Called a “nihilistic morality thriller” by Meagan Navarro out of the Sundance Film Festival World Premiere, Coming Home in the Dark is now making its way home ahead of Halloween.
Dark Sky will bring the film to select theaters and VOD on October 1.
In Coming Home in the Dark…
“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.”
Daniel Gillies, Erik Thomson, Miriama McDowell, Matthias Luafutu, Billy Paratene, Frankie Paratene, and Bailey Cowan star in a film directed and co-written by James Ashcroft.
Eli Kent wrote the script with Ashcroft.
