Out of the Dark in Cinemas February 27th 2015

Last month JoBlo brought us the effectively creepy international trailer for Lluís Quílez’s supernatural thriller OUT OF THE DARK, which stars Julia Stiles, Scott Speedman, and Stephen Rea, and today we have word on when you finally expect to check it out in theaters as well as a look at the film’s poster.

Sarah Harriman’s (Stiles) family has relocated from London to a small town in Colombia to take over her father’s business. Moving into a beautiful old home and having her father nearby, their new life in Santa Clara seems like a promising place to raise their young daughter Hannah. But Sarah and her husband, Paul (Speedman), soon learn of an ancient legend that haunts the town and has created a culture where ghosts have become the answer to anything that goes wrong.

As they settle into their new surroundings Hannah begins to act strangely, wandering off into the jungle as if following something, and suddenly falls ill. When Sarah and Paul begin to see disfigured ghost-like creatures around the house Hannah disappears, sending them on a frantic search to find her. As they delve deeper into the town’s superstitions they discover a shocking secret about their family and must uncover the truth in order to save their daughter.

OUT OF THE DARK arrives in theaters February 27 from Vertical Entertanment. Vertical’s Rich Goldberg says that “Out of the Dark is much more than it seems on the surface. We think it will surprise genre fans with its ability to reach beyond just the scares and great storytelling and have a thought-provoking motif that will stay with them well after they see it.” Sounds good to me! In the meantime check out the new poster, here.

New Promos for Pheonix

The creative team is now set for the off-Broadway production of Scott Organ’s Phoenix, starring the previously announced Julia Stiles and James Wirt.

The production, helmed by Jennifer DeLia, will feature set design by Caite Hevner Kemp, costumes by Amit Gajwani, lighting design by Oona Curley, sound design by Janie Bullard and scenic art by Burton Machen.

When Bruce (Wirt) and Sue (Stiles) meet four weeks after an uncharacteristic one-night-stand, Sue has this to say to him: one, I had a great time with you that night and two, let’s never see each other again. Thus begins a 4,000 mile journey well beyond the confines of their carefully structured worlds. Bruce is fueled by an overwhelming but undefined compulsion to join her in Phoenix. Sue is reluctantly charmed by his persistence, but steadfast in her resolve to keep him at bay.

Phoenix will play a limited engagement through August 23. Opening night for the one-act dark romantic comedy is set for August 7.
