If you are a fan of chilling psychological thrillers, then Netflix original Hold The Dark will have you glued to your seat (or bed!) when it drops onto the streaming site this September.

The movie is based on the novel of the same name by William Giraldi, and follows wolf expert Russell Core (Westworld star Jeffrey Wright) who is investigating a series of missing children cases, and it looks gripping.

Russell travels to a remote village in the depths of Alaska, where distraught villagers believe that the town's kids have all been kidnapped by wild wolves in the snowy forests.

The Netflix film also stars Big Little Lies' Alexander Skarsgård and Mad Max actress Riley Keough as married couple Vernon and Medora Sloane, whose young son has gone missing and Russell is trying to find.

Medora, the boy's mum, tells the retired naturalist in the film's trailer that her husband is away at war, and needs 'something to show him' when he returns back from Iraq.

But as he tries to search for the wolves that took the young boy, Russell soon finds himself caught up in a harrowing mystery.


The upcoming thriller has been directed by acclaimed filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier, meaning expectations are high for Hold The Dark.

Speaking about creating the film-adaptation of the novel, the director told Indiewire: "The way I make movies, there's a certain amount of immediacy and simplicity and kinetic visual attraction to the stories, and that's often hard to immediately see when you're doing literary adaptations.

"With Hold The Dark I read it and it was all right there. It read very cinematically, it was atmospheric. ... It spoke to me like all the films I end up doing, on an intuitive, impulsive level."

The movie will be released on the subscription service on Friday, 28th September ready to binge watch as the nights draw in.
