While scanning the web for some new and interesting vampire films I came across an upcoming film titled The Harsh Light of Day. Written and directed by Oliver Milburn this British horror movie is currently slated to be released in 2012. From what I read in the plot description and saw in the trailer The Harsh Light of Day may be perfect for those looking for a harder vampire film.
“After returning home from the launch of his book about the occult, Daniel Shergold’s house is broken into by thugs, who beat his wife to death and leave him paralyzed. A depressed agoraphobic in his secluded country cottage, Daniel mourns the death of his wife while being cared for by home nurse, Fiona. He is unable to accept the lack of success the police have in finding his wife’s killers. Daniel accepts a visit from a mysterious stranger who insists he can help him reap revenge. He agrees and is thrown into a strange and horrific transition into darkness. With renewed strength, Daniel sets out to avenge his wife’s murder, but at what cost?”
Check out the trailer below:
This definitely isn’t your average vampire flick, that’s for sure. However, there is a voice in the back of my head screaming for me to remember something. I can’t quite put my finger on it but this storyline seems so incredibly familiar to me, I feel like I read it before. Hmm… perhaps I am imagining things. Anyway, The Harsh Light of Day definitely sounds like it could be an impressive low-budget film. I really like that they didn’t choose to go the cliché and boring vampire route that so many others have before them.
