A DARK SONG

Di­rected by Liam Gavin. Star­ring Steve Oram, Cather­ine Walker

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - | SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Joseph (Oram), is an ex­pe­ri­enced oc­cultist with all the charm of a wounded loan shark. Hav­ing re­ceived a gob­s­mack­ing amount of money from griev­ing Sophia (Walker), the bick­er­ing pair re­treat to an iso­lated house in ru­ral Wales to per­form the Abramelin. This novel, nifty Ir­ish hor­ror – the first and best of a small mur­der of indige­nous genre pic­tures com­ing our way in 2017 – plays in­trigu­ing, con­trary games with ex­pec­ta­tion. Odd in a good way. 16 cert, lim re­lease, 99 min
