluís Quílez. Out of the Dark was shot on location in Colombia and is a Spanish-Colombian co-production.
Sarah Harriman’s (Stiles) family has relocated from London to a small town in Colombia to take over her father’s business. Moving into a beautiful old home and having her father nearby, their new life in Santa Clara seems like a promising place to raise their young daughter, Hannah. But Sarah and her husband, Paul (Speedman), soon learn of an ancient legend that haunts the town and has created a culture where ghosts have become the answer to anything that goes wrong.
As they settle into their new surroundings, Hannah begins to act strangely, wandering off into the jungle as if following something, and suddenly falls ill. When Sarah and Paul start seeing disfigured ghost-like creatures around the house, Hannah disappears, sending them on a frantic search to find her. As they delve deeper into the town’s superstitions, they discover a shocking secret about their family and must uncover the truth in order to save their daughter.
