To many Pollyanna McIntosh will be always known as Jadis from The Walking Dead. To horror fans the 2011 Lucky McKee film she will always be ‘The Woman’. Eight years later she’s returning to the film in her directorial feature debut with Darlin’.
Dark Sky Films has released an Trailer that reminds us Don’t Mess With Mother Nature. However that would not be the making of a movie and Lauryn Canny is our feral teenager, Darlin’. She finds herself under the care of an Catholic Bishop and nuns. She holds a dark secret…
Darlin’ will be playing at this month’s Edinburgh Film Festival [more info here], below is an Festival version of the Trailer…
Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin’ (Lauryn Canny) is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop (Bryan Batt, AMC’s Mad Men) and his obedient nuns where she is to be tamed into a “good girl.” However, Darlin’ holds a secret darker than the “sins” she is threatened with, and she is not traveling alone. The Woman (Pollyanna McIntosh, The Walking Dead), equally fierce and feral, who raised her is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.
Bryan Batt, Nora-Jane Noone, Cooper Andrews (Jerry from The Walking Dead, Shazam!), and Pollyanna McIntosh.
There’s No UK Release date just yet apart from the UK Premiere at Edinburgh. That date will be 25th June as part of an double bill with The Woman. The American release date will get a limited theatre release and VOD Release on 12th July.
