Horror at Raindance Film Festival

This year, the Raindance Film Festival celebrates its 25th Anniversary.  As the UK’s largest independent film festival, we’re always keen to check out the line up to see what horror delights might be in store for us.

Running between 20th September and 1st October, here are three films that we’re particularly intrigued by:

Black Hollow Cage

Directed by Sadrac González-Perellón

Alice, a thirteen year-old girl, lives with her father in a huge house in the woods, following a car accident in which the girl lost her mother and part of her right arm.

Secluded and depressed, the girl forms a strong bond with Beatrice, a female wolfhound whom Alice calls ‘Mom’. One day, Alice finds a mysterious cubic device with the ability to alter the past.

The Dark Mile

Directed by Gary Love

The divide between urban and rural, technology and nature, runs throughout Gary Love’s The Dark Mile.

Like in the deep lakes and dense fog of the Scottish Highlands, something unsettling lurks just out of sight. Claire and Louise ascend from London to this rural area, coping with personal tragedy, running from the past. During their stay, both their relationship and physical safety is threatened by their surroundings.

Gary Love’s tight direction brings ambiguity and fear to several sequences, making The Dark Mile an uncertain, creepy and terrifying crawl.

The Midnighters

Directed by Julius Ramsay

While driving back from a party on New Year’s Eve, Lindsey and Jeff Pittman accidently hit a passer-by. Fearing the consequences, they put him in the back seat of their car and return home.

But the couple soon realises all is not as it seems and it’s not long before danger knocks on their door. Set against the eerie backdrop of wintry New England, The Midnighters is a burst of suspense that is full of unexpected twists and turns.
