Video: The trailer for Dark Signal piqued our interest for two reasons: One, it’s produced by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones). And two, we can’t resist horror movies that are set in and/or around radio stations. The Fog! Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2! Pontypool! And now… Dark Signal.

Directed by Edward Evers-Swindell, who co-wrote with Antony Jones, Dark Signal‘s only official plot description is: “The spirit of a murdered girl returns with a message for the staff of a local radio station.” That doesn’t even mention the serial killer, the creepy-yet-beautiful isolated setting, the haunted house or what appears to be an on-air séance — all of which offer further intrigue, especially since there’s nobody immediately recognisable among the cast. Dark Signal is in US theatres June 2, and on VOD and iTunes in the US starting June 6. An Australian release has not yet been announced.
