To this movie nerd’s infinite pleasure, Australian filmmaker Gregory Connors’ gore-heavy sci-fi horror flick “The Dark Lurking” is finally coming to the US later this year. According to 24 Frames Per Second, the film will have its debut on V.O.D. sometime during the end of October/beginning of November, with a proper DVD release to follow. I first watched the trailer for this film about a year ago, and have been anxiously awaiting its Stateside debut ever since. In fact, I’d almost given up hope for a Region 1 release until this very morning. And as soon as I stumble across an official release date for the DVD, you’ll be one of the first to know.
For the uninitiated, here’s the official synopsis:
Something has gone terribly wrong at Outpost 30, a secret international research facility some five hundred meters beneath the snow blown arctic wilderness. All communications are gone, all means of escape destroyed and an extremely dangerous horde of ancient creatures is on the loose after a doorway to an unspeakable evil has been unleashed.
If that’s not enough to whet your proverbial whistle, check out the official trailer below. It’s all sorts of cool. Then again, I’m a sucker for monsters, military types, and lots of juicy bloodshed.
