Movie Info

DARLING follows a lonely young woman who moves into an old, mysterious Manhattan mansion. Hired as caretaker, it's not long before she discovers the estate's haunted reputation and troubling past - stories that slowly transform into a backdrop for her twisted and violent descent into madness... Mickey Keating's new feature is a chilling black‐and‐white psychological horror story beautifully shot in New York City. Edited like a nightmare and scored like a hallucination, DARLING stars Lauren Ashley Carter (POD, JUG FACE) with supporting performances by Brian Morvant, Sean Young, Larry Fessenden, John Speredakos, and Helen Rogers. Produced by Fessenden and Jenn Wexler for Glass Eye Pix and Sean Fowler for Alexander Groupe; Keating and Carter are also producers.

Critic Reviews for Darling

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (8)

More likely to dull by repetitive creep than memorably rattle the senses.

April 7, 2016 | Full Review…

The director's Polanski preoccupation borders on imitation. Still, Keating's flattery is sincere, and so is his wish to stylishly freak you silly.

April 1, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Keating ... crafts his own stylish take on the psycho and haunting genres in between winks to the classics.

March 31, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Using the simplest of settings - and familiar genre devices - Mickey Keating's horror outing "Darling" manages to conjure an effectively unsettling miasma.

March 31, 2016 | Full Review…

Thanks to excellent work from Carter, creepy and big-eyed innocent as required and strong throughout the 75-minute film, Darling holds its own as a satisfyingly deliberate-moving thriller.

March 31, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4

Keating, and his leading lady Carter, are horror masters in the making.
