First things first: I’m back with a new look that I hope everyone likes and with a new feature that I hope to present to you every Friday night. It’s called Friday Night at the Trailer Park and it is exactly what it says it is; every Friday I will feature a trailer for your enjoyment, amusement, shock and/or awe. It could be a trailer for an upcoming horror movie or for a previously released fright flick. Who knows what you will see here?

I’m going to start with a trailer for a film entitled Dark Was the Night (aka The Trees). It stars Kevin Durand, Lukas Hass, Heath Freeman, Sabina Gadecki, and Nick Damici.

SynopsisMaiden Woods is a remote and quiet town of decent, hard-working people, but something stirs in the dark woods surrounding this isolated community. After a logging company decimates an area of the forest, a rash of increasingly violent and unexplainable events transpires. Sheriff Paul Shields (Kevin Durand) and his deputy (Lukas Haas) struggle to confront their own personal demons while facing down a new breed of raw terror that is possibly older than humanity itself… And much, much hungrier.

Dark Was the Night is directed by Jack Heller and written by Tyler Hisel. According to Wikipedia, that mightiest of know-it-alls, Hisel’s script was included in the 2009 Hollywood Blacklist (an annual list of the top 100 screenplays. The movie is based (loosely) on the real-life events that unfolded in Topsham, England in 1855, known as The Devil’s Footprints. The small town woke to find freshly fallen snow and biped hoof prints tracing the landscape. Dark Was the Night is said to tell the story of a present-day community’s reaction to a similar event.

Dark Was the Night was first released on October 16, 2014 at the Screamfest Horror Film Festival and is expected to be released to theaters on July 24th, 2015.

  1. Love the new look of the blog. Its cleaner with less stuff bunched up around the current post. Its easier on the eyes and easier to read. And second, the trailer for Dark was the Night looks like this will be an awesome film to see. definitely put it on my list!

    • Thank you! I’m glad you like it and I’m glad you like the trailer. I know not every trailer I present will be pleasing but I’m glad this first one did the trick.

    • I have it in my sights also, man. This whole Friday Night at the Trailer Park is going to be random as can be with whatever catches my eye. Thanks for the compliment and the comments and especially for the re-blog.

  2. I like the new look. I thought it was LV-426 but now I realize it’s the subway, yet considering the set for “Aliens” how much of a difference does that make?
