NEW RELEASE UPDATE: From the Dark Coming From Dark Sky Films Wraps Production

Did you love Stitches? I love Stitches. It was a gory fun time that had some traditional dark clown themes with plenty of creative kills and near 1980's level horror humor. Connor McMahon, the man behind Stitches, has just wrapped his new production, From The Dark, for MPI/Dark Sky which means we're going to see if he can carry some of that monster movie charm to an ancient bog monster of pure evil (the word bog used in the release below is enough to tantalize). 

Full release notes from Dark Sky Films:

FROM THE DARK, THE LATEST FILM FROM CONOR MCMAHON (
STITCHES), HAS OFFICIALLY WRAPPED PRODUCTION IN LAOIS, IRELAND 

MPI/Dark Sky Films announced the end of principal photography on FROM THE DARK, the latest film from Conor McMahon, director of the successful STITCHES. Produced by MPI Pictures Dublin in partnership with Workshed films, FROM THE DARK was shot on location in Laois, Ireland. The film stars Niamh Algar, Stephen Cromwell and Gerry O'Brien (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest).

A tense and frightening film, FROM THE DARK tells the story a young couple embark on a road trip through the Irish countryside, car trouble lands them in an place that few people would choose to visit. When something sinister is awakened from a thousand year slumber, deep within the dark bog, the couple is faced with an unimaginable evil. They soon realize that light is their only protector, but as the sun sets and light sources dwindle, the creature becomes more powerful, and they are in a fight for their lives.

Greg Newman, Executive Vice President of MPI Media Group, said: "McMahon has always had a unique cinematic vision and we're thrilled to bring his fresh and twisted take to the genre in yet another one of his films."

The movie is the latest original production coming from MPI Media Group's genre arm, Dark Sky Films, whose recent productions include The Innkeepers, Stake Land, Late Phases, Frankenstein's Army, Here Comes The Devil and others.
