Plot Summary

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 violent despair that will ultimately unlock an unspeakable secret festering within him, bringing The Dark Tourist to it's brutal and shocking finale...

Edit
Trivia The character name "Carl Marznap" is a reference to real life serial killer/arsonist Carl Panzram. See more »
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 »
