The other day we reported that Toronto-based genre specialist, Raven Banner, has boarded Austin Reading’s genre bending horror sci-fi, Darkness Rising, for International sales and will introduce the film at this week’s European Film Market in Berlin.
Haunted by a mysterious past, the lone survivor of a family massacre revisits her childhood home on the eve of its destruction, awakening the otherworldly evil that resides there.
We have exclusive art from the EFM that is a collage of a family massacre.
The film stars Katrina Law (“Arrow,” “Spartacus”), Bryce Johnson (Willow Creek, “Pretty Little Liars”), Tara Holt (“Californication,” “Ballers”) and featuring horror legend Ted Raimi (Evil Dead, “Xena,” “Ash vs Evil Dead”).
The film was produced by Storyboard Entertainment’s Jason Potash and Paul Finkel and Compass Entertainment’s Marcus Dean Fuller and Julie S. Fuller. Ruth Du and Harris Kauffman co-producing, with the screenplay by Vikram Weet.
The deal was negotiated by Preferred Content on behalf of the producers and Raven Banner’s Michael Paszt and James Fler.
