The Children director joins the horror thriller
Arriving with a script from E.L. Katz and Tim Day, Dark Corners is based on on an idea by Producers Peter Block and Andy Gould. The official description is as follows:
Dark Corners revolves around Jess, a beautiful blind college girl who is tormented by a methodic killer who knows her well, and therefore knows what terrifies her. He is motivated by sadistic revenge, but she turns her apparent weakness into a strength and fights back.
“This is a cat-n-mouse thriller in the spirit of ‘Wait Until Darkâ€™ and â€˜Panic Roomâ€™,” says Block, “that gives you someone to root for, someone to fear and something going bump in the night.â€
â€œDark Corners will be Hitchcock re-imagined for a modern audience who love to be scared in the dark,â€ adds Shankland. â€œIâ€™ve always loved films where characters have very limited choices and tools to solve problems and survive, and then mining suspense from these claustrophobic situations.â€
