After its hit festival run, Dark Sky Films is proud to announce the theatrical release of Ted Geoghegan's MOHAWK on March 2, with a simultaneous VOD and HD Digital release. MOHAWK is a no-holds-barred action-thriller marking the second team-up between writer-director Ted Geoghegan, producer Travis Stevens, cinematographer Karim Hussain and Dark Sky Films after their award-winning 2015 horror hit, We Are Still Here. 

After one of her tribe sets an American camp ablaze, a young Mohawk warrior finds herself pursued by a contingent of military renegades set on revenge. Fleeing deep into the woods they call home, Oak and Calvin, along with their British companion Joshua, must now fight back against the bloodthirsty Colonel Holt and his soldiers - using every resource both real and supernatural that the winding forest can offer.

Praised as "gripping" and "a wild ride" by Indiewire, and "realistic and very personal" by The Hollywood Reporter, MOHAWK unfolds over the course of one bloody day during The War of 1812. Birth. Movies. Death. Says, "[Mohawk] does a fine job of reminding us that sometimes the truest horror is that of our own history." and RogerEbert.com called the film "A searing genre hybrid."

MOHAWK stars Kaniehtiio Horn (Hemlock Grove), Justin Rain (Fear the Walking Dead), and Eamon Farren (Twin Peaks: The Return) along with Ezra Buzzington(Justified, The Middle), and including Ian Colletti ("Arseface" from AMC's Preacher) and Jonathan Huber, WWE Superstar Luke Harper making his big screen debut.
