Marcos Efrom talks “AND SOON THE DARKNESS” remake for

What do you get when you combine two hot chicks, the sizzling backdrop of Argentina and a Latin bad boy named Chucho? The feature-film debut of commercial director Marcos Efron: the remake of 1970’s Robert Fuest-directed chiller AND SOON THE DARKNESS, coming from Anchor Bay Entertainment.

“The project came to me through my agents,” Efron tells Fango. “The producers had been working on trying to get a new version off the ground for a number of years, and had reached a point where they needed a director who could whip Jennifer Derwingson’s screenplay into shape and attract talent. That script was great, and it captured a lot of the atmosphere I wanted to showcase. I spent a month in 2008 in Argentina getting a feel for the people and the culture, which I felt was important to making the film feel real.”

The film, which we last covered with a photo here, stars ZOMBIELAND’s Amber Heard and Odette Yustman from CLOVERFIELD and THE UNBORN as friends Stephanie and Ellie, who are on a bike-riding tour of the foothills of Argentina when they wind up in the small town of Alemana. A fight ensues between the two friends when they miss their bus, and Ellie subsequently disappears. Stephanie must find her before darkness falls and avoid crossing paths with local thug Chucho (Michel Noher), whom Ellie has developed a crush on.

“Chucho is one dangerous dude,” Efron says, “but he’s good-looking and has a cool Latin vibe about him that sets people at ease, especially women. He’s definitely a villain in the film, but there are others, and by the last act of the film, Amber’s character has to figure out who she can really trust. I think it will come as a surprise to audiences as well.”

Efron notes that this complexity helps set his film apart from the 1970 version. “The main difference between the update and the original is a greater emphasis on character and more twists to the plot. When you get actors as great as Amber Heard, Odette Yustman, Karl Urban and Adrianna Barraza, you need to have something for them to hang their hats on. I loved the simplicity and atmosphere of the first movie, but I felt it was a little too straightforward for today’s audiences.” In addition, while the Fuest film was set in France, “We chose to set ours in the vast, rural remoteness of Argentina because I didn’t feel it was believable, in 2010, that anyone would be cut off from help in France. Europe seemed too ‘safe’ and not exotic enough.”

The region provided real-life benefits as well. “Shooting in Argentina was great, because they have extraordinary locations and a base of very skilled craftsmen and crewpeople,” says Efron, who describes his time helming AND SOON THE DARKNESS as both exciting and challenging, and notes that every day was a learning experience. “The challenges were what you would expect: far from home, a different working style than in the U.S. and language. But e of that got in our way. We showed up every day and shot until they pulled the plug on us!” he laughs.

While AND SOON THE DARKNESS isn’t a gore-filled, blood-and-guts horror film, the director assures that there are definitely a number of jump-out-of-your seat moments. “It’s definitely more of an atmospheric thriller about strangers in a strange land,” he says. “DELIVERANCE is a good comparison, as are those creepy movies that get under your skin, like KNIFE IN THE WATER and the original Dutch version of THE VANISHING.” While Efron enjoys playing on moviegoers’ squeamishness, he says it’s the deeper notions of horror that get under his skin the most. “I believe fans who are interested in suspense and smart storytelling, and that sinking feeling of ‘Oh crap, this could happen to me’ will really dig this movie.”

Anchor Bay is currently planning a theatrical release in February 2011, with a DVD to follow; Studio Canal, which co-produced and co-financed the film, is handling foreign distribution. Asked what’s next for him, Efron replies, “Quite a lot. I’ve just finished a new script that will surely appeal to FANGORIA fans, something I hope to shoot next year.” See AND SOON THE DARKNESS’ Facebook page.
