The first official teaser trailer for Brandon Slagle's paranormal psychological thriller The Black Dahlia Haunting landed in our inbox, and we have it right here along with info on the film's world premiere at Scare-A-Con to be held next month in Syracuse, New York.
The Black Dahlia Haunting stars Devanny Pinn (#HoldYourBreath), Britt Griffith (Syfy's "Ghost Hunters"), Noah Dahl (Bad Teacher), Alexis Iacono (The Penny Dreadful Picture Show), Cleve Hall (Syfy's "Monster Man"), Jessica Cameron (Silent Night), Sarah Nicklin (Beg), Daniel Murawka (The Locals), and Brandon Slagle (Patient Zero), who also directed the film.
A young woman, Holly (Pinn), flies from New York City to Los Angeles to follow up on the murders of her abusive father and stepmother by her blind-since-childhood younger brother, Tyler (Dahl). She soon encounters the psychiatrist assigned to treat Tyler, Dr. Owen (Griffith), who seems to have a special connection to a spirit Tyler claims speaks to him, Elizabeth Short - known in lore as The Black Dahlia (Iacono).
Consumed by vengeance, the spirit of the Dahlia has been playing mind games with individuals who have experienced great pain in their lives, from Tyler to Malcolm (Slagle), a man who can speak to the dead by touching objects that were of great importance to them, and now to Holly...
