To win tickets to the DreadVision screening of Darkness Rising, send an email to [email protected].  Please list “Darkness Rising” in your subject line, and provide your full name. Offer is good for you and a guest. We will confirm your RSVP, but seating is not guaranteed, so arrive early. Dread’s Tony Timpone will be hosting the fearful fun.

The storyline: A house’s horrifying secrets are resurrected in this blood-drenched supernatural nightmare. For years, Madison (Holt) has been tormented by the memories of a traumatic childhood incident: When she was a girl, her mother murdered her younger sister and nearly killed Madison, too. Joined by her fiancé (Johnson) and cousin (Law), the now-adult Madison returns to the home where it happened just before it’s slated to be demolished. Seeking closure, the trio instead find themselves ensnared by the same evil presence that drove Madison’s mother to unthinkable violence. It soon looks like history may repeat itself…

This exclusive event is presented by our pals at IFC Midnight, who open Darkness Rising at the IFC this Friday for a week-long run. You can purchase tickets for the Dread-hosted Friday screening (and other showtimes, too) by clicking here.
