Trailer for IFC Midnight release A Dark Song shows a twisted magic ritual

A Dark Song Liam Gavin

Back in November, IFC Midnight acquired the US distribution rights for writer/director Liam Gavin's Irish/Welsh psychological horror film A DARK SONG. If the film caught your attention then, you'll be glad to hear that it is now scheduled for a theatrical and VOD release on April 28th.

A DARK SONG stars Catherine Walker, Steve Oram, Mark Huberman, and Susan Loughnane in the story of 

a determined young woman who hires a damaged occultist to conduct a magical ritual. The two prepare in a remote house over the course of six months, aware that any flaw in their preparations will result in deadly consequences. Risking their lives and souls, they enter the dangerous, unknown world of dark magic in the hopes it will grant them the one thing they want above all else. 

A trailer for A DARK SONG can be seen below, and judging from that it's a bit of an understatement to call the occultist "damaged". The guy comes off as such a creep in this preview, it looks like the woman has hired a sexual predator to conduct her magic ritual.

If you're in the UK, you'll have a chance to see A DARK SONG three weeks earlier than those of us in the States - the film will be released in theatres there on April 7th.

A DARK SONG was produced by David Collins, Tim Dennison, and Cormac Fox. Funding was provided by the Irish Film Board and Ffilm Cymru Wales.
