In the last few years there’s been a concerted effort to expand gay-themed film from the realms of drama and comedy. That continues with the thriller The Dark Place, which has been finding success of the LGBT film festival circuit and will be heading to DVD and VOD in the US on December 2nd, 2014.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Long estranges from his widowed mother, Keegan Dark is blessed with the uncanny ability to remember his life in videographic detail. And cursed by it as well — he’s unable to forget any of his life’s numerous tragedies. He returns, boyfriend in tow, to his family’s vineyard estate to ﬁnally make amends, and is shocked to discover that his mother has remarried. He suddenly has a stepfather and stepbrother, both far more perfect than he could ever hope to be.
‘As Keegan resigns himself to forever being on the outs, a series of mysterious – and ominous – events unfold, forcing Keegan to unravel a conspiracy that frames him for murder, threatens his inheritance, and endangers his family’s lives and livelihood.’
The film’s cast includes Blaise Embry as Keegan Dark, Timo Descamps as Wil Roelen and Sean Paul Lockhart as Jake Bishop.
