BENEATH THE DARKNESS is a teen thriller in the style of DISTURBIA, with high school kids pitted against a psychotic villain in a community where adults refuse to see one of their own is a serial killer.
The villain (Dennis Quaid) is a well-respected mortician in a town where he was once a legendary high school football star. But among the kids he is legendary for a more sinister reason - rumours that his house is haunted. The truth is more evil and much more dangerous â€" the town leader murdered his wife and her lover when he caught them having an affair, and now has secretly set up house with his wifeâ€™s embalmed corpse.
The local hero is a flesh-and-blood monster who buries his victims alive, a sociopath who befriends adults and police while openly flaunting his murderous intentions to the teens. He will kill anyone who threatens to expose him or his now-perfect marriage.
