As local cop, Donald Marium (James Badge Dale), races to stop Vernon’s vengeful rampage, Core is forced on a perilous odyssey into the heart of darkness.
Hold the Dark was directed by Jeremy Saulnier from a script by Macon Blair. The producers are Russell Ackerman, John Schoenfelder, Eva Maria Daniels, Neil Kopp, and Anish Savjani.
