Last week, it was announced that Julia Stiles and Scott Speedman would star in Lluis Quilez's "Out of the Dark," a supernatural thriller presented by Participant Media, the company known for producing films with a political bent, such as "An Inconvenient Truth" "Food, Inc," and "Lincoln." 

While Participant's Jonathan King said, “Given Participant’s mission to illuminate important issues, this is not your average ghost story," the company wasn't clear as to what political position the film would be taking on. But there is some evidence to suggest that the family at the center of the film may be haunted by corporate or ecological corruption. 

In the press release, King eluded to the fact that there were other issues involved in the film. "You can be sure that there’s a bigger reason why this takes place at this particular house in the Colombian jungle and to this particular family," he said. 

Written by Alex & David Pastor (the virus horror pic "Carriers") and originally titled "Aguas Rojas," literally "red waters," the term has been used to describe red waste waters that have polluted many Latin American waterways.
