Are you afraid of the dark? If you are, you aren't alone, and you should probably avoid the relevantly named psychological thriller, Dark.

The movie centers around the Northeast blackout of 2003, where a widespread power outage effected 45 million people in the USA. Some residents were without power for two days.

Set in New York, our protagonist, Kate (Whitney Able), is forced to face her fears when she is left in metaphorical and literal darkness after becoming trapped, alone, in her apartment. Check out the trailer below:

A Fight For Survival

The film, which was released last year, was Executively Produced by Joe Dante, who directed the iconic horror Gremlins (1984) and Small Soldiers (1998) amongst others.

Screen Media has acquired rights to the movie, which was made on a budget of around $400,000.

The movie is directed by Nick Basile, and stars Alexandra Breckenridge, Michael Eklund and Brendan Sexton.

A delightful nugget of the official synopsis is below:

"As darkness falls over the city, Kate’s paranoia grows and she begins to believe someone in the building is stalking her. With no one to help her and escape out of reach, Kate is forced to confront her deepest fears as she fights to survive through the night."
