More wicked indie tales are on the way in the latest fear fest, Darkest Night, and we have all the details and the first stills for you! Dig it!
From the Press Release
Gothic Productions International, a Philippine company funded by U.S. independent resources, has finished shooting its latest production, a horror film titled Darkest Night, in Luzon. The film has almost all Filipino actors as well as American DJ Perry of The 8th Plague, Wicked Spring, and many other popular U.S. horror films. The film also sports Malaysian talent to round out its international cast and crew.
At best, most “original” U.S. horror films are remakes of Asian films that somehow lose their magic in translation, according to Perry.
Darkest Night unfolds in a “found video and documentary” style. Its story plops American Perry right in the middle to allow Western audiences to experience a “holiday” trip away from home. Eastern audiences will identify with the many vivid Asian characters as well as the local and family setting. Perry’s character in the film, Ken Tyler, is introduced to the traditional Filipino parents of his Filipino fiancée, Susan Reyes, played by Anne Gauthier, during a Christmas Day family reunion. What follows is a dark, horrific trip not to be missed as demonic forces come into play.
The film is now in post-production and will have a November or December 2011 premiere. This opening is expected to be followed up by theatrical play in the Philippines and then across eastern Asia. Talks are currently under way with distributors in the U.S. for the rights.
Darkest Night combines Western demons with Eastern spiritual traditions to come up with an original recipe for suspense and terror.
