Horror anthologies are at an all time high. Down in the beautiful city of Nashville one such anthology is on the way. IN THE DARK is a sinister anthology from Chris St. Croix and David Buchert and it will be heading to VOD next week. Gravitas Ventures is delivering the film October 6th and is a myriad of tales surrounding two female bandits who come across a bunch of tapes. On these tapes are a selection of stories that involve all types of chaos and bloody gore. Look for it next week and a review from us in the near future.
Gravitas Ventures has acquired worldwide digital distribution rights to the Nashville, TN indie horror anthology IN THE DARK. The film will be released on all digital, cable and VOD platforms on October 6, 2015 with a special iTunes pre-order starting September 15th, 2015. “IN THE DARK is an immensely entertaining horror film”, said Gravitas Ventures’ Michael Lange. “We couldn’t be more excited to be working with Nashville filmmakers Chris St. Croix and David Buchert to help bring IN THE DARK to over 100 million homes this Halloween season.”
IN THE DARK tells the tale of two female assassins hiding out in a rundown motel who discover a bag of unmarked videotapes. With each tape they play, they are drawn deeper into a twisted world where anything can happen. From a gang of murderers who must fight to survive against a giant sin-slaying creature from hell to an axe wielding maniac playing a deadly game of cat and mouse with a family in an abandoned mental hospital; and finally, a lonely man promised true love by a supernatural matchmaker who finds his desire comes at a bloody price. Written and directed by Chris St. Croix and David Buchert and with its genre bending combination of action, horror and dark comedy, IN THE DARK is sure to deliver a slice of gory fun to audiences everywhere. The film was shot and completed entirely in Nashville Tennessee and stars a large ensemble cast including Katie Groshong (Jug Face), Shellie White (Make-out With Violence) and William Harrison (Lawless) and features Special Creature Effects by Rick Prince of Syfy Channel’s Face Off series.
Bucking the recent trend of found footage-style anthologies, IN THE DARK is a return to the cinematic look and feel of classic films by John Carpenter, David Cronenberg and Brian DePalma. Nashville filmmakers Chris St.Croix and David Buchert have teamed up to create what Ain’t It Cool News calls “One hell of an anthology”. “We set out to make a film that looked and felt like the horror movies we grew up watching” says Buchert. “So even though we didn’t have any money to work with, we knew we still wanted our film to look like a million bucks.” St.Croix adds, “Audiences today have so much to choose from that we knew we had to bring something special to the table. We can’t wait for everyone to finally be able to check it out.”
