Storyline

In 1984, a hidden crime became a deep, dark secret between friends. Five years later, on Halloween night 1989, the secret got out. Here is the actual footage of the events of October 31 and November 1, 1989, when the group returned to the scene of the crime and came face to face with their wicked past. IN THE DARK is a stylish horror film, which tells the "true-life" story of Lizzy Duncan, a young, institutionalized mental patient who was unmercifully picked-on by a group of delinquent teenagers brought into the institution on a work study program. On Halloween day 1984, a tragic event left Lizzy severely disfigured and another female inmate dead. This film captures the actual footage from five years later, when the juvenile's return to the burned-out institution as a Halloween prank. IN THE DARK is a chilling tale that sets itself apart from other horror films by offering an intricate and thought-provoking plot, and telling its story by employing creative and compelling camera ...

Very good, refreshing change from normal horror movies.
5 October 2006 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

Wow, this is not your average cheap horror flick. If the documentary like presentation isn't legit they've done a great job selling it. There's some of the minimalist horror vibe that's recently been sneaking onto US shores from Japan via bootleg DVDs and poorly made American rip-off hack jobs, but the atmosphere is unique enough to not really even fit in there.

Some people might compare it to Blair Witch but they'd be doing it a disservice. When I wasn't bored stiff watching Blair Witch I was laughing my ass off. This movie scared the spit out of me.

I don't want to say too much for fear of giving something away, but if you like scary movies in general you've got to see this film. Lizzy Duncan is the new yardstick for how I will measure horror movie "villians". Look the hell out Jason and friends, you've got company.

If you are any kind of fan of the genre, this is a must see.
