No relation to the Tooth Fairy fright film from 2003, DARKNESS FALLS is a serial-killer thriller from a producer with a number of independent horror favorites on his résumé that’s coming next month.
Vertical Entertainment will release DARKNESS FALLS (previously titled ANDERSON FALLS) June 12 on VOD and digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Apple TV, Google Play, FandangoNow and others. Directed by Julien Seri and written and produced by Giles Daoust (STARRY EYES, THE RANGER), it stars Shawn Ashmore (THE FOLLOWING, FROZEN), Gary Cole, genre veteran Lin Shaye, Richard Harmon, Daniella Alonso, Sonya Walger and Vahina Giocante. The synopsis: “After his wife’s suicide, Detective Jeff Anderson [Ashmore] becomes convinced that she has in fact been murdered. Obsessed with his investigation, Anderson finds out that his wife was the victim of a team of father-and-son serial killers. He’ll have to break all the rules to stop them from killing other women.”
