Said it before and I’ll say it again – IFC Midnight has been knocking it out of the park of late and it looks like they may have once again picked themselves a winner. Titled Darkness Rising – this one goes like this:
“A house’s horrifying secrets are resurrected in this blood-drenched supernatural nightmare. For years, Madison (Tara 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 (Bryce Johnson) and cousin (Katrina 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… Cult horror icon Ted Raimi costars.”
Ok- kind of reads like your run of the mill haunted house joint – right? OK, so check out the trailer and I think you’ll see what I’m seeing.
Don’t have to wait long for this one at all – it hits VOD and digital platforms on June 30th. It also has a limited theatrical run so if you’re in an area that gets such things – keep an eye out for it.
