Storyline

John Whitmore wakes one morning to find himself in the midst of a real-life nightmare. His wife, Anne, disappeared from their bed during the night and a recorded ransom message now remains in her place. This mysterious recording instructs Whitmore to contact a man named David, who will escort John and his life savings to a cabin deep within the woods, where he will be reunited with his wife. He does as directed, but not before calling a life-long friend for help. David forces the men into a rusted RV and the three hit the road. John attempts to calm himself by piecing together the events of the previous evening, but instead he finds himself questioning David's motivation and, eventually, the entire situation. It becomes obvious he will need to take a stand to save his wife...and, quite possibly, himself. Told through fragments of the past that shatter the present, "Dusk" explores the darkest recesses of the mind through a night of chaos, deceit and paranoia. Written by Anonymous

Horrorr You Don't See Coming And Can't Forget
2 June 2016 | by sbendisSee all my reviews

MICHAEL MANEY'S feature film DUSK, by MONARCH HOME ENTERTAINMENT, is a horror movie on a truly frightening level, walking the line, in words of the real Man In Black, between terror and horror – a challenge DUSK pulls off with a nightmarish twist. An official selection at the Cincinnati Film Festival, Cleveland International Film Festival, and several others, DUSK challenges the current bland crop of clichéd serial killers, inclement weather-bound sharks, and European hostels.

True horror is that knock on the door in the dark of the night. It's that tire that blows out miles from nowhere; or the call from the doctor needing to see you in person. It's terror that's uncontrollable, unknowable, and unexpected. MICHAEL MANEY'S DUSK grasps all this in 90 minutes that leaves you horrified on the edge of your seat – and terrified that it will happen to you.

John Whitmore – finely portrayed by JOHN McGLOTHLIN – wakes up one perfectly normal morning, in his perfectly normal bed, to find his wife (played by THE WALKING DEAD'S highly underrated Alisha played by JULIANA HARKAVY) suddenly kidnapped – with only an eerie recorded message and a creepy stranger, David (FORD D'APRIX) – his only way to see his wife again… Don't let the mysterious kidnapping fool you into thinking this is a variety mainstream revenge flick. Other reviewers will agree that with each chilling twist in DUSK, any more of a detailed synopsis would ruin the experience, and cheat the viewer of director MICHAEL MANEY'S mastery of it. DUSK is told in flash-backs and flash-forwards, perfectly paced, deepening each terrifying riddle with an even more chilling answer.

More of an homage to Hitchcock and old school Polanski, writer/director MICHAEL MANEY'S film works on a psychological level, with a crafty, well-written script that leaves you to decide which is more horrifying – ghosts or the ghosts of memories. With a movie like DUSK, echoes of chilling madness haunt you long after the last credit.

MONARCH HOME ENTERTAINMENT has a visceral little gem in their hands with DUSK, the type of midnight movie you don't see in movie theaters anymore. DUSK reveals the true definition of terror in its last scene, a chilling truth that's as frightening as is its opening.
