Last week we showed you the trailer and a clip for the upcoming horror thriller from Wolf Creek director Greg McLean; The Darkness. To continue along the media train and excitement growth for the project, we have a special treat for you. From Blumhouse Tilt comes the brand new poster which holds the same eeriness as the trailer itself. Check it our right below.
The Darkness tells the following story:
From the director of the cult classic, Wolf Creek Greg McLean, comes the supernatural thriller The Darkness, opening nationwide May 13th, 2016. As a family returns home from vacation at the Grand Canyon, they innocently bring home a supernatural force that preys off their own fears and vulnerabilities, threatening to destroy them from within, while consuming their lives with terrifying consequences.
The film stars Kevin Bacon, Radha Mitchell, David Mazouz, Lucy Fry, Matt Walsh, and Jennifer Morrison. Director Greg McLean also wrote the film with Shayne Armstrong and S.P. Krause. Produced by the kind folks at Blumhouse, Jason Blum, Bianca Martino, and Matt Kaplan the film will be released by BH Tilt in coordination with High Top Releasing
The trailer is creepy enough to hold our attention and as huge fans of Wolf Creek over here at We Are Indie Horror we cannot be more excited for this film. Although the film is in wide release and holding a mainstream presence we have to look back at the indie sensation of Greg McLean and his cult aussie thriller Wolf Creek
2005 saw the release of the incredibly violent character piece centering around a killer in the outback. The film was met with praise from horror fans. The pacing was slow and methodical with a pay off that is well worth the wait. Wolf Creek had a Sundance premiere and grew legs from there to make itself around the world. Being made for roughly around $1 million, the film took in well over that and continued to bring in money past it’s home video release. Greg McLean continued to make scary films and now has been brought on to create The Darkness. If he brings half of the style and pacing he has had in his previous work, we are in for a treat.
