ABOUT SO DARK....

In 2009, James Williams asked himself what would happen if a Twilight fan met a real vampire? From that single idea James penned a script called "So Pretty" and in 2012 it was turned into an exciting new short film. In 2013 we followed up with a sequel to So Pretty that we called "So Dark". 

So Pretty proved that there was an audience out there that were sick of the modern spin on Vampires (ie Twilight). It instantly gained nearly 100,000 views on Youtube and created a core fan base. We've had some great press coverage from the likes of Ain't It Cool News, Film School Rejects, GeekTyrant, Bloody-Disgusting and more.

So Pretty, the pilot for the original series, "So Dark", takes a trip on a night train to find out why the cursed don't sparkle! A finalist at RED's Shot On Red Film Festival in 2012, this short 4K no-budget horror was shot in under 10 hours on a train in Miami. It was shot on the RED Epic-X camera.

After the huge success of So Pretty, we decided to make another film, a sequel to So Pretty. We completed this film in May 2013 and called it "So Dark". Following his actions in the first film, Sean, a 200-year-old vampire with a conscience, has now been arrested for murdering a pedophile on a late-night Miami train. Unaware that they have a vampire in their custody, Miami Police hand the investigation over to F.B.I. agent Wilburn, who is the head of a clandestine task force that hunts, tortures, and kills vampires. As sunrise approaches, Sean must find a way to escape or risk becoming one of her experiments.

Smartly set up, gracefully executed conversation with a brutal reality at its core.

So Dark involves an amazing all-Florida cast including Jeremy Palko (The Walking Dead, Bloodline, Vampire Diaries) as the cursed vampire Sean , Keri Maletto (Devious Maids, Patient Killer, Blood Dust and Banjos) as the cold-blooded FBI Agent Wilburn and Julie Kendall (Girls Gone Dead, 5th of a Degree), as a woman down on her luck who wants to become a vampire like Sean. The film also has a great supporting cast including Todd Bruno (Film Riot, Tell) and Wil Jackson.
