Central Park Dark is a feature length horror/thriller film starring Tom Sizemore. It's about a one night stand that turns into a never ending nightmare. An alcoholic, married doctor has a one-night stand with an unstable woman who jumps out of his window, then begins to torment him, though it's unclear if she is still alive or not. This film is currently in post-production. Written and directed by Cybil Lake.

Central Park is particularly magical and beautiful at night. Everyone on set got a rush from creating something unique with all that magic and beauty.

About Me

Resume

Cybil Lake

Writer, director, and actor living in NYC

Born in Virginia, I grew up in Rhode Island. I attended NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, BA in Film and TV. I've written eight feature film scripts. My first feature, Jane the Stalker 2001-2005, was a long, no-budget experience in which I acted, wrote, directed, edited. I attended Wendy Ward Acting Studio, 2006-2010 and Nicky Flacks Studio Acting Technique, 2009-2011.

I produced my first online series, The Cybil Lake Show and was selected by NBC for a new filmmaker's program, The Screening Room. In 2010, I wrote The Gun Virgins, a feature film about a woman who begins an underground gang in NYC. I began shooting this with unpaid crew and cast. Although I had many people excited about the web series, ultimately, I didn't raise the budget. I wrote a book, Your Soul's Missing Manual, 2011-2013, which is part memoir, part spiritual handbook.
