Producer/Director Emma Dark has just released the teaser trailer for her highly anticipated new film ‘Seize the Night’. This action-horror hybrid has vampires and werewolves portrayed in a way audiences won’t have seen them before. Principal photography is now complete and post-production is in full swing.
Check out the film’s trailer below.
The trailer has been edited by Ms Dark, who has assumed many roles on the project including the part of lead character Eva. The final ‘gloss’ was provided in the form of VFX from up and coming VFX artist Davy Simmons and a unique score from US based composer Eric Elick.
Emma had this to say about the trailer release “Finally I’ve been able to put out a little taster to show off everyone’s hard work on the project. Yes it’s my vision but having such an amazingly talented and professional cast and crew on board, as dedicated as I am to excellence, has really brought that vision to life. It’s my first truly serious film and one I hope to blow people socks off with. I look forward to putting Seize the Night out on the film festival circuit later this year.”
The synopsis reads: “SEIZE THE NIGHT is an original British independent horror short by Emma Dark. The film will be a high octane thrill ride influenced by the likes of Blade, Underworld, Dracula 2001, True Blood and Razor Blade Smile. The story follows EVA, a renegade vampire assassin, on her action filled journey to the truth. The film opens shortly after she has escaped from a secret government compound, a center for the most nefarious biological experiments. Following her escape Eva is confronted by her life long enemy and is forced into a situation of such gravity she may have to deal with the devil she knows best in order to fight a far greater evil.”
Former model turned actress and filmmaker Emma Dark has been a huge horror and sci-fi fan from a very early age. She stores her macabre DVD collection in replica sarcophagi and coffins, including an original Hammer films prop casket, which was later used by Cradle of Filth in concert.
