Coming Home In The Dark Is Now Coming To Cinemas And VOD Platforms

    At Sundance 2021, Coming Home in the Dark was a smash hit. Those of us who weren’t able to attend can now look forward to seeing the stunning New Zealand film when Dark Sky Films releases it in select cinemas and on VOD platforms on October 1st. Check out the Coming Home in the Dark trailer.

    James Ashcroft directs Coming Home in the Dark, which stars Daniel Gillies, Erik Thomson, Miriama McDowell, and Matthias Luafutu and is based on a script he co-wrote with Eli Kent.

    The plot summary is as follows. When high school teacher Alan ‘Hoaggie’ Hoaganraad, his wife Jill, and stepsons Maika and Jordon unexpectedly come across a pair of murderous drifters – the enigmatic psychopath Mandrake and his hulking man-child accomplice Tubs – thwy are thrust into a nightmare of a road trip and their idyllic outing turns into terror. At first, the family’s terror appears to be the result of a chance encounter with two sociopaths, but as the night progresses, Hoaggie and Jill realise that this nightmare was set in motion 20 years ago, and as they near their mysterious final destination, Mandrake reveals the horrifying secret that has driven his actions. ​

    Coming Home in the Dark has been picked up by Dark Sky Films for a fall release, and the studio has released a new teaser and poster to offer fans a taste of what to anticipate. However, despite this excellent trailer, I don’t believe it really prepares you for how hard this film puts its characters and by extension, the audience, through the wringer metaphorically. It claimed major success and positive reviews in Sundance so we only have good things to look forward to when it comes to Ashcroft’s directorial debut.

    The Sundance Film Festival is the ultimate gathering of creative storytellers and moviegoers looking for new perspectives and voices.
