Genre stars team up for The Dark Offerings, filmed during lockdown

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

Director Marcus Slabine has sent us the poster for his new film THE DARK OFFERINGS, which was shot entirely during the COVID-19 lockdown and abided by all social distancing guidelines. 

A horror fan since he saw ARMY OF DARKNESS on the big screen, Slabine was able to cast several genre stars in THE DARK OFFERINGS, including Felissa Rose (SLEEPAWAY CAMP), Terry Alexander (DAY OF THE DEAD), Tamara Glynn (HALLOWEEN 5), and Eileen Dietz (THE EXORCIST). He also wrote the screenplay with Elizabeth Piper S., an award-winning actress, producer, and FX / makeup artist who has her own line of FX blood product called Cine Blood: Type O.

The film's synopsis: 

Sophia Hapgood is thrust into a horrifying world after her brother James brings her into a fatal situation. He passes a demon to her that she must spread to others within 6 days or else they both die. Sophia must make a choice to save her brother or find a way to end the curse.

Piper S. stars alongside the aforementioned icons, as well as Clifton Dunn, Shawn C. Phillips, Paul Sheehan, Michael Leavy, Jason Leavy, Lydia Kalmen, and Tina Nikolova.

By making this film, Slabine and Piper S. were aiming to "prove that just because the industry is shut down, doesn’t mean our creativity has to as well". They're also hoping this will help "bring joy to people's threads and give the horror community something to look forward to and an entertaining distraction from the real world."

The poster for THE DARK OFFERINGS can be seen below. Check it out, and we'll keep you updated on this one as more information is made available.
