Writer-director Nicole Groton‘s female-driven horror thriller Darkness in Tenement 45 about a biological threat that causes people to seek isolation, a topic very poignant these days, is set to arrive this November.


The award-winning film is set in the 1950s centers on “Joanna (Nicole Tompkins) who has been living with her overbearing Aunt Martha, in a low-income NYC tenement building ever since a violent outburst left her fighting a force that she can only describe as the “darkness.” Little did she know that weeks after moving in, a biological threat from the Soviet Union would leave the building boarded up and the tenants locked inside. With food dwindling and Martha’s controversial role as leader expanding, Joanna rallies the children in an attempt to save the building. Tensions come to a violent head when Martha delves into Joanna’s past and Joanna struggles to keep the darkness from overtaking her entirely.”


Nicole Tompkins, David Labiosa, Melissa Macedo, Casey Kramer, Keyon Bowman, and Anthony Marciona star in Darkness in Tenement 45 which had an unstoppable festival run in which it took home multiple awards including Best Feature (Big Apple Film Festival).
