A psychological-thriller in the haunting tradition of films like Taxi Driver and Monster, The Grief Tourist takes us into the chilling labyrinth of a man's dark hobby and his even darker mind. JIM TAHANA doesn't leave much of an impression when he passes you by. But look closer and you'll sense his hunger - the deep hunger of an insatiable American soul - always scanning to devour something - anything that might fill the searing, unexplained void within him. Jim obsesses over the hobby that has been part of his DNA since he was a young boy: grief tourism - the act of traveling with the intent to visit places of tragedy or disaster. Every year his week-long vacations from work are spent going to grief tourist locations in the lives of different serial killers he is fascinated with. This years obsession is Carl Marznap, a mass murder from New Orleans, Louisiana.

In the first scene showing Jim driving the red Pontiac G8 rental car in California, there is a very clear reflection of a film production camera vehicle: a mini-Van with the rear passenger sliding door open and a camera filming Michael Cudlitz driving. The reflection of the camera vehicle can be seen twice, both before and after the film cuts to driving through the tunnel. See more »

Going to dark places taking literally. Our main protagonist is not someone that will win a popularity contest. But that is not the kind of movie you should expect anyway. This is exactly what it says: Dark! And the main actor is great depicting the downfalls and the character trades in general.
Which also makes this is a very uneasy view. This won't go down easy with people who can't stomach a few events. You might see a few things coming, but there are still some surprises that are going even deeper into the tunnel. Very well shot this was a favorite at the Frightfest in London where it was playing. Not for everyone, but if you can dig it (you'll know a few minutes in), you'll have a hell of a ride
