The found-footage horror film The Darkest Dawn stars Bethan Leadley, Cherry Wallis, and Stuart Ashen, and is set to be released on 30 October.
Wildseed Studios also produced Hungerford, the first in the film series, in which “the lives of a group of teenagers are turned upside down when their town is taken over by sinister forces”. The sequel introduces a new set of characters, now intertwined in the aftermath.
Following the announcement, several people have also tweeted their excitement for the film’s release:
Saw the trailer for #thedarkestdawn and I'm not gonna lie I'm slightly terrified but am also in awe of the acting and directing :)
