Death hangs above the family farm like a dark cloud. Not just because the pater familias is wasting away inside, inching closer to the hereafter with every rattling breath: Soon after his children arrive in the tenebrous house, they are plagued by eerie visions, while the priest is not the only one who suspects that evil has crept into the farm. Bryan Bertino’s stylistically stunning films always revolve around a deceptively simple departure point, but there’s an ominous core quivering underneath. The Dark and the Wicked is a rural gothic naturally lit in elegance and perfection, carried by a fine ensemble, and casting a long shadow.

Bryan Bertino
is a writer/director who made his feature film debut with The Strangers (2008), starring Liv Tyler. The film grossed over 80 million worldwide, and is considered by many a modern classic in the genre. After the success of The Strangers, Bryan became one of the most sought-after genre writers in town, working with top-shelf producers such as Sam Raimi and Jerry Bruckheimer, to name a few. He partnered with producer Adrienne Biddle in 2009 to form Unbroken Pictures, a company devoted to fostering quality genre material, as well as to craft projects for him to direct. Bertino has also created a television series for SyFy called The Rattle, and Mr. Little§, a feature for Fox Searchlight.
