Something supernatural is waiting for Madison when she returns to her childhood home, and it isn't exactly rolling out the welcome mat in Darkness Rising, a new horror film from IFC Midnight. Ahead of the film's release later this month, a new set of stills and a motion poster hint at the horrors to come.

Directed by Austin Reading from a screenplay by Vikram Weet, Darkness Rising stars Tara Holt, Katrina Law, Bryce Johnson, Heather Mazur, and Ted Raimi. IFC Midnight will release Darkness Rising in theaters and on VOD beginning June 30th.

"A house’s horrifying secrets are resurrected in this blood-drenched supernatural nightmare. For years, Madison (Katrina Law) has been tormented by the memories of a traumatic childhood incident: when she was a girl, her mother murdered her younger sister, and nearly killed Madison, too. Joined by her fiancé (Bryce Johnson) and cousin (Tara Holt), the now-adult Madison returns to the home where it happened just before it’s slated to be demolished. Seeking closure, the trio instead find themselves ensnared by the same evil presence that drove Madison’s mother to unthinkable violence. It soon looks like history may repeat itself… Cult horror icon Ted Raimi co-stars."
