You likely already know Pollyanna McIntosh – even if you don’t think you do. She played Jadis in seasons 7, 8 and 9 of The Walking Dead – and has a literal ton of other film credits it to her name but – her latest project, titled Darlin’ – which she wrote, directs and stars in – looks like it is going to be of particular interest to us horror fans.
From the press release:
Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin’ (Lauryn Canny) is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop (Bryan Batt, AMC’s Mad Men) and his obedient nuns where she is to be tamed into a “good girl.” However, Darlin’ holds a secret darker than the “sins” she is threatened with, and she is not traveling alone. The Woman (Pollyanna McIntosh, The Walking Dead), equally fierce and feral, who raised her is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.
DARLIN’ sees standout star Pollyanna McIntosh both in front of and behind the camera, expertly commanding an all-consuming feast for the senses and sensibility in equal measure.
Coming to us from Dark Sky Films – it will get a limited theatrical run – as well as a VOD on July 12th.
