SYNOPSIS

Musim panas adalah saat untuk bersantai, istirahat, liburan, dan hidup bebas. Tetapi, Daniel Austin, seorang pemuda berusia 17 tahun, tidak bisa menikmatinya karena ulahnya menguntit teman sekelas yang ditaksirnya, Mona Wilson, di dunia maya membuatnya menjadi tahanan rumah selama masa musim panas. Jadi, ia harus hidup tanpa telepon seluler, tanpa internet, tidak boleh keluar rumah, dan tentu saja, tidak boleh mengkontak Mona. Kemudian, ibu tunggalnya pun harus pergi untuk kunjungan bisnis, sehingga Daniel harus berada di rumah sendirian. Daniel mengakali koneksi internet nirkabel tetangganya dan berpikir bahwa ia bisa main internet tanpa ketahuan, lalu menggunakan waktunya untuk mengamati teman-temannya—termasuk Mona…. Tapi, yang tidak disangka oleh Daniel adalah bahwa Mona juga mengecek pergerakannya. Dan apa yang dilakukan sang gadis setelahnya membuat Daniel terguncang. Lalu, hal-hal aneh mulai terjadi. Daniel menerima paket misterius, mendengar suara-suara ganjil, melihat barang-barang bergerak dengan sendirinya, dan merasakan kehadiran sosok aneh di rumahnya….

 

From Paul Solet, director of the acclaimed hit Grace, comes DARK SUMMER, a suspense thriller combining the supernatural terror of classic horrors THE SHINING and POLTERGEIST, with the tension and modern cool of DISTURBIA. Summer is a time to relax, unwind, take a vacation, and be free. But 17 year old Daniel Austin gets none of that because his obsessive online stalking of his classmate and crush, Mona Wilson, got him put on house arrest for the whole summer. So, no cell phone, no Internet, no leaving the property, and especially no Mona. Then Daniel’s single mother has to go on a long business trip, and Daniel has the place to himself. Daniel figures out a way to piggyback onto his neighbors’ wireless signal and believing he’s surfing off the grid, uses his time to check in on his friends – and Mona… But what Daniel didn’t expect is for Mona to check up on him. And what she does next shakes him to his very core. And then things start to happen. Daniel receives mysterious packages in the mail, hears phantom noises, sees inanimate objects move, and feels a strange presence in the house…

BLOGGERS REVIEW

DANIEL IRAWAN (Daniel Dokter)

Never too special as a small indie claustrophobic horror, Dark Summer at least had good technical work in building atmospheres. Rating: ★★★
