From the Press Release:
Los Angeles, CA– UFOClub Creative has announced the VOD release of Sharad Patel’s Somebody’s Darling. Putting a supernatural twist on the ever-relevant topics of campus safety, rape culture and privilege, Sharad Patel’s directorial feature debut took home the Jury prize for Best Feature at Comicpalooza, Best Horror Feature Film at the Subversive Film Awards and Best International Film at the Feratum Film Festival. Somebody’s Darling will be available on iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play and Vudu starting December 1st.
In the film, a brooding mysterious fraternity president becomes obsessed with a coed despite having it all in his privileged existence. What begins as a hopeful romance twists into obsession, and he risks his social standing in his pursuit of her heart. It seems that a positive change of character might bloom as he drifts away from the misogynistic, hedonist ways of his frat brothers.
But a dark secret seems to cloak it all, and glimpses of truth surface in his surreal visions and dreams. Huge and horrible revelations mark the violent finale of this retro-styled, psychological, horror drama touching upon current issues of date rape culture, southern history, and privilege.
Somebody’s Darling arrives on iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play and Vudu on December 1, 2017.
