Thrilling story and gorgeous styling
28 April 2012 | by (arnhem, netherlands) – See all my reviews

After enjoying television series Hung with Thomas Jane I decided to give this movie a try and it outdid my expectations. I loved it very much! Dark Country is quite different from most current horror movies because it's given a 1950's comic styling as well as film noir elements. The car scenes and landscapes are so beautiful, just like a painting. If you want to enjoy this, you have to open up for the imaginative intention of director, writer and actor Thomas Jane. The movie leans on American archetypes that Alfred Hitchcock also used, like the Good Citizen (gone lost) the Sad Blond, The Cop and even the All American Car and honors American film history and film heroes like Cary Grant and James Stewart.
