Congratulations to the team of the upcoming thriller Coming Home In The Dark which has received not one but two international festival selections for August!
Produced by WIFT NZ members Catherine Fitzgerald and Desray Armstrong the film will premiere in Québec with Fantasia International Film Festival, screening online in Official Selection August 5-25. Fantasia has called the film “a masterful feature debut”.
FrightFest will then premiere the film in the UK, calling it an “electrifying thriller” and screening in cinema (August 26-30).
The film is released in New Zealand on 12 August.
Here's a quick plot outline to whet your appetite: a family's trip through the New Zealand wilderness turns into a nightmare when they're suddenly confronted by a pair of drifters. What initially seems like a random attack proves otherwise, when secrets start to come to light. Starring Daniel Gillies (The Originals) and Miriama McDowell (pictured, Waru).
The film is based on NZ author Owen Marshall's short story of the same name.
