Storyline

After the death of his strictly religious parents, forlorn young Darkly gets lost in the woods. A truck driver, Jude, rescues the exhausted man, who has only a bible for comfort. He brings him to the house of Callie and Clay, two lovers who live in the forest. While Clay is away in the forest, beautiful Callie nurses Darkly back to health, and he develops an obsession with her that is totally contrary to his upbringing - a sexual obsession. When Clay returns home and Darkly sees the two lovers kiss, it is too much for him. Every night he hears them making love. Darkly's descent into madness has begun... An extremely dramatical and exciting ending! Written by Frank Wallner <wallnerf@informatik.tu-muenchen.de>

I was transfixed !
3 November 2004 | by (Fort Hood, Texas) – See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this movie years ago and only recently was I reminded of how great this movie was. Brenden Frasier and Ashley Judd were totally unknown to me at the time so I can't really compare any of their more recent works to this movie, but I can tell you that this movie has stayed with me for more than 6 or 7 years. I can't understand why anyone wouldn't be drawn in to the madness that is Darkly. His innocence alone would pull you in and beg for your compassion. I don't care what anyone else tells you, if you truly love great writing and movies that get to you where no other ones can, then you have to see The Passion of Darkly Noon. It's a dark thriller with a fabulous one-sided love story tragedy. Maybe I'm just biased for emotionally disturbing thrillers with twisted story lines that are not so far fetched that you can't relate on some levels.
