Victor Salva Opens His Dark House Next Month
Formerly titled Haunted, Victor Salva's Dark House is set to open up its creaky doors in less than a month, and a very familiar face will be found on the other side. Step inside for full details!
From the Press Release
The horror-suspense feature Dark House, starring the iconic Tobin Bell (Saw), begins its day-and-date roll-out in March.
On March 11 Cinedigm launches the film in North America across cable, VOD, Blu-ray Disc, and DVD. Paladin will release the movie in New York and Los Angeles on March 14 with additional markets to follow.
Dark House, which follows the terrifying road trip of a young man in search of his dark past, is the freshman effort of LA-based Charles Agron Productions. The company, which expects to announce an international distribution deal in coming days, is also in early stages of pre-production on a second horror title, Monday at 11:01 AM.
Dark House is directed by Victor Salva, a genre favorite whose two Jeepers Creepers films broke box office records and are seminal in the horror canon. Salva co-wrote the script with producer Charles Agron, based on a story by Agron.
Headlining the cast is Tobin Bell. His portrayal of Jigsaw in the Saw franchise was called “brilliant and formidable” by the BBC and made him one of “the most acclaimed names in the world of horror” according to Bloody Disgusting. Up-and-coming young actor Luke Kleintank (“Pretty Little Liars,” 1000 to 1) stars along with Alex McKenna (“Crossing Jordan”, “Dallas”), Zack Ward (Postal), and multiple award-winner Lesley-Anne Down (“Upstairs/Downstairs”).
Says Charles Agron, President of Charles Agron Productions, “It is so gratifying to see this film--which I first sat down to write four years ago--wind up with an iconic director and star, an ensemble of very exciting young actors, and a pair of distributors with deep experience in horror to bring Dark House to audiences.” In addition to producing the film and co-writing with Salva, Agron plays a lead role.
Dark House is a thrilling and horrifying road trip, full of twists and brutal surprises--a suspenseful thriller about a young man and a chilling old house that has survived decades, awaiting the return of its prodigal son… a house that can escalate Nick’s gift to see death before it happens but holds within its walls the origins of a dark family legacy so horrible it may have already reached out to Nick’s unborn child.
When Nick Di Santo learns that his father is not only alive but can possibly reveal the origin of his son's dark gift, he sets out on a trip that takes him to an abandoned mansion he thought only existed in his childhood imagination.
