A skeptical grad student, Veronica Carpenter (Lynn Justinger), interviews a renowned paranormal specialist, Dr. Lois Kearne (Fiona Horrigan), for her thesis on the benefits of supernatural research in regards to modern psychology. She joins Dr. Lois on a field study trip to a Brooklyn family home that is supposedly “besieged by evil spirits.” Once at the residence, the investigators are immediately confronted with dangerous secrets, dark energies and a young girl whose inexplicable affliction tests the boundaries of all their collective research. Everyone is forced to confront their own haunted pasts and demons, unaware of what exactly is lying hungrily in wait… in the dark.

Lights out.
Lights out.

In the Dark is a shot of energy and a breath of fresh air in a popular yet overcrowded genre marketplace. Combining the thrills and chills that are a staple of the horror genre, as well as a strong original story, headed by a female cast of some of NYC’s most talented actresses. The film’s haunting images from cinematographer Gus Sacks are complemented by over 50 minutes of original music by award winning composer Fritz Myers of Platitude Music ( IFC's White Reindeer, Sushi Girl, Best Soundtrack at 2012’s Toronto After Dark).
