The teaser trailer for upcoming horror feature film ‘The Dark Below’ has been released along with a very slimy poster for the Lovecraft inspired independent film. The Dark Below is a psychological horror film about a young scientist whose discovery of a malevolent entity sets her on a bloody descent into the jaws of insanity. Blending the gut wrenching futility felt in Lovecraft’s best work with slimy practical creature and gore effects, the film promises to bring you a deeply disturbing new addition to the international horror scene. Check out the trailer, synopsis and more past the break!
“During a traumatic accident whilst on a deep-sea dive in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, Olive, a gifted, young marine-biologist discovers an unearthly creature. Loosing her dream job, Olive smuggles the creature home, intent on studying it in her basement, unbeknownst to her devoted boyfriend Matt. Whilst struggling to re-adjust to landlocked life and recover from her recent trauma, Olive begins to realize that she and the creature share a symbiotic bond that drives her to carry out its sinister will.
Plagued by gruesome nightmares, her fractured memories of what happened during the accident in the depths of the ocean begin to unravel and reveal an eldritch horror far older and malevolent than she could ever imagine, one which she has unwittingly set free. Olive’s obsession leads to madness as her discovery consumes her entire humanity, with deadly results for those around her.”
The film is the feature film debut of director Stewart Sparke and writer Paul Butler, two independent filmmakers from England looking to bring this unique British horror film to audiences. “We want the viewer to feel the stomach curdling dread of knowing that there are unfathomable creatures slumbering in the dark places of the world and see the consequences if we wake them” writer Paul Butler says of the story they are telling. “Anna Dawson (Olive) did an unsettlingly good job embodying the role of a woman slowly loosing her grip on reality and the audience should be prepared to be dragged along for her descent into the dark below.”
Director Stewart Sparke explains why gore fans and devotees of old school practical creature effects will find something to enjoy “You will see the monster go through a few stages in its life cycle on its way to becoming an eldritch horror worthy of Lovecraft. Every day of shooting ended with cast and crew covered in blood and slime, which comes through in some particularly disturbing and visceral sequences in the film”.
The Dark Below is currently in post-production and will be entering the festival circuit seeking distribution in early 2016.

McCasland had been carrying the Tailypo story around for years stating, “The first time I heard this legend I was in elementary school, and my teacher told it to us around Halloween. It always stuck with me, and creeped me out. I wanted to tell it again, in a way that was frightening, but still accessible in the same way it was to me as a kid.” Read more »

Living in the same universe as The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark and English teacher Travis Manawa have managed to assemble. The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and our dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.
