Trivia

When the film started production, Andrew Luster was still at large after having been convicted in absentia of 86 counts of rape, poisoning and drug possession and sentenced to 124 years in prison. The film was supposed to end with a picture of the real Andrew Luster, asking the audience to notify authorities if they should see him. On June 20, 2003 Andrew Luster was captured in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, while the film was still shooting. The ending was re-written to incorporate Luster's capture. See more »

A bit disturbing, but quite good
12 August 2003 | by ( Northglenn CO. USA) – See all my reviews

"A Date with Darkness" is not entirely what you would call, easy to watch. Some of the scenes in this movie are very explicit.

However, it's not like those explicit scenes would at all ruin the story.

I would give this movie a 10/10
