One of coolest films I have seen in a long time
14 October 2003 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

Since my first kid I am the video store junkie from hell and I look for films I have never seen all the time. The film I found called "Dark Summer" I have no idea why this movie was not in the theaters. (Hollywood BS I'll bet, good films never get seen-GO INDIES!!!!)

I saw from the cover Connie Nielsen and Mia Kirschner (Exotica-another great film) so I took a chance.

The lead character played by this Jean Hughes Anglade was absolutely yummy for a French guy and the film was filled with all these cool actors like Keith David, Frank Langella and Anne Archer playing the most amazing character i have ever seen and probably the best of career.

I won't give away any of the plot but this film has it all, great acting, gorgeous photography, murder, mayhem, perverts, drug addicts/alcoholics and a really kick ass cast.

Support independent films and if you want to see a great movie, "Dark Summer" is one of the great ones that no one knows about out there!
