What’s creepier than creepy kids and a creepy house? A creepy kid IN a creepy house. That’s what you get in “Don’t Look Back” director Marina De Van’s very creepy new horror flick “Dark Touch”. I got goosebumps watching the trailer for this thing. A good night kiss has never been, well, creepier.

Check out the trailer for “Dark Touch” and some images, including a poster below.

In a remote town in Ireland, eleven-year-old Neve finds herself the sole survivor of a bloody massacre that killed her parents and younger brother. Suspecting a gang of homicidal vandals, the police ignore Neve’s explanation that the house is the culprit. To help ease her trauma, dutiful neighbors Nat and Lucas take her in with the supervision of a social worker. Neve has trouble finding peace with the wholesome and nurturing couple, and horrific danger continues to manifest. Haunted objects, an eerie score and a moody, oneiric look complement this intense and frightening peek into child abuse and the searing imagination of writer/director Marina de Van.

Starring Missy Keating, Marcella Plunkett, Padraic Delaney, Catherin Walker, Richard Dormer, Charlotte Flyvholm, Stephen Wall, Susie Power, Ella Hayes, Robert Donnelly, Art Parkinson, Mark Huberman, Olgy Wehrly, and Clare Barrett.

IFC Midnight has the film scheduled for VOD and through digital outlets including iTunes and SundanceNow starting September 27th.

    Marina De Van has made some great movies, yet she doesn’t get an ounce of the publicity that the likes of Adam Green or Rob Zombie get for their juvenile pastiches..

    I guess when it comes to female horror directors all of the attention goes straight to the Soskas.
