Storyline

'When a group of young people camping in the ruins of a medieval Turkish town play a party game called 'Murder in the Dark', they soon discover that someone is taking the game too far...' Produced in an experimental shooting style, this murder-mystery features a cast of actors who were not allowed to see the script. The actors' choices interactively changed the shape of the story. They had to use clues to solve the mystery laid out before them by the filmmakers. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Though the entire film was shot in Croco, Italy, for some reason said events presented to have taken place in Turkey! In the beginning of the movie, a single greeting in Turkish took place between the hitchhiker and the driver. That was about it. See more »

Intriguing murder mystery themed horror film!
24 October 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A bunch of friends are heading to a ruin in the country, of which where they'll camp out for their vacation. They're adventure soon, however, turns for the absolute worse as they're friends, one by one get picked off by someone amongst themselves. The one thing they now must do is find out who it can be, and stop them. I personally think the plot was intriguing for what it was. You get the original, classic feelings from past murder mystery film plots, only this time in a more interesting, more unique setting. I found it extremely interesting how the film took a turn toward having the murder mystery horror plot take place in a secluded, abandoned environment. You have all these characters in one desolate environment where nobody really ever goes, around an area where barely anyone even lives. I found the given characters to be a bit stale. At Least how they were executed. Don't get me wrong, they weren't bad, but the film dose little, to no character development, and we don't exactly get to know anything important of these characters. At points they seemed just to be there, to be there. They're acting, actually, was quite good. I felt as if these actors, even with not much depth, played out their characters well, and delivered they're sequences of fright, terror, and suspense in a solid matter. The twist this film delivers was a hard hit. It felt as if we didn't exactly see it coming, at the same time, when it hits, we get that feeling to where we could of told who it was, when the twist finally unleashed, if that makes sense. The cinematography in this movie, I feel as if I should review a bit. It wasn't the best, in all honesty, there were parts the camera zoomed in way too much, other parts where shots seemed blurred, others where you only see half the characters faces, and some where it's being shaken around like some found footage film. I can understand this film wasn't too high of budget, but I felt as if the problem could have easily been avoided. Lastly, the gore in this movie I felt was great for what we got. We get some pretty good gore throughout the film, mostly around the end.

In the end, this wasn't the strongest "8 films to die for" installment, but does it make this film bad? Absolutely not. Despite its lack of character depth, slight clichés, and not so great cinematography, this film was enjoyable. The acting was great, and even though the characters aren't expressed with depth, they hold grip, and come out pretty decently. The gore in the film was pretty solid for what it was, giving us some scenes with great gore. The plot was classic - like, delivering a solid, and actually quite suspenseful murder mystery themed horror film; The suspense in the film was solid, white- knuckled tension. In conclusion, the film lacked a bit, but with it's pro's defeating it's cons, it turned itself into a pretty solid little horror flick. I'd honestly recommend it, even though this may not be Afterdarks best installment for 2015.
