APS Films has released the first trailer from director Joe Raffa’s thriller Dark Harbor that tells the story of Olivia, a young mother on the verge of childbirth who finds her future threatened by a hidden darkness from her family’s past.

For his latest feature, Raffa and executive producer Edwin P. Stevens enlisted the talents of Jessica Sipos (“Slasher”, “Chesapeake Shores”) and Joel McHale (“Community”, Ted) as the expectant parents. They are joined onscreen by Meagen Fay (“Grace and Frankie”, “Agent Carter”) and Brian Gallagher (“Outsiders”) as Olivia’s distant parents, as well as Xander Berkeley (“The Walking Dead”, Terminator 2) Reiko Aylesworth (“24”, “Scorpion”), Connor Trineer (“Star Trek: Enterprise”, “Stargate: Atlantis”), Sterling Hurst, and Nickolas Wolf.

Raffa shared, “The film tests the limits we are willing to go for forgiveness, redemption, and the truth. I hope Dark Harbor forces us to answer the questions we are otherwise afraid to ask ourselves. Can we let go of resentment and forgive a loved one who has betrayed us? How can we fix the suffering a loved one has caused? And, along this haunting and tense journey, you’ll find yourself gripping your armrest and holding your breath.”

Here’s the official synopsis:

With the birth of her first child just days away, Olivia must return to her childhood home island off the coast of Maine, seemingly on the edge of the world, to face her narcissistic mother and attend her father’s funeral. Not long after, she uncovers a dark family secret that undoes the foundations of her life. The deeper Olivia searches for answers, the more life-threatening the situation becomes, putting herself and her unborn child in danger.

Here’s the trailer!

Due to me being familiar with Joel McHale because of comedic content, it will be interesting to see how he does in a thriller.

The plans for Dark Harbor include a world premiere at the Catalina Film Festival in their Thriller Thursday lineup and continuing on the festival circuit.
