When London couple Louise and Claire book a canal boat on the vast, wild, Caledonian Canal - their trip of a lifetime through the Scottish Highlands soon descends into a hellish ordeal.
“Deliverance” meets “Rosemary’s Baby” – The Dark Mile is a psychological thriller built around a strong central relationship between two different and sympathetic characters. As they delve further into the wild and are confronted with layer upon layer of jeopardy from a variety of sources, neither our heroes nor the audience can tell which threat will ultimately prove decisive. With many twists along the way - we are kept guessing until the end.
Combining character driven storytelling with more conventional genre set pieces against the powerfully cinematic Highland backdrop - we hope to create a poignant, exciting and visually stunning film that will prove broadly popular with a large audience.
