In the Dark Half

SYNOPSIS

The dark half of the year approaches, bad things are happening to Marie. It might be her fault or it might be related to the strange forces that seem to emanate from the ancient hill overlooking the estate where she lives.

One night, while babysitting, a terrible accident occurs. Now she is sure something very nasty is out to get her and soon nowhere will be safe.

Starring Tony Curran, Lyndsey Marshal and Jessica Barden, the film marks the fiction debut of Al Siddons, who’s previous feature length documentary Turn It Loose garnered worldwide acclaim. The film was written by Lucy Catherine and was made in collaboration with South West Screen’s iFeatures scheme.
