The Dark and the Wicked
A secluded home, a looming menace, a family struggling to stay united. If you think you’ve seen this one before, rising talent Bryan Bertino (The Strangers) wrenches a whole new level of terror from this harrowing fable for our grief-stricken times. When adult siblings Louise and Michael return to the farm where they grew up to say goodbye to their dying father and comfort their distressed mother, they soon find themselves overwhelmed by waking nightmares and an unstoppable evil that threatens to consume them all. Suffused with dread and disturbing turns for the worse, The Dark and the Wicked taps into deep anxieties about our responsibilities to our loved ones—while also taking us on a spine-chilling trip.
“Writer-director Bryan Bertino’s slender script translates into a low-humming, allusvie narrative (punctuated with occasional gore) of tingling terror” –Variety
