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

Poorly made and can never recover
28 February 2017 | by jtindahouseSee all my reviews

'Dusk' is the kind of film that relies almost entirely on its ending to be considered a good film. It knows that it isn't made with the highest levels of quality, but it thinks that if its ending is good enough it might get away with that fact. There are after all a lot of examples of this in film history.

Unfortunately for 'Dusk' there are two problems in their case. Firstly, the film is very amateurishly made. The acting is quite terrible at times, the writing is bizarre in spots and structured painfully on occasion (mostly in the first 15 minutes) and the direction is bland and uncreative. So all this makes for not a very fun watch. However, because of the story line we know that something more is going on, something hopefully that will blow us away and make it all worth it. This is the only thing that keeps us from switching off the film altogether.

Then comes the second problem, the ending. While admittedly not bad, and while it does clear up a lot of points in the script that originally just seemed like very poor writing, it is unfortunately not enough to save 'Dusk'. You could say it saves it to an extent, but not to the levels I believe the film makers were looking for. The only people I could really recommend this to are absolute lovers of twists in films. Other than that you aren't going to get a whole lot out of this one.
