Storyline

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 murderer from New Orleans, Louisiana. But this trip is no ordinary vacation as Jim's rancid sexual impulses and weakening grip on reality deteriorate into a ... Written by VEG

Goofs

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 »

Dark , Eerie and Brilliant!
5 March 2014 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Dark Tourist took me on a ride I did not expect. The performances were so real I forgot I watching a movie. Frank John Hughes has an uncanny ability to present deep insight while structuring a story that allows you in... but not out.

Michael Cudlitz in the new Charlie Bronson, a silent, powerful, talent who can think on screen without brooding. God only know what's in store for this miracle of expression, but I would bet big, big, things!

The music by Austin Wintory is so profound, it found ways to creep into my being without drawing attention. What an underscore!

Evocative, Provocative, Sensational!

See this move!

It will be an experience you're are not likely to forget!
