Scream Horror Scribe Tyler Hisel & Exec. Producer Alex Robb Talk Dark Was the Night
Today marks the US release of the small-town creature feature Dark Was the Night which promises to provide so much more than your garden-variety monster movie as the film’s scribe, Tyler Hisel pitches it as a family drama that also just happens to be a creature movie.
Helmed by Jack Heller and starring Kevin Durand alongside the likes of Lukas Haas, Steve Agee, Nick Damici and Bianca Kajlich, Dark Was the Night is set in the secluded and peaceful town of Maiden Woods where the local community is shaken up following a spate of increasingly violent and incomprehensible events. The already afflicted Sheriff Paul Shields (Durand) and his deputy (Haas) struggle to confront their own personal demons whilst being forced to make a stand against a new breed of terror that is possibly older than humanity itself… And much, much hungrier.
To celebrate the release of the film SCREAM’s Howard Gorman caught up with writer Tyler Hisel and Executive Producer Alex Robb to find out just what monstrosity is lurking in them there woods…
