Trivia

Though the entire film was shot in Croco, Italy, for some reason said events presented to have taken place in Turkey! In the beginning of the movie, a single greeting in Turkish took place between the hitchhiker and the driver. That was about it. See more »

Goofs

At an hour and ten minutes in, when three people are arguing with the water bottle, you can see a crew member to the far left of the screen. It looks like he's holding a camera but it moves fast. See more »

Loved it as just a genre film, as well as...
30 November 2015 | by jswindter01See all my reviews

...a fresh take on the now, very stale genre of horror!

I know there seem to be many who do not at all believe the "gimmick" that's used in the movie, "Murder in the Dark". I specifically use the word "gimmick" due to that being the most common of the negative descriptors used by critics in speaking of what this set of writers/directors bravely, dared to use in making this little horror flick.

I. personally, DO believe that this crew/cast actually did try this daring feat of something totally new, and unheard of in the making of ANY movie, much less a genre piece of horror. I absolutely believe that these actors/actresses were led in blind and thereby forced to rely on their own gut feelings, and intuition, on how to proceed forward throughout the entire filming of this movie..and for me, the end result was great!

It was completely grounded in reality, which allows the viewer to feel the unease, and even somewhat "feel" the fear that naturally arises from the unknown..and IMO, these actors/actresses were every bit in the thick of the thick of "the unknown"..the who?..the what?..the when, and how?..each of the scenes were going to play out?.. as well as deciphering where each of the scenes were going to fit.. what they would mean..and from there what it would "equal" in compiling and piecing together the proverbial puzzle of the "big picture", as a whole, in what would form the cohesive plot of the movie.

I dug it, and I very much appreciate the different route this crew/cast dared to take in making this movie.
