New Edinburgh feature film DARK SENSE is released online on Amazon Prime and on DVD on the 13th of September 2019.
It’s not just the Avengers and the Fast and Furious that are making the most of Scotland’s fantastic scenery and stunning locations. New independent thriller DARK SENSE is the ambitious debut feature film of Scottish director Magnus Wake. Wake says, “We wanted to make a film set in Scotland that was about telling a great story, that would entertain. Scotland has a well-deserved reputation in creating films around social justice, but we also need to show we can punch above our weight in creating thrilling entertainment.”
Dark Sense was shot around Edinburgh in 2017 and features notable talent such as Shane O’Meara of Waterloo Road, Jim Sturgeon of Casualty, James Robinson the young Wallace from Braveheart, as well as guest stars Siobhan Redmond, Gordon Kennedy and Sanjeev Kohli.
The film has met with worldwide critical success winning awards in the US including Best International Film at the SENE film festival. It recently was selected by FRIGHTFEST, the UK’s largest genre BAFTA festival which described the film as, “A knockout, cleverly plotted, heart-pounding thriller.”
Based on Amazon bestseller First and Only by Peter Flannery, Dark Sense tells the story of Simon, a young man with unique abilities. He can see into the future and is connected to a serial killer who he knows he must stop, even if it means being his final victim.
Dark Sense is available from Amazon Prime
The DVD features a 33 minute behind the scenes ‘making of’ documentary that covers the crowdfunding, development and shooting of the film. The DVD also features the directors and authors commentary.
