'Stranger Things' actor Natalie Dyer and Kyra Sedgwick star in sci-fi thriller 'After Darkness'
Dyer is back in yet another sci-fi thriller, but this time instead of Hawkins she will find herself trapped inside a house with disastrous consequences
Natalie Dyer, best known for her role as Nancy Wheeler, Mike's elder sister in Netflix's original series 'Stranger Things', is set to act alongside golden-globe winning actor Kyra Sedgwick in the upcoming sci-fi thriller 'After Darkness'. This futuristic thriller also stars John Patrick Amedori ('Dear White People'), Valorie Curry ('The Tick') and Tim Daly ('Madam Secretary'). Directed by Batan Silva (TV’s 'Mayans M.C.'), the 'After Darkness' DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.
Natalia Dyer and Kyra Sedgwick act in the sci-fi thriller about a family’s fight to survive a solar disaster. As skies darken and hopes grow dim, the Beatys try to stay sane in a lavish home with every possible comfort…except for sunshine.
Raymond (Tim Daly) plans to have his family transported to a secure underground bunker. But as he makes a gruesome discovery, the greatest threat to the Beatys’ survival may be near — or inside — their home. Written by Fernando Diaz Barroso, the movie will also focus on how the family sets out to remove the "long-lasting divides among each other".

Unlike most sci-fi thrillers, 'After Darkness' looks into the aftermath of the solar collapse in a single-setting, which in itself is quite a difficult feat to achieve. This kind of setting actually accumulates all the attention within the house and a lesser number of characters, portraying the worldly affair from a subjective point of view.
This means that we can expect an overlapping of sub-plots which is often a common feature in single-setting plays such as, 'The Guilty', where hubris, tragedy, and denouement take place inside a single room. While 'Stranger Things' season three is not returning until the summer of 2019, 'After Darkness' is a movie that Dyer's fans should look out for.
'After Darkness' will be available on DVD, Digital, and on demand on January 15 from Lionsgate. Watch the trailer for the movie here:
