The film was supposed to end with a picture of the real Andrew Luster, asking the audience to notify authorities if they should see him. On June 20, 2003 Andrew Luster was captured in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, while the film was still shooting. The ending was re-written to incorporate Luster's capture. See more »

A bit disturbing, but quite good
12 August 2003 | by Daria_1988See all my reviews

"A Date with Darkness" is not entirely what you would call, easy to watch. Some of the scenes in this movie are very explicit.

However, it's not like those explicit scenes would at all ruin the story.

I would give this movie a 10/10
