Darclight Films has secured a U.S. distribution deal for Entity with Brainstorm Media and Fangoria.
The film stars Charlotte Riley, Dervia Kirwan and Branko Tomovic.
The horror thriller (trailer after the jump) slides back and forth through time in order to connect the dots to a terrifying mystery. The story begins in a remote forest where 34 unidentified bodies were found in shallow graves and despite subsequent police investigations, no official explanation for their deaths was ever offered. The case was consequently closed.
A decade later, the crew of Darkest Secrets, a reality TV show dedicated to uncovering the truth behind unsolved crimes, embarks upon a location shoot in the same remote forest. Assisting with the expedition is Ruth Peacock (Dervla Kirwan) a psychic whom the crew hope can shed some light on the mystery, but when the group stumbles across a derelict industrial site, they begin to discover the reality behind the mystery and its terrifying aftermath.
“This is not a found-footage film. This is something else,” said director Steve Stone. “We are indeed proud that we have been able to deliver a film that looks and sounds as good as ENTITY does. We are also very proud of the fact that ENTITY was able to attract such a fantastic cast. But, above all things the single element of a great story was given the highest priority by all on this film – a story that will engage, chill and surprise an audience throughout its entire length. The film now has signed UK and International deals and we look forward to sharing those distribution plans as they evolve.”
Stay tuned for a release date.
