In The Dark Anthology Series Adds New Segment To Be Loved to the Fold



Post Thumb:


In The Dark Anthology Series Adds New Segment To Be Loved to the FoldFans that remember the In The Dark anthology shorts “The Keeper” and “Dummy” will be happy to know that even though the group has been quiet for a while, they’ve just arisen with a trailer for their new segment, “To Be Loved.”

Honestly, that Charlie McCarthy ventriloquist mask these guys chose to use in “Dummy” still freaks us out so we’re very excited to see just what they have in store. We’ll have more on “To Be Loved” as it becomes available.

For now check out the trailer below, and be sure to visit the official In the Dark website and ‘like’ In the Dark on Facebook.

From the Press Release
While the first two episodes featured an axe-wielding ventriloquist dummy and a supernatural demon from hell, that was just for starters. This time things get really twisted and played for comedy. “To Be Loved” is a dark comedy with a horror twist written and directed by Chris St.Croix. It’s the latest episode from the successful horror anthology series In the Dark created by St.Croix and writer/director David Buchert.

“To Be Loved” is a stylized tale of a lonely guy who is promised true love but finds that it comes at a bloody price. It stars newcomer Justin Hand and Shellie White, who starred in the critically acclaimed Make Out With Violence. Describing the film, St.Croix says, “It’s completely different from my last episode, ‘The Keeper,’ and I call it a twisted romance for a reason. It gets pretty dark, but I also wanted it to be fun. If you can imagine what it might be like if David Cronenberg made a Warner Brothers cartoon, that’ll give you an idea of what you’re in for.”

While the trailer is designed to leave you wanting more and not giving everything away, it does give us a quick glimpse at a very unusual, non-human character in the film. “I don’t want to say too much, but I really wanted to do something that hadn’t been seen before and also do the effects practically,” St. Croix said. “With the help of the amazing Paul Fly, who created all the mechanical characters in the film, I think we’ve managed to do something that really hasn’t been seen before or at least not in the way we’ve done it. There are a couple firsts in this episode, and I’m really proud of that.”

As with the last two episodes, “To Be Loved” will make the festival rounds in 2014 before being combined with the others and an upcoming episode directed by Buchert into a four-part anthology feature in the tradition of Cat’s Eye and Creepshow. “We set out to create a series like the ones we grew up loving like Tales from the Crypt. Over a million people have seen the episodes in the last year, and the response has been incredible, especially in a climate where it’s hard to get anyone to watch something for longer than three minutes. We think fans of the first two will enjoy this episode as well. And the more people that share the trailer, tweet it, review it, and spread the word, the more likely that we can continue to make more.”

Synapse’s Suspiria 4K Restoration Gets a Release Date



Earlier this year, we wrote about Synapse Films’ Suspiria 4K restoration and how it was available for pre-order. The weird catch was that there was no release date confirmed and that pre-orders would go out sometime in December 2017. Today that changes as we can confirm that the 3-disc special edition Blu-ray collection will come out December 19th, just in time for Christmas but a little late for Hanukkah. Any chance we can have one extra night this year?

Restored over three years, Synapse has been working tirelessly to create the ultimate version of Dario Argento’s 1977 classic supernatural horror film, which has since gone on to become one of the most recognized and lauded titles in the genre. This cut has been overseen and approved by Luciano Tovoli, the Director of Photography on the film.

Pre-orders are still available via Synapse Films’ website.
