Beneath the Darkness Details


A small-town mortician finds his darkest secret revealed in director [[Performer~P267283~Martin Guigui~martinguigui]]'s edge-of-your-seat thriller. Everyone in Smithville, Texas, knows the name Ely Vaughn ([[Performer~P58161~Dennis Quaid~dennisquaid]]). A former star quarterback on the high-school football team, amiable Ely went on to become the town mortician. Ely's always got a quick smile ready as he cheers on the hometown team, but two years after his wife's untimely death, he's grown increasingly reclusive. He lives in a sprawling mansion that also doubles as the local funeral home, and rumor has it that the house is haunted. For curious teens Travis ([[Performer~P622028~Tony Oller~tonyoller]]), Brian ([[Performer~P517653~Stephen Lunsford~stephenlunsford]]), Abby ([[Performer~P490385~Aimee Teegarden~aimeeteegarden]]), and Danny ([[Performer~P363158~Devon Werkheiser~devonwerkheiser]]), the temptation to find out for themselves if the stories are true prove too powerful to resist. Gazing into Ely's windows, the teens witness the silhouettes of the grieving widower and an unidentified woman dancing together, and decide to get a closer look. But it may be the last mistake they ever make, because beneath Ely's friendly facade dwells a murderous sociopath capable of unspeakable evil. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
