by Thomas Tuna

Horror fans embrace the darkness–right?

Nyctophobia–defined as the “extreme or irrational fear of the night or of darkness”–is the unusual title of a new horror film that starts shooting later this month, according to a report on Deadline.

Nyctophobia–directed by Kim Noonan (Radio 88) from a screenplay by Koji Steven Sakai (The Commando)–follows twin sisters Rose (Bianca D’Ambrosio) and Azalea (Chiara D’Ambrosio), along with their friend Brooks (B.J. Tanner), as they find themselves “trapped in a supernatural blackout in which monsters are real,” according to the synopsis. “Their only hope comes from the light of their cellphone.”

The film also stars Dana Powell (Battlecreek), Sean O’Bryan (Olympus Has Fallen) and Dean McDermott (Slasher).

Sakai also serves as producer, along with Stanley Yung, Brian Tedeschi and Vicki Vass. Executive producers include RZA,  Mike Smith, Mike Meade and Pascal Counts.
