The Darkness Outside
Premiering at the Northeast Film Festival Horror Fest on December 2nd in Teaneck, NJ at 7:30pm.
When 8 year old Briana mysteriously disappears from her room one night, the ensuing search leads her family and others involved down a dark, terrifying road.
This upcoming film stars Shady Dawn Pictures' regular Breanna Engle as Madeline and Jenna Elise as Sarah, the aunt and mother of the missing girl. Newcomer Haley Walter plays Laura Leeds, a troubled young woman who becomes involved after finding evidence of what might've happened to Briana. Rounding out the cast are Macy Rubin as Briana, Briana Aceti as Detective Lynn, Rob Nicholson as Arnold, and Genevieve Perrault as Bailee.
The story is based on numerous true accounts of mysterious vanishings, some featured in David Paulides Missing 411 compilations. It's also a feature-length version of 2016's "The Watchers: The Beginning of Sorrows" which is still available on some VOD platforms.
The film is currently toward the end of post-production, with David J. Ferguson working on the score. Additional music from the short film will be reprised, most of it provided by Matthew Lo'Re.
