I’ve made it no secret how much I absolutely loved Mickey Keating (RITUAL, POD, the upcoming CARNAGE PARK)’s hallucinatory head trip of a film, DARLING. A unique film that puts you through a beautiful descent into madness, the film knocked my ass on the ground when I was able to catch it during last year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX (review). Produced by Glass Eye Pix and starring Lauren Ashley Carter (POD, JUG FACE), Brian Morvant (POD, THE MIND’S EYE), Sean Young (BLADE RUNNER) and Larry Fessenden (YOU’RE NEXT, WE ARE STILL HERE), the film was acquire by Screen Media Films soon after its Fantastic Fest showing and it looks like we now have a release date, along with a pretty nice poster and trailer to go along with it.
Lauren Ashley Carter gives a riveting performance as a lonely girl that slowly and violently loses her mind while house sitting for a wealthy socialite (Sean Young).
Meet DARLING when Screen Media Films releases the film in theaters/VOD on April 1st.
