Following its festival tour earlier this year, writer/director Justin P. Lange’s superior fright film THE DARK is now set for wider release. Read on for the details, trailer and poster.

Dark Sky Films releases THE DARK in select theaters and on VOD October 26. The movie, which we rave about here, stars Nadia Alexander, Toby Nichols and Karl Markovics. The synopsis: “On the outskirts of a small town lies Devil’s Den, a mysterious tract of woods where many have entered but no one has ever left. The local rumor is that the spirit of a young girl who was horrifically murdered there haunts and hunts in this dense forest, brutally slaying anyone who dares to step into her terrain. When a man with a dark past crosses her path, a series of events are set in motion that may lead to a peculiar kind of redemption for two tragically tortured souls.”
