DARK AUGUST

Martin Goldman, USA, 1976, Arrow Films, Horror

"Fascinates with its manifest dread of the very land and people its brutish urban protagonist aches to live among."
— Stephen R. Bissette, Temple Of Schlock

Fleeing his fresh divorce and big city headaches, a swingin’ New Yorker relocates to Vermont and immediately mows down the granddaughter of the local embittered elderly warlock. Psychic assaults and ‘70s occult hysteria ensue as rural sorcery is unleashed. This atmospheric nightmare-maker was the first independent feature from filmmaker Martin Goldman, who’d previously directed the controversial, underseen THE LEGEND OF N****R CHARLEY for Paramount Pictures. His miles-long leap from blaxploitation to black magic is a genuinely cortex-crippling experience.
