HELP THE NEW JOE DANTE PRODUCED THRILLER ‘DARK’ BECOME A REALITY VIA KICKSTARTER

DARK BANNER 1

On August 14th, 2003, New York City went… DARK

Produced by legendary horror director/producer Joe Dante and written by GUT writer/director Elias, DARK (currently raising funds on the crowdsourcing site Kickstarter) is a new feature thriller directed by Nick Basile, who has produced and directed a series of independent films including Festival Award winners Slasher FlickBeyond Dreams and The Man Who Knew Belle Starr. Basile most recently directed the feature documentary American Carny: True Tales from the Circus Sideshow (in wide release throughout the US and Canada) which the Film Institute of Lincoln Center named among its prestigious Top 10 Documentaries of the Year.

“I’ve always been attracted to projects by young filmmakers who are trying to do something within their means,” says Dante, “DARK has been conceived in this manner and has the opportunity to be a very suspenseful and commercial picture.”

SYNOPSIS:

Set in NYC during the blackout of 2003, Kate, a struggling 30-something model with a troubled past, has just moved into her girlfriend Leah’s Brooklyn loft but already doubts about their relationship have begun to loom. When Leah leaves for the weekend, Kate unexpectedly finds herself alone in the apartment in the midst of the worst blackout in North American history. As darkness falls over the city, Kate’s paranoia grows and she begins to believe someone in the building is stalking her. With no one to help her and escape out of reach, Kate is forced to confront her deepest fears as she fights to survive through the night.

From the DARK KICKSTARTER PAGE:

A story with a raw, gritty, neo-realistic feel that evolves into a suspenseful nightmare, DARK thematically is about isolation and plays on the fear of entrapment. In the tradition of moody and methodical thrillers that explore character psychosis such as Polanski’s Repulsion or more recently Black Swan and Martha Marcy May Marlene, DARK is a journey into the depths of one’s own mortal fears, weaknesses and the desperate struggle for sanity in a world engulfed in shadow.

Attached to play Kate, our lead and heroine, is the extraordinarily talented and stunning actress Whitney Able. Star of the critically acclaimed film Monsters and soon to be seen in A Walk Among the Tombstones with Liam Neeson and All the Boys Love Mandy Lane along with Amber Heard.

Co-starring as Kate’s photographer girlfriend Leah, we have attached Alexandra Breckenridge who has ignited the screen on shows like American Horror Story and True Blood.
