Dark Sky Films has unveiled a brand new poster and trailer for the upcoming COMING HOME IN THE DARK, which had its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Make sure you check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
A family’s idyllic outing at an isolated coastline descends into terror when high school teacher Alan ‘Hoaggie’ Hoaganraad, his wife Jill, and stepsons Maika and Jordon unexpectedly come across a pair of murderous drifters – the enigmatic psychopath Mandrake and his hulking man-child accomplice Tubs – who thrust them into a nightmare road trip. At first, the family’s terror seems to be born of a random encounter with two sociopaths, but as the night drags on, Hoaggie and Jill realize that this nightmare was set in motion 20 years earlier; and as they approach their mysterious final destination, Mandrake reveals the horrible secret driving his actions.
COMING HOME IN THE DARK stars Daniel Gillies (“The Vampire Diaries”, “Virgin River”), Erik Thomson (“The Luminaries”, “Packed to the Rafters”), Miriama McDowell (“The Brokenwood Mysteries”, Dean Spanley), and Matthias Luafutu (Ghost in the Shell, “Tatau”).
The film is directed by James Ashcroft, making his directorial feature debut with the film. The screenplay is written by Ashcroft and Eli Kent (Black Sheep, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug).
Dark Sky Films will release COMING HOME IN THE DARK in select theaters and Video On Demand on October 1, 2021.
