Epic Pictures’ Dread line has BLACK SITE, described as “John Carpenter meets H.P. Lovecraft meets THE RAID,” coming April 9; read on to see the latest trailer as well as the poster.

Written and directed by Tom Paton, BLACK SITE stars Sophia Del Pizzo (INTO THE DARK: TREEHOUSE), genre fave Lauren Ashley Carter (DARLING, THE MIND’S EYE), Jessica-Jane Stafford, Angela Dixon, Jake Francis and Samantha Schnitzler. The synopsis: “An elite military unit encounters a supernatural entity, known as The Elder Gods, that forces them into battle against an army from another dimension. They must fight together to defend the Black Site and save the world from ultimate destruction.”

“When I first heard about BLACK SITE, my imagination went wild at the description,” says Dread’s Jonathan Barkan. “Then, after seeing it, I knew that this was a film that would be perfect for horror audiences and DREAD! Tom Paton is an amazing director who has an incredibly bright future ahead of him and it’s a pleasure and an honor to be a part of that.”
