‘She’s waiting for you’
Dark Vale is a 2017 British supernatural horror feature film written and directed by Jason M.J. Brown (Dead Girl Walking; City of Decay); it stars Cara Middleton, Ciara A. Lyons and Darren Whitfield.

While exploring the ancient ruins of a church in the countryside, a young couple is stalked and haunted by the vengeful spirit of Lady Lucy, who was murdered at the vale over a century ago on her wedding day…

“Ultimately, Dark Vale might have been a reasonable short film, but it ended up being a feature-length slog. It does show some promise, though unfortunately it does not make up for its own faults.  In fact, the faults only become more apparent as the film goes on and work against its pluses. What is a movie fan to do? Give this one a miss…” Cryptic Rock

” …Dark Vale is a pretty cool ghost story that avoids spoon-feeding the audience its premise, story and set of rules, but keeps them in the dark and guessing to the very end, just like the lead characters, who are thrown into a world they at first fail to understand and that’s only unveiling its secrets gradually to not at all.” Search My Trash
