Arrow's Katrina Law headlines this IFC Midnight horror flick descending on theaters, VOD and digital, tossing teens in a decrepit house haunted by sinister spooks bent on malevolent deeds.
Directed by Austin Reading (Death Valley) and also starring Tara Holt, Bryce Johnson, Heather Mazur and Ted Raimi, Darkness Rising has the well-worn indie look and feel of a dozen similar paranormal offerings, but sometimes a little bit of the familiar can be a foundation for greater things.
Here's the official synopsis:
“A house’s horrifying secrets are resurrected in this blood-drenched supernatural nightmare. For years, Madison (Tara Holt) has been tormented by the memories of a traumatic childhood incident: when she was a girl, her mother murdered her younger sister, and nearly killed Madison, too. Joined by her fiancé (Bryce Johnson) and cousin (Katrina Law), the now-adult Madison returns to the home where it happened just before it’s slated to be demolished. Seeking closure, the trio instead finds themselves ensnared by the same evil presence that drove Madison’s mother to unthinkable violence. It soon looks like history may repeat itself…”
Welcome inside this weird domicile where your sanity might be tested by an infestation of spirits, and tell us if this new clip's breathless gasping has you huddling in the bathroom corner.
