The Dark Red – USA, 2018 – now with first trailer

The Dark Red is a 2018 American horror thriller feature film in which a young woman is committed to a psychiatric hospital and claims her newborn was stolen by a dark cult…

Directed by Dan Bush (The Vault; The Reconstruction of William Zero; The Signal) from a screenplay co-written with Conal Byrne (who also stars), the Psychopia Pictures production also headlines April Billingsley, Bernard Setaro Clark and Jill Jane Clements.


” …think Mandy without Panos Cosmatos’ lysergic visual lyricism. It would, of course, be harsh to expect anyone to match that neon- and gore-drenched masterpiece, but Bush undoubtedly takes the gloves off in this lo-fi scorcher. The Dark Red isn’t afraid to get a little bloody, and it’s all the more entertaining for it.” Richard Whittaker, The Austin Chronicle


The Dark Red premiered at the 2018 Austin Film Festival in Texas on October 29. The film will be shown at the 2019 Arrow Video FrightFest in London on 24 August.
