The film is directed by Victor Salva, of Jeepers Creepers 1 & 2, Rites of Passage,Clownhouse, that one film Powder. I’m not sure this lives up to his past work, but it doesn’t look too bad. The trailer may seem tame at first, but the action ramps up in the second half with lots of axe violence.
Dark House is the story of Nick Di Santo (Kleintank), who is tormented by his ability to touch someone and see exactly how they will die. On his 23rd birthday Nick is summoned by his mother (Leslie-Anne Down) to the asylum where she has been institutionalized since his childhood. Hoping that her request to see him is a sign of improvement, Nick is stunned by her revelation that the father he thought was dead is really alive. He is alive and may know the origin of Nick’s terrible gift. Nick sets out to find his father with his best friend Ryan (Anthony Rey Perez) and girlfriend Eve (Alex McKenna). The trio are soon alarmed as every road they take leads them to the same abandoned mansion, a house that only exists in Nick’s childhood imagination.
Victor Salva’s Dark House will be showing in limited theaters in New York and Los Angeles to start, on March 14th
