Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #132. Paul Solet’s Dark Summer

Dark Summer

Director: Paul Solet
Writer: Mike Le
Producer: Ross M. Dinerstein
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Peter Stormare, Grace Phipps, Keir Gilcrhist

After the success of his delightfully creepy 2009 debut, Grace, director Paul Solet returns with this thriller headlined by the young star of It’s Kind of a Funny Story, and, even more excitingly, Peter Stormare. While his last film was developed from his own short, we’re curious to see how Solet branches out in genre and this next effort should give us a definite indication, with enough scant details to garner some interest.

Gist: A highly stylized modern ghost story, the film follows Daniel Williamson, a 17 year-old on house arrest for the summer. With his mother away on business, a horrifying incident occurs, followed by an even more terrifying presence in the house.

Release Date: We’re hoping to see this in something like TIFF’s Midnight Madness line-up.
