The Dare

THE DARE is a classic locked room horror. Kidnapped from the safety of his home, Jay (Bart Edwards, THE SINGAPORE GRIP/ Mammoth Screen) regains consciousness to find himself chained to the wall of a cold and filthy basement. He’s not alone – there are three others with him, also chained up and bloodied.

Why are they here? What could they have done to deserve this hell? As the sands run out on their time together, Jay and his fellow captives unravel the threads to uncover how they are connected, and how once upon a time, they did something that brought them to this violent and bloody place.

“A cerebral take on old school clichés with full bodied characters, an unusually sympathetic antagonist, gory visuals and creative cinematography. This solid debut ranks amongst the best horror movies of the year. Highly recommended.” Popcorn Frights 

Directed by Giles Alderson, starring Richard Brake (GAME OF THRONES) and Richard Short (MARY KILLS PEOPLE / Cameron Pictures). Produced by Nu Boyana Studios, sales agents Millennium Films (both HELLBOY).
