Two broken souls. An unholy alliance. Liam Gavin’s unsettling indie horror hit occult horror flick A Dark Song (review) sustains an air of quiet, creeping dread, tensely building towards a confrontation with evils unknown to our earthly bounds.
The debut feature from rising horror auteur Liam Gavin, A Dark Song is available on Blu-ray on DVD September 5th, 2017, from Scream Factory in conjunction with IFC Midnight. The release also includes interviews with director Liam Gavin, actors Steve Oram and Catherine Walker, and director of photography Cathal Watters, deleted scenes, storyboards and the theatrical trailer as bonus features.
“Grieving Sophia (Catherine Walker) despairs over the tragic loss of her murdered son. Desperate to somehow make contact with the boy she has lost, Sophia believes her prayers are answered when she crosses paths with the reclusive Joseph (Steve Oram, Sightseers). An expert in the occult, Joseph reluctantly agrees to aid Sophia through a series of dark and forbidden rituals in order to bring her child back to the world of the living. Pushed to their physical and psychological breaking points, Sophia and Joseph make a disturbing descent into the most depraved corners of black magic.”
