Dark Was the Night Trailer

"Something lives in our woods… And it's looking for food, and it found us." Put away the children, and hide under the floorboards. Image Entertainment has debuted a full trailer for the film Dark Was the Night, a small-town horror thriller about a sheriff who struggles to handle a "new breed of raw terror" found in their woods. Kevin Durand stars along with Lukas Haas and Steve Agee in this very dark, very indie thriller that has an intriguing slow burn werewolf, or monster movie, vibe to it. I'm always glad to see Kevin Durand in more and more challenging roles, especially a lead role, but I'm not sure there is much substance to this one beyond the monsters-within theme. It might be worth a look, give it a shot especially if you like horror.

Here's the first official trailer for Jack Heller's Dark Was the Night, direct from YouTube:

Maiden Woods is a remote and quiet town of decent, hard-working people, but something stirs in the dark woods surrounding this isolated community. After a logging company decimates an area of the forest, a rash of increasingly violent and unexplainable events transpires. Sheriff Paul Shields (Kevin Durand) and his deputy (Lukas Haas) struggle to confront their own personal demons while facing down a new breed of raw terror that is possibly older than humanity itself… And much, much hungrier. Dark Was the Night is directed by producer-turned-filmmaker Jack Heller (of 2011's Enter Nowhere), from a screenplay by Tyler Hisel. This first premiered at the Screamfest Horror Film Festival last year, and will be released by Image Entertainment in the US. Dark Was the Night arrives in select theaters starting on July 24th this summer.

    • Tester
      Same here.. one of my favorite Goa'ulds.. Not so great in The Strain, but not his fault.
  • willymayshayes
    This trailer looks promising.. What wouldn't give for a good wolfman movie. Every one since American Werewolf in London has been terrible, IMO.
    • Mr Chatterbox
      Dog Soldiers brought something new to the genre.
    • Not true. Have you seen Wolfen? Not werewolfs but still pretty tense. Gave me nightmares as a kid. What about the Howling?
  • Great Trailer. Intense.
  • crystaltowers
    If this is a werewolf movie, then yet again I just think "why did they have to choose a monster that's already been done to death?". I wish more filmmakers would attempt creature movies with, not just a new approach, but a whole new creature. Werewolves, vampires, zombies, werewolves, vampires, zombies. All are now ye olde monster concepts that folks found scary a century ago. Need to move on.

      Completely agree, this is why I refuse to watch zombie movies anymore. It is just getting ridiculous. At least GDT has to the courage to attempt to go outside the box with monsters
    • TV_Watcher
      I thought it was a Wendigo, or a variation.
    • Who cares, if its a good movie?
      • crystaltowers
        Would you feel the same way if the monster turned out to be Spongebob Squarepants?
  • Looks watchable.

          • Jon Odishaw

          • ragethorn
            Where you from? Tampa?
          • Jon Odishaw
            No, Calgary.
          • ragethorn
            And you're cheering for Tampa?
          • Jon Odishaw
            No I'm just very racist against the annoying french canadians
          • Jon Odishaw
            The Canadians actually have a team that I like, other than PK Subban.
          • ragethorn
            So am I but those idiots in Quebec have nothing to do with my team. lol
          • Jon Odishaw
            lol fair enough. my bad.
  • shiboleth
    Looks like fun watch ...
    Durand is one of the better character actors out there. I wish he was doing something a little more light hearted, as he is a good comedic actor, but this looks pretty ok.
  • mooreworthy
    He's a BAMF.
  • Liam Knurtsis
    Go Canada! hahaha
