BLACK DAYS takes place on the gritty streets of Chicago where Trent, a recently released ex-con, struggles with alcohol and loneliness. Before going to jail Trent tries to help Angie escape prostitution by giving her the money to get out, but money in the end just wasn't enough. Now Trent is out on parole and Angie's friend Melanie wants to escape the same life, not only for her, but for her son as well. Seduced by the temptations of the flesh and the echoing guilt of not doing more for Angie, Trent tries to do the right thing and get Melanie out. But when Trent tries to buy Melanie from her pimp things get violent and promptly spins out of control. Before he knows it Trent is being hunted by Eddie, an old enemy seeking revenge, and his previous employer tries to have him killed. Slowly but surely we see why Trent served hard time. Only Trent's the last person in the world you would want to mess with.Written by
Auditions took place in the dirty Chicago apartment that would later be used as Trent's place in the film. Despite the cramped accommodations and rundown apartment a large number of actors came out to audition. See more »
During the bar scene with Pope and Trent a boom mic dips into the scene for a brief few seconds. The scene, which is eight pages of dialog, was shot all the way through two times from two different angels because their wasn't enough time to do anything else. The sound mixer was made to hold the boom for such a long period of time he wasn't able to keep the mike out of the shot. See more »
This is my kind of flick! The movie is dark and focuses on the lonely but extremely tough ex-con Trent. This is the kinda guy you don't wanna mess with. He's quiet, the kinda quiet you used to see in the old Clint Eastwood spagehtti westerns, where the less he said the more of a badass you knew he was. And Trent definitely comes across as that kinda guy. When he speaks it's cause he has something worth saying. And boy when he does get back cause it's a whopper! He helps this women even though she doesn't really deserve it, but you know this guy just needs to help her. And in the end, when it all comes to a thrilling climax, I knew what was going to happen, and then I didn't. Just like that. I was totally into this movie. It has a lot of great moments and I was really drawn in. It's an independent film that's totally worth seeing. It surprised me. Big time!!!!
