Storyline

When a massive power outage plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, a disparate group of individuals find themselves alone. The entire city's population has vanished into thin air, leaving behind heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows. Soon the daylight begins to disappear completely, and as the survivors gather in an abandoned tavern, they realize the darkness is out to get them, and only their rapidly diminishing light sources can keep them safe.

Do you like unfinished movies? Then this one's for you!
20 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was at the box office? Yep. It opened on 1 screen. The next week it was in 6 theaters across the U.S. Then down to 5, then down to 4 and then gone completely after only 28 days of release. I don't know the story behind why it only opened on 1 screen but I sure as hell would love to hear it. Why does a studio do that? Tax write-off? Poor test screenings? Riots at the theater because it was so bad? The latter can't be the case because it doesn't start off bad.... funny enough, it starts out excellent....

We meet Paul (Leguizamo) at an AMC movie theater (nice plug, btw) hitting on the concession clerk (Jordan Trovillion). We meet Luke (Christensen) at his female colleague's (Erin Nicole) house. We meet Rosemary (Newton) at the clinic. These three don't know each other yet, but they're going to be thrust together by circumstance. Everyone in their immediate area for blocks and blocks disappear (nothing but clothes left in their place -- rapture?). If that's not mystery enough for you, then maybe this is: daylight seems to be gradually disappearing... every day gets shorter and shorter... until finally, there's nothing but darkness. And whatever that is in the darkness itself.

What a way to start a movie. Don't worry, there's no spoilers here... all of this happens in the first 5 minutes, people. It instantly got my attention (hook, line and sinker) and made my mind to start unraveling the mystery of what the hell is going on here. Why didn't these people get taken? Why is it pitch black outside when it is 11 o'clock in the morning? What is that evil force that seems to be living in the dark? Why does the light push the dark away? Why won't any of their electronics work? How are these three people going to get out of this situation and survive? Unfortunately, that's all this movie has -- questions. Not a single damn question is answered either. Not one! It's like the screenwriter wrote the first half of the script and then took a vacation somewhere nice and sunny and when he returned home, he seen how many messages he got from his agent asking him where the hell his new script is and quickly wrote the second half because he forgot all about it! I haven't been this mad at a movie since I saw "Signs" (since water kills them, they invade Earth, which is 75% water, yeah, that's extremely logical) or "Castaway" (hey, Chuck Nolan, you've just survived a deserted island, what are you going to do now....hey, where ya going.... at least tell us where you're headed!!).

The acting between the three leads are just okay, to boot. No stand alone performances in the film and you would think that being stuck in this situation, a good director would be able to get some real raw emotions from his cast. The movie does have some fine creepy moments and the "beings" in the dark even gave me some chills sometimes... but it doesn't mean anything if nothing is answered! I was surprised that Ashton Kutcher didn't come out on screen after the end credits to inform me that I had just been punk'd...because I certainly fell for it (hook, line, STINKER).
