Director Justin P Lange looks positioned to make a bit of a splach with his debut feature The Dark, a character driven horror tale that aims to put a unique spin on the zombie mythos. Having stayed under the radar throughout production The Dark presented a fifteen minute reel of footage at the Frontieres presented Work In Progress screenings at the Cannes Marche du Films where North American sales rights were picked up by XYZ Films [where I work as head of international acquisitions so, yes, these were effectively snapped up by me, so full disclosure / conflict of interest / do with that what you will] and now a trio of remarkable images have been released to whet the appetite.
The Dark is the story of a murderous, flesh-eating, undead girl who haunts the remote stretch of woods where she was killed. Years later she befriends a kidnapped blind boy who changes her life.
Nadia Alexander and Toby Nichols star as the young leads opposite The Counterfeiters star Karl Markovics.
