Interview: ‘A Dark Song’ writer/director Liam Gavin

by Stuart Wright

In his latest interview/podcast, host Stuart Wright talks to A Dark Song writer/director Liam Gavin about one of the best British horror films of the last decade.

Sophia (Walker) is grief-stricken and overwhelmed with sadness since the untimely death of her son. In a desperate attempt to achieve some form of closure, she reaches out to Solomon (Oram), an occultist with experience in an ancient invocation ritual that Sophia believes will allow her to make contact with her deceased child. Locked away in a remote country house, the pair undergo a long and arduous ritual, risking both their mental and physical safety as they attempt to access a world beyond their understanding. But when Solomon finds out that Sophia has not been truthful about her wish, a greater danger threatens them. In the dark, they find that they are no longer alone in the house. They are now in the world of real angels, and real demons.

A Dark Song deserves to reach a much bigger audience. Don’t believe us, why not listen to director Scott Derrickson (Sinister, Dr Strange). He tweeted that A Dark Song is: “Astonishing, harrowing, disturbing and sublime. Reminded me of Martyrs in how far it was willing to go with its uncommonly dark spirituality.”
