Director Dan Bush| 2020 | Horror, Thriller, Action | English
A young woman is committed to a psychiatric hospital claiming that her newborn has been abducted by a secret society called the Dark Red — an ancient, underground cult that harvests and controls an incredibly rare blood type that gives one the power to hear and guide another person’s thoughts. She says that she is special: that she carries a pure and powerful strain of the blood like nothing seen before, and that the society sees her and her child as its next evolution — or perhaps its greatest threat, should she turn against them.
Is the Dark Red entirely a figment of her imagination — a complex coping mechanism to overcome a terrible personal tragedy — or is there some truth behind her story?
“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.”
– THE AUSTIN CHRONICLE
“THERE ARE ELEMENTS OF HORROR, DRAMA, VIOLENCE AND SUPERNATURAL, AND THE COMBINATION OF THEM ALL IS QUITE DELICIOUS.”
– ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS
“BILLINGSLEY’S ENTIRE PERFORMANCE IS NOTEWORTHY. TYPICALLY AN ACTOR WOULD ONLY HAVE TO PLAY HYSTERICALLY ERRATIC AND EMOTIONAL, OR KICK-ASS WARRIOR, BUT SHE HAS TO CONVEY BOTH WITHIN THE SAME CHARACTER, IN THE ONE FILM.”
