Movies In Focus called Bryan Bertino’s The Dark And The Wicked ‘a well crafted and intelligent horror film..a strong and powerful slice of genre cinema which gets deep under the skin. It’s one of the best horror films of the year’. Read the full review here
Starring Marin Ireland, Michael Abbott Jr, Julie Oliver-Touchstone and Xander Berkeley, the horror film will now arrive on Blu-ray, DVD and digital on 5 July 2021. The disc releases feature a Fantasia Fest Q&A with stars Marin Ireland and Michael Abbott Jr.
If you’re a fan of the horror genre, then I highly recommend that you get a copy of The Dark and The Wicked when it hits shelves.
On a secluded farm, a man is bedridden and fighting through his final breaths while his wife (Julie Oliver-Touchstone, Preacher) slowly succumbs to overwhelming grief. Siblings Louise (Marin Ireland, Hell or High Water) and Michael (Michael Abbott Jr., The Death of Dick Long) return home to help, but it doesn’t take long for them to see that something’s wrong with mom—something more than her heavy sorrow. Gradually, they begin to suffer a darkness similar to their mother’s, marked by waking nightmares and a growing sense that an evil entity is taking over their family.
