Black Eyes: Marina de Van’s “DARK TOUCH” Gets First PosterMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
Marina de Van, the filmmaker behind the intensely graphic IN MY SKIN and stylish thriller DON’T LOOK BACK has turned her eye to a child’s tale of horror. DARK TOUCH is a thrilling, Ireland-set film about a girl followed by destruction and may be the cause of it. The first poster certainly tips a hat to that with the innocent face of young Missy Keating, given the blackest eyes.
In DARK TOUCH, 11 year-old Neve is the lone survivor of a massacre that takes her entire family. A frightful power she possesses is the cause and the unsettling themes at play, coupled with de Van’s provocative filmmaking make this a must-see. I loved it at Tribeca and while we haven’t seen this October’s CARRIE redo just yet, it’s almost certain DARK TOUCH plays it much less safe.
