British horror The Darkness, from director Tharun Mohan (Baby, Purgatory State of Mind) is set to chill you to the bone. This darkly gripping thriller follows a young couple whose escape to Ireland becomes a deadly dance with demons, death and deception and makes its UK premiere on digital this May from Reel2Reel Films.
Spanning one hundred years, and filled with mythology and folklore we start in the present day where writer Lisa (Amelia Eve – The Haunting Of Bly Manor, Enterprice) and entrepreneur David (Cyril Blake – The Waiting Game, Z-List) are desperate for a brief escape from their hectic London lives. They take up residence in an old remote home in Ballyvadlea, Ireland, where Lisa has plans to start writing her new book and David has a business plan to work on…but the house has other ideas.
When strange things start to occur Lisa uses her investigative skills and discovers a memoir of a woman called Niav (Katherine Hartshorne – Happiest Day, Chaos In The Spectrum) and delves deep into the past. But unlocking long closed doors has awoken a dormant evil spirit…and now the nightmare begins.
As the couple find themselves embroiled in a century long mystery of possessions, changelings and witchcraft, their only hope of help comes in the form of a strange priest named George.
Can they escape the demonic entity and the dark past deep in the walls of this terror filled domain?
The Darkness is a must-see haunting creep-filled chiller. Available on digital May 3rd 2021
