Dizzying teaser for Mickey Keating’s Darling

Mickey Keating’s latest genre outing takes him down a chilling black-and-white psychological nightmare with Darling, starring horror favorite Lauren Ashley CarterWe just saw the release of Keating’s last film a couple of weeks ago—the sci-fi chiller Pod (read my review)—so it’s surprising that we’re already seeing the teaser for his next film; the dude likes to work! What we have today is the teaser trailer for Darling as well as a wicked cool poster that promises “terror beyond comprehension”.

The teaser is a dizzying slice of psycho-horror that looks and sounds like it was plucked out of the ’70s thrillers of old. This looks like a fascinating venture for Keating and I can’t wait to hear what kind of response it gets out of its its World Premiere at Fantastic fest later this month. Dig in below!

It follows a lonely young woman who moves into an old, mysterious Manhattan mansion. Hired as caretaker, it’s not long before she discovers the estate’s haunted reputation and troubling past— stories that slowly transform into a backdrop for her twisted and violent descent into madness…

It stars Lauren Ashley Carter, Brian Morvant, Sean Young, Larry Fessenden, John Speredakos, and Helen Rogers.

  1. The retro-early-sixties poster really sells it: it’s hard to argue with a movie that offers “terror beyond comprehension” in pink script. It recalls the promo sheets for the great “Eyes Without a Face,” so let’s hope it’s even a fraction as good as that one.

  2. I know this isn’t necessarily a “beautiful” film, but the black and white is gorgeous. It looks like the perfect choice for this film. I love it when modern filmmakers use black & white – it seems like such a bold choice.

    1. Totally agree. The black and white take on the film is going to be a tough sell for a lot of people, but it looks like it really works here. It looks great, that’s for sure!
