It's not paranoia.
2 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

IN THE DARK is a film about reality that is treated as paranoia. Sadie is treated in the same way that the real life victims of mind control experiments are treated. The assumption is that anyone who tries to tell the truth about such a subject must be paranoid.

Everyone knows that such things cannot happen in "free countries," but as the film suggests, anything can be done in a free country as long as it is done in secret and as long as no one believes that such things can be done in a free country.

IN THE DARK deserves the highest rating for its courage in tackling a topic that is being kept secret from the people by the general media. Mind control is neither fiction nor paranoia. It is reality.

Anyone who wants to know the truth on this subject can find it by doing a Google search on "mind control." This brings up 20.8 million references. The reality of mind control experiments in the U.S. is beyond question, but it is also beyond the knowledge of the public.

Sadie is a victim of the belief that horrors such as mind control experiments can only happen in the movies. Paranoia is the cover-up for the reality which the perpetrators want to conceal and which the people do not want to believe.

This is a movie about reality that purports to be fiction. It is considered acceptable as fiction but not as reality. This is why you find truth about this subject in a movie and not in the newspapers.

See this film and compare it with real life experiences that can easily be found by a simple search. Then thank the producers for their start in telling truth that urgently needs to be told.

The film does not begin to tell the full story of the real mind control experiments, and it avoids some apparent truth, but it performs a major service in raising a subject about which we all need to learn a great deal more.
