Dark Sky Premieres Trailer for DARLIN'
The feral child genre is an odd one. It’s fairly well known, even seeing some play in recent times because of Mama, but it’s definitely a subgenre of horror that isn’t as mined as others. Well luckily for us Dark Sky Films is putting out Pollyanna McIntosh’s Darlin’.
McIntosh is well known for acting, starring in the hit show The Walking Dead as well as parts in genre films Tales of Halloween and Let Us Prey and even starring in The Woman. With Darlin’, we have her feature film debut as a director and it looks like McIntosh is poised to make her mark. We’re incredibly excited to see more female directors putting their chips in and can’t wait to catch the new movie when it hits theaters and VOD on July 12th of this year. Find the synopsis and trailer below!
Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin' (Lauryn Canny) is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop (Bryan Batt, AMC's Mad Men) and his obedient nuns where she is to be tamed into a "good girl." However, Darlin' holds a secret darker than the "sins" she is threatened with, and she is not traveling alone. The Woman (Pollyanna McIntosh, The Walking Dead), equally fierce and feral, who raised her is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.
DARLIN' sees standout star Pollyanna McIntosh both in front of and behind the camera, expertly commanding an all-consuming feast for the senses and sensibility in equal measure.
