Dark Nature Incites Riotous Violence in Peaceful Glasgow

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
Dark Nature was shot in the rolling foothills of Scotland and the film is a hilarious turn on the routine slasher film. Cat and mouse chases abound, yet Dark Nature is more than blood and guts. A review from the Scottish Daily states that the screenplay is excellent and sure to develop a "cult following" (Daily). The film also quirts "rivers of raspberry sauce [blood]" and two early reviews appear satisfied with Marc De Launay's independent venture. The film also has comedic elements, with a family looking for a relaxing time only to find knife wounds and maniacs on the loose (Daily). The film has made its way to North American markets quickly and Dark Nature will be available in multiple formats April 27th.

The synopsis/pitch for the feature here:

"Dark Nature's story revolves around a family holiday gone wrong, as a mother and daughter's trip to an isolated community turns into a nightmare. An eco-thriller, Dark Nature's plotting took inspiration from the zeitgeist of 1970's productions like Deliverance, Long Weekend and Island of the Damned" (Dark Nature).

Release Date: April 27th (DVD and Blu-Ray).

Director: Marc De Launay.

Writer: Eddie Harrison.

Cast: Niall Greig Fulton, Imogen Toner, and James Bryce.
