A new clip has been released for Justin P. Lange‘s upcoming horror flick The Dark, which involves a young undead woman who befriends a young man in the forest that she roams around. The film stars Nadia Alexander, Toby Nichols, and Karl Markovics.

In what could be the feel-bad movie of the year, Fingleton presents a gritty future, where the world’s oil supplies are depleted and the population has dwindled.
