Let's get right to the point: 2013 was not exactly a banner year for our beloved horror genre. Oh sure, you'll always find a good batch a horror flicks over any 12-month period, but if you scour the 2013 release calendar you'll notice that A) Hollywood studios released very few horror flicks this year, and B) the indie filmmaker and distributors (as usual) really stepped in to fill that void.
'Dark Touch' opens in select theaters and will be available to watch on Cable VOD, SundanceNOW and other digital outlets (iTunes, Amazon Streaming, PS3 Playstation Unlimited, XBOX Zune, Google PLAY and YouTube) starting September 27th.
If you wanted to describe the excellent new horror film from Ireland called Dark Touch as "Carrie Junior," you wouldn't be all that much off the mark, at least not on a surface level.
In DARK TOUCH, European director and provocateur Marina de Van transfers her now recurring theme of identity crisis and unsure footing from grown women to a young girl still in pre-pubescence.
