On April 10, indie horror feature We Summon The Darkness will debut for digital streaming platforms, including Amazon, iTunes and VOD, after its theatrical run was abandoned due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The heavy-metal, horror thriller that premiered earlier this year at Screamfest Horror Film Festival in Hollywood, stars Alexandra Daddario, Maddie Hasson and Johnny Knoxville, and features Tanner Beard in the role of the sheriff.
On the way to a heavy metal concert, Alexis (Daddario) and two girlfriends hear a news report of a local murder believed to be tied to a series of Satanic killings. After the show, the girls invite three guys to join them at the estate owned by Alexis’ father, a fire-and-brimstone preacher (Knoxville). What starts as a party suddenly turns dark and deadly in this devilishly entertaining thriller.
Founder and president of Mammoth Film Festival, Beard has acted in a slew of notable projects, such as Robert Rodriguez’ From Dusk Till Dawn The Series, Barracuda, Deported, Hidden In The Woods, Thunder Broke the Heavens, The Legend of Hell’s Gate, 6 Bullets To Hell, and many more.
Working in the industry as an actor, writer, director and producer, Beard created Silver Sail Entertainment during the industry strike in 2008 as a source to create professional media content. He since has produced numerous projects, including a travel show, award-winning short films and documentaries, commercials, music videos, two seasons of a Web-based television series and feature films, including the critically acclaimed Hellion starring Aaron Paul and Juliette Lewis, and The Legend of Hell’s Gate, starring Eric Balfour, Henry Thomas and Jenna Dewan Tatum.
As a producer, he has had films and documentaries in competition at top festivals around the world, including Sundance, Berlin, Cannes, Venice, SXSW and Toronto, in addition to his own festival.
