BLACK DAYS takes place on the gritty streets of Chicago where Trent, a recently released ex-con, struggles with alcohol and loneliness. Before going to jail Trent tries to help Angie escape prostitution by giving her the money to get out, but money in the end just wasn't enough. Now Trent is out on parole and Angie's friend Melanie wants to escape the same life, not only for her, but for her son as well. Seduced by the temptations of the flesh and the echoing guilt of not doing more for Angie, Trent tries to do the right thing and get Melanie out. But when Trent tries to buy Melanie from her pimp things get violent and promptly spins out of control. Before he knows it Trent is being hunted by Eddie, an old enemy seeking revenge, and his previous employer tries to have him killed. Slowly but surely we see why Trent served hard time. Only Trent's the last person in the world you would want to mess with. Written by

At the end of the film you can see the make-up of the welt on Trent's forehead starting to separate from his skin. The make-up artist had a prior commitment and was unable to stick around to keep the effect looking good. Half way through filming the welt fell off causing some of the close-ups to look bad. To cover up the problem editing and a great deal of color correction was done to make it less noticeable. See more »

I think it's just one of those things where people want to be the first to discover the next big thing in films. And I'm happy to say I think I've found it. Black Days is a great film noir dark action drama about an ex-con who agrees to help a prostitute get away from her pimp. It's amazing the quality in this film for such a small amount of money. I didn't know how much the movie was made for when I first saw it and quite honestly I never would have guessed it was that low. In fact I still don't believe it. The thing that draws me to the film is it's violent content and dark undertones. People should see this movie just for the characters Pope and Sophie. Totally awesome. People have already started comparing the director Michael Urnkis to such directors as Michael Mann. He also wrote the film. This movie, how it was made, and it's great cult like feel is going to be a big hit once it hits festivals.
