In an isolated area of Wales, a tormented young woman moves into an old house after her son died. With the help of an occultist, she wishes to contact her dead son. To do so, they isolate themselves completely and painstakingly follow the many steps involved in this ancient rite. A DARK SONG casts aside the tired tropes of witchcraft (rotting spinning heads and dislocated skeletons) in favour of a more modern take. This slow burner relies heavily on the psychological realism of the characters. By leveraging the themes of isolation, paranoia and guilt, Gavin delivers a nerve-wracking thriller, which traumatic conclusion will scar you for life.
