A feature-length supernatural thriller, Something in the Dark is about a pair of mysterious eyewear that allow a blind woman to see ghosts. But since they let her see real people as well, she is unable to distinguish between the living and the dead. She soon glimpses Death itself stalking her and must discover why it has come for her.
A “Talkless” Film
Unlike a true silent film, Something in the Dark still contains recorded sound. It merely lacks dialogue. In other words, there is literally not a single word spoken in this entire film. As such, we have coined it a “talkless” film instead.
The aim is to create a more involving and creepy experience which plays exactly the same to any audience, regardless of what language they speak, without distracting subtitles or voice dubbing. This format is intended to be the next big trend since the “found footage” craze began with The Blair Witch Project. This widens our market for the film, making it more profitable, while also saving time and money in preparing the feature for each geographical region.
Something in the Dark is basically a ghost story, but plays on many different levels including drama, action and humor. The aim is to create a constant creepy feeling that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, versus displays of stark violence or gore. It’s more elegant than that, expressing even a level of beauty to the macabre subject matter. There really isn’t another film we can liken it to; which is good in a genre filled with unoriginal material.
As of early 2017, production of the film is 80% complete.
In the meantime, we are shopping for a distributor. Although we have been in talks with several parties, the perfect-world scenario is to hold out for one with potential for a theatrical release. Any interested parties are urged to contact us.
