What is Something In The Dark About?

A feature-length supernatural thriller, Something In The Dark is about a pair of mysterious goggles which allow a blind woman to see ghosts. But since they let her see real people as well, she is unable to distinguish between the living and the dead. She soon glimpses Death itself stalking her and must discover why it has come for her.

Starring actress and model, Sophie Turner, Something In The Dark is a chilling yet elegant ghost story with many twists and turns and plays on many different levels including drama, action and humor. The aim is to create a constant creepy feeling versus displays of stark violence or gore. It's more elegant than that, expressing even a level of beauty to the scary subject matter. There really isn't another film we can liken it to, which is good in a genre filled with unoriginal material.

A "Talkless" Film

An unusual aspect of this movie is its "talkless" format, where literally not a single word is spoken throughout the film. But unlike a true silent film, it still contains recorded sound. It merely lacks dialogue. The aim is to create a more involving and creepy experience which plays exactly the same to any audience, regardless of what language they speak, without distracting subtitles or voice dubbing. This format is intended to be the next big trend since the last "found footage" craze began with The Blair Witch Project and later, Paranormal Activity.

Original Score

The entire score will be orchestral in style; a blend of eerie and beautiful music. Though composed and rendered on computer, each individual note was recorded from actual instruments of the highest caliber. Click on the "Gallery" tab toward the top of this page to hear a couple of samples.

Costume Tests

Sophie Turner Argues Pantie Lines and Full Brief Panties

Most of our discussions about Sophie's costume revolved around her panties, actually. The idea is that her character, being blind, would opt for undergarments which are more comfortable over fashionable. With that, she wears full-brief underwear, panty lines and all. It could be argued, however, that there is a certain sex appeal in clearly seeing a woman's underwear through her clothes. It might also be argued that the cut of full-brief underwear adds to the curvy look of a woman's shape, while a more "cut-in" style distorts her rounded form instead. Perhaps a point of controversy, but tell us what you think!

Sophie Turner

Something In The Dark stars actress and model Sophie Turner, who has recently completed The Devil's Dozen, directed by Jeremy London and stars Eric Roberts and Jake Busey. (below)

Sophie Turner in "The Devil's Dozen."

Her character in Something In the Dark is basically a blind bitch. She feels responsible for her son's recent death and begins the story on a self-destructive path through substance abuse and personal neglect. As things progress, she is forced to confront recent tragedies and rise above her personal fears in finding something to live for and eventually fight for.

A few years back, Sophie starred in Search for a Supermodel, the Australian reality TV series surrounding the famed Ford Models' Supermodel of the World competition.

Immediately post-Supermodel, Sophie was signed to the prestigious Ford Models Agency in the USA, where she was quickly nicknamed "The Saucy Aussie." Turner graced runways all over the planet from Japan to the United States, working for high profile brands Bill Blass, Nicole Miller, Ed Hardy and Rene Rofe. In demand by many top designers, Turner's modeling success swelled into the commercial, swimsuit and glamour print arenas, where she found her niche in swimsuit and lingerie. Sophie has graced the glossy pages of countless highly-respected magazines all over the globe.

In recent years, Sophie became an internet sensation, a paparazzi favorite, and a gossip magazine's treat. In 2010, Ms. Turner was dubbed the 2nd top Google search in the world after being caught in a celebrity battle of the derrieres with Kim Kardashian. Sophie's famous curves have appeared on Sports Illustrated, FHM and Maxim's coveted sites, and have adorned the pages of Playboy.

Never shy of hard work, Sophie remarkably earned a law degree while performing the demands of her busy modeling career. Boasting beauty and brains, Ms. Turner's goal of becoming an attorney was recently solidified when she earned her Master of Laws, specializing in Entertainment Law, at UCLA.

Date of Release
