Bertino’s movie The Dark and The Wicked premiered at the Fantasia International Film Festival in 2020 and was met with rave reviews, notching 91% certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

In The Dark and The Wicked, two siblings, who are plagued by waking nightmares, suspect that something evil is taking over their family at an isolated farmhouse. The pic was released by RLJE Films and starred Marin Ireland and Michael Abbott Jr.
