Julien Seri hasn’t directed a lot of films, but when he directs, he knows how to attract audiences. He leapt onto the scene with parkour action adventures Yamakasi and The Great Challenge before heading into darker, grittier territory with Scorpion and in 2015 with Night Fare.
His latest, Darkness Falls, seems to be a continuation of that very tone he’s become akin to, which is fine by all accounts. Vertical Entertainment is leaning on a VOD and Digital/multi-platform June 12 release for the pic which stars Shawn Ashmore, Gary Cole, Richard Harmon, Daniella Alonso, Sonya Walger, Vahina Giocante, and Lin Shaye.
