press for Coming Home In The Dark

"COMING HOME IN THE DARK is one of those unpredictable, brutal films that stay in your mind long after the end credits."
- Film School Rejects
"A one and a half-hour gut-punch, COMING HOME IN THE DARK is bleak, tense, and often unshakable. … it sticks with you; haunts you."
