The horror is literally bone-chilling in The Dark Below, Douglas Schulze's thriller set on—and beneath—a frozen lake, and viewers will have a chance to see the movie in select theaters this March courtesy of Parade Deck Films.

Press Release: PARADE DECK FILMS to release Survival Thriller The Dark Below. In Select Theaters MARCH 10, 2017

Parade Deck Films is excited to announce the upcoming theatrical release of festival favorite The Dark Below.

For his fourth and most daring film, director Douglas Schulze (Mimesis, Dark Fields) brings us The Dark Below. This tense, fear driven film utilizes minimal dialog, portrays a woman (Lauren Mae Shafer) struggling for survival beneath a frozen lake while a serial killer (David G.B. Brown) stalks her from the surface.

“I got involved with this project because Doug Schulze knows genre and he knows film. In todays environment, The Dark Below is different. It is a classic serial killer movie but combined with an independent vision from the heartland of America. Should stand out among the movies available today.” – Seth Willenson – Executive Producer (former New Line Exec.)

“From the second I saw the film I knew we had to have it and are excited to see how audiences and critics alike react to such a brilliant and boldly creative film”, Michael Ingram, president of Parade Deck Films.

This film is brought to life by a brilliant, bone-chilling soundtrack by multiplatinum recording artist Eric Bobo (Cypress Hill, The Beastie Boys) and David Bateman, Robert Skates’ visually astonishing cinematography, Schulze’s strong directorial instincts and a searing performance from Veronica Cartwirght (Alien, 24: Legacy). The Dark Below, which played several high profile genre film festivals, including Fantasia International Film Festival, Fright-fest UK, Monsters of Film in Sweden and Fantastic Film Fest, is being lauded by critics as a, “powerful frozen solid thriller that will chill you to the bone and is a welcome and refreshing addition to a rather tired genre,” “you’ve never seen anything like it”. “A Brilliant independent film with a strong foundation in genre and a uniquely vivid vision”.
