The Dark Below (currently in post-production) is a British psychological horror film about a young scientist whose discovery of a malevolent entity sets her on a bloody descent into the jaws of insanity.
Blending the gut wrenching futility felt in HP Lovecraft’s best work with slimy practical creature and gore effects, the film promises to bring you a deeply disturbing new addition to the international horror scene.
During a traumatic accident whilst on a deep-sea dive in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, Olive (Anna Dawson), a gifted, young marine-biologist discovers an unearthly creature. Loosing her dream job, Olive smuggles the creature home, intent on studying it in her basement, unbeknownst to her loving boyfriend Matt (Daniel Thrace). Whilst struggling to re-adjust to landlocked life and recover from her recent trauma, Olive begins to realize that she and the creature share a symbiotic bond that drives her to carry out its sinister will.
Plagued by gruesome nightmares, her fractured memories of what happened during the accident in the depths of the ocean begin to unravel and reveal an eldritch horror far older and malevolent than she could ever imagine, one which she has unwittingly set free. Olive's obsession leads to madness as her discovery consumes her entire humanity, with deadly results for those around her.
