BOTF: The Dark Mile

Part of the Best of the Fest Strand


A tense psychological horror-thriller, The Dark Mile blends The Wicker Man and Duel and comes up with a film rich in atmosphere and tension. London couple Louise and Clare (Rebecca Calder and Deirdre Mullins) book a sailing trip in the Highlands to recover from a personal tragedy. The location may be idyllic but soon they are tormented by a black industrial barge that follows them, and by the dysfunctional folk on board... Hints of the occult and paganism point to dark times ahead as the tension mounts. [15]
