Coming Home in the Dark left viewers at Sundance on the edge of their seats. Now, it’s gearing up to open in theaters and land on VOD this October. Ahead of its release, we’ve got the new trailer for this dark, brutal, horror thriller.
In Coming Home in the Dark, directed by James Ashcroft, “A family’s idyllic outing at an isolated coastline descends into terror when high school teacher Alan ‘Hoaggie’ Hoaganraad, his wife Jill, and stepsons Maika and Jordon unexpectedly come across a pair of murderous drifters – the enigmatic psychopath Mandrake and his hulking man-child accomplice Tubs – who thrust them into a nightmare road trip. At first, the family’s terror seems to be born of a random encounter with two sociopaths, but as the night drags on, Hoaggie and Jill realize that this nightmare was set in motion 20 years earlier; and as they approach their mysterious final destination, Mandrake reveals the horrible secret driving his actions.
Daniel Gillies of “The Originals” stars alongside, Erik Thomson, Miriama McDowell, and Matthias Luafutu, the New Zealand film was penned by Ashcroft and Eli Kent.
