Popping up on the festival circuit last year and earning some strong advance word, the no-budget thriller "Daylight" has lain dormant so long. Thankfully, distributor Cinema Purgatorio recognized its potential and will roll it out to theaters this summer.

Favorably compared to the work of Michael Haneke, this psychological thriller follows couple Daniel (Aidan Redmond) and Irene (the very pregnant Alexandra Meierhans) as they pick up a seemingly-innocent hitchhiker (Michael Godere) on their way to a wedding. However there's something a bit more sinister to him, and after he threatens his drivers to pick up his cohort (Ivan Martin), the couple get mixed up in a kidnapping and have to fight for their survival. But it's not all screaming and melodrama as the film unfolds into something a bit more subtle and tense, with director David Barker infusing quiet eroticism and benevolence on the proceedings.

We're happy to unveil an exclusive clip from the film, followed by another clip and the full trailer for the film that was recently unveiled at Apple. New York will get the film first on July 15th, and horror fans looking for something a little different better be there or, simply, be square.



Here's a humorous, tongue-in-cheek promo clip the cast of "Daylight" made with the help of their friends Sam Rockwell and Marisa Tomei.
