Catherine Walker’s understandably unable to overcome her heartache and despair of losing her young son in her upcoming horror film, ‘A Dark Song.’ But her grief has stunningly turned from relatable to terrifying and inescapable as a sinister plan unfolds throughout the movie. American audiences can now commiserate with her character’s increasingly frightening, and seemingly irreversible, mourning, as the official U.S. trailer and poster for the drama have been released by its distributor, IFC Midnight.
The American film production and distribution company will unveil ‘A Dark Song’ in select theaters, as well as on VOD and digital platforms, nationwide on April 28. The horror movie was written and directed by first-time feature filmmaker, Liam Gavin. In addition to Walker, the drama also stars Steve Oram.
IFC Midnight has released the official synopsis for ‘A Dark Song’:
An unholy alliance between two damaged souls leads them on a disturbing descent into the depraved realms of black magic. Sophia (Catherine Walker) is a grieving and desperate woman with a secret. Joseph (Steve Oram) is an anti-social, alcoholic expert in the occult who reluctantly agrees to help her. Holed up in a remote cabin amidst the desolate wilds of Northern Wales, the two embark on a grueling six-month series of dark rituals that will push them both to the physical and psychological breaking point. The debut feature from rising horror auteur Liam Gavin sustains an air of quietly creeping dread as it builds towards one hell of a payoff.
