We’ve been given an exclusive behind the scenes clip from director Marcos Efron’s And Soon the Darkness. A remake of the 1970 British thriller/horror film of the same name, And Soon the Darkness stars Amber Heard and Odette Yustman as two friends who run into some problems (like potential kidnapping/serial killing problems) while on an Argentinian getaway. Karl Urban also stars as an American ex-pat who is purportedly helping Heard find a missing Yustman.
Hit the jump to check out the clip which features commentary from Efron as he describes some of the pros and cons of shooting the film around the city of Salta, Argentina. And Soon the Darkness received a very limited theatrical release in the U.S. last week and will be available on Blu-ray/DVD on December 28th. Finally, in case you missed it, you can check out our interview with Marcos Efron here.

Here’s the synopsis:
Stephanie (Amber Heard) and Ellie’s (Odette Yustman) vacation to an exotic village in Argentina is a perfect ‘girl’s getaway’ to bask in the sun, shop and flirt with the handsome locals. After a long night of bar-hopping, the girls get into an argument, and Stephanie heads out alone in the morning to cool off. But when she returns, Ellie has disappeared. Finding signs of a struggle, Stephanie fears the worst, and turns to the police for help. But the local authorities have their hands full already – with a string of unsolved kidnappings targeting young female tourists. Skeptical of the sheriff’s competency, she enlists help from Michael (Karl Urban), an American ex-pat staying at their hotel. Together they go on a frantic search for Ellie, but Stephanie soon realizes that trusting his seemingly good intentions may drag her farther from the truth. With danger mounting, and time running out, Stephanie must find her friend before darkness falls.
