Storyline

When a massive power outage plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, a disparate group of individuals find themselves alone. The entire city's population has vanished into thin air, leaving behind heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows. Soon the daylight begins to disappear completely, and as the survivors gather in an abandoned tavern, they realize the darkness is out to get them, and only their rapidly diminishing light sources can keep them safe.

Trivia

A scene with Paul being attacked by several people after a car that he's driving breaks down was shot, but ultimately cut from the film. See more »

Goofs

Paul explains that the darkness had taken him when his visual light went out, and then found himself reappeared back to life again with a head injury after his visual light reactivated on again. That goes against the whole plot of the movie, and the characteristics of the darkness of once it takes you you're gone, there is no coming back. See more »

what?
22 January 2011 | by lefevre-tjSee all my reviews

While parts of the movie peaked my interest, overall, it was very disappointing. A vague plot, poor script, weak effects and actors trying their best to make it work. Too bad they failed. A movie with this premise has great potential, it can lead the viewer down a path and let the audience intellectually fill in the blanks. In order for that to occur, the movie itself must provide the plot points, the material that that allows, and draws the viewer to want to connect the dots and create, so to speak, their own movie within a movie. I just gave up, and so, apparently, did the filmmakers. I won't gave away anything, because there really isn't anything to tell.
