Dark Country (2009)
The film concerns a psychiatrist treating a patient that they encounter in a Wet House that is able to predict tragic events. As the film unfolds, the doctor starts to lose grip on their sanity and is haunted by something sinister within the establishment.
The film is set in an institute where drug addicts beyond recovery go to die, and is loosely based on Charles Dickens's ghost story The Signal-Man, Bloody Disgusting reports.
Dickens's book tells the story of a railway worker who is haunted by a spectre that informs him of train crashes before they happen.
Jack Reher provided a screenplay for the movie, which is described as being tonally similar to the likes of Jacob's Ladder, Poltergeist and Secret Window.
Jane, best known for starring in The Punisher and Stephen King adaptation The Mist, made his directorial debut on animated feature Jonni Nitro in 2000 and helmed Dark Country in 2009.
The Wet House is yet to be given a release date.

Well it appears Jane has been given the go ahead to move forward with a full-length feature based on that idea, although with a now shortened title of A Magnificent Death. Not only will he make his second directorial effort (after cult indie thriller Dark Country), but Jane will also star.
Joining Jane so far are a couple of acting greats in three time Oscar-nominee Nick Nolte and Oscar-winner Jeremy Irons. No word yet on the roles they are set to play but
“At the end of the road… the nightmare truly begins. In 2007, actor/filmmaker Thomas Jane went off to New Mexico to film his noir/suspense film, Dark Country, a twisted, psycho-noir about a couple forced to deal with a dead body en route from Vegas. The result was a mind bending, idiosyncratic, EC Comic-style ride into the noirish landscape of damnation. In an effort to create a new experience, Jane had the artist adapt the original short story by Tab Murphy that inspired the film. Thomas Ott’s adaptation is presented in his signature ‘silent’ format,
