November Belongs To “The Dark And The Wicked”

Monday, September 28, 2020 | News

This November, RLJE films and Bryan Bertino (The Strangers, The Monster, Mockingbird) bring you a new nightmare that Rue Morgue calls one of 2020’s most frightening films.

On a secluded farm, a man is slowly dying. Bedridden and fighting through his final breaths, his wife is slowly succumbing to overwhelming grief. To help their mother and say goodbye to their father, siblings Louise (Marin Ireland) and Michael (Michael Abbott Jr.) return to their family farm. It doesn’t take long for them to see that something’s wrong with mom, though—something more than her heavy sorrow. Gradually, as their own grief mounts, Louise and Michael begin suffering from a darkness similar to their mother’s, marked by waking nightmares and a growing sense that something evil is taking over their family.

Written and directed by Bertino, THE DARK AND THE WICKED stars Marin Ireland (The Umbrella Academy, Hell or High Water), Michael Abbott Jr. (Loving, Mud) and Xander Berkeley (The Walking Dead).
