'THE DARK' SEES THE LIGHT
Empty House Film is currently in the post-production stages of a short horror film called 'The Dark' that was shot in Southern Maine in August.
Recent good news was the addition of Emmy Nominated Editor Peter Gvozdas, who will be editing the project. A 'First Look at the Dark', a video teaser, is now available on the films website: www.emptyhousefilm.com.
The film stars New England stage actress Molly W.B. Roberts as Sarah, a woman who is traveling with her friend David (Jake Beal) through the backwoods. The couple has fun until they discover the secrets of an abandoned, backwoods town, and the wrath of a deranged family.
'I'm really blown away by the performances, as well as how wonderful some of the images are. This was a dream project for me.'-Davis said. Davis called the film his homage to the films of the 1970's. Films such as 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,' 'Last House on the Left,' and 'Straw Dogs' were among the director's favorites from that era.
Empty House Film is currently trying to raise funding to make 'The Dark' into a full-length feature film. 'The story would change a little, we don't want to make the same film twice.' Davis said. 'Every member of the cast and crew is behind us, which is really nice, there was a lot of sacrifice on 'The Dark', which was amazing to see.'-Davis said.
