Watch: Kevin Durand in Horror Thriller '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.
