Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


One of our absolute favorites out of last year’s festival circuit, the must-see “Lovely, Dark, and Deep” is finally receiving a wide release.

Lennon, a new back-country ranger, travels alone through the dangerous wilderness, hoping to uncover the origins of a tragedy that has haunted her since she was a child.

XYZ’s upcoming female-director horror film Lovely, Dark, and Deep lands in cinemas and on VOD on February 22, 2024. It’s the latest from the incredible writer-direct Teresa Sutherland (writer of The Wind and Midnight Mass).

It’s a truly remarkable film that we reviewed out of the Fantasia Film Festival:

How good is LOVELY, DARK, AND DEEP? The great acting and setting alone make it one of the best of the year. The cinematography is also fantastic, but the story truly sets it apart. It is not very often you see a movie that is so good that it actually makes you jealous.

Everything about this film is sumptuous and investing.

Did you ever see a jaw-dropping poster for a film only to be disappointed that the film itself couldn’t live up to the enticing promise of its promotional art? Of course, you have. However, I assure you that the gorgeous art (see below) for Lovely, Dark, and Deep perfectly encapsulates the haunting beauty of the film.

Lovely, Dark, and Deep

Lovely, Dark, and Deep is a psychological horror that centers on Lennon (Georgina Campbell, BAFTA winner for Murdered by My Boyfriend and breakout star of Barbarian), who seizes the opportunity to assume the coveted role of a back-country ranger at a remote outpost.

While adapting to her solitary existence in the wilderness, she becomes aware of a lurking, sinister presence. Driven by the need for answers, Lennon embarks on a journey through the ominous terrain, seeking to unveil the long-standing mystery that has haunted her since childhood.

The cast also features Nick Blood (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Wai Ching Ho (Hustlers).

Josh Waller (Mandy, Color Out of Space) produced the film under Woodhead Creative. Stefanie Coimbra served as an executive producer for House of Quest Films alongside Molly C. Quinn, Matthew M. Welty, and Elan Gale representing QWGmire.

Check out the stunning trailer below, and make sure you add this film to your must-watch list.
