Terror she can’t see plagues the heroine of BLINDSIDED (played by TRUE DETECTIVE’s Bea Santos), coming later this summer. We’ve got the exclusive first look at the trailer and latest poster.

Previously titled DARKER THAN NIGHT, BLINDSIDED will be released to DVD and digital platforms August 13 by Uncork’d Entertainment. Johnny Mitchell directed, and Brandon Tataryn, Brad Wetherly and Mitchell wrote the screenplay; the cast also includes Eric Knudsen, Atticus Mitchell, Melinda Shankar, Paul Popowich and Carlyn Burchell. The synopsis: “Sloan Carter [Santos] is a young girl who has recently been blinded. Her father leaves for the weekend and her two best friends, returning home from university, keep her company. A protégé of her father’s, passing through town, also spends the night. The peaceful weekend is interrupted by a shadowy threat and the safe country getaway turns into a fight for survival.”
