Image Entertainment, an RLJ brand, has acquired Dark Was the Night, which stars Kevin Durand, Lukas Hass, Heath Freeman, Sabina Gadecki and Nick Damici.
Directed by Jack Heller from a script by Tyler Hisel, “A long slumbering evil is awoken in the trees, outside the remote town of Maiden Woods. Isolated and threatened it sets its sites on the townspeople, as Sheriff Paul Shields (Kevin Durand) attempts to overcome the demons of his past, so that he may protect those that he loves.”
It will get a limited theatrical run this year.
Dark Was the Night premiered at the Screamfest horror film festival this past October.
