Editorial Reviews

In his feature film directorial debut, THOMAS JANE (HBO's "Hung", The Punisher) stars in this suspenseful horror thriller. Also starring LAUREN GERMAN (Hostel: Part II) and RON PERLMAN (Hellboy II: The Golden Army). Two honeymooners rescue a mysterious car crash survivor in the Las Vegas desert. But their decision to save the man becomes increasingly regrettable when he turns on them, forcing the newlyweds to do the unthinkable. In a blur of paranormal chaos, the couple must take drastic measures to cover up their actions from the local police, ultimately leading each character to an inescapable fate.

Format: DVD
Some movies smack you square in the face, presenting everything up front and knocking the wind out of you with the scares they have to offer. Others offer a slow boil, brewing away, giving you information one piece at a time. The clues are there but for some reason they never seem to show themselves clearly until the end. DARK COUNTRY is one such film.

Thomas Jane (who also directed) is Richard, a man we know little about other than that he just met the love of his life in Vegas named Gina (Lauren German) and the pair have united in holy matrimony. Waking the next morning, they prepare to move on down the road by driving at night to avoid the heat of the desert.
In true film noir fashion, Richard narrates the film and gives his perspective now and then as to what is going on. The night time drive is one filled with discovery as the pair find out more about each other, something most people do prior to rather than after the wedding. During their discussion, the heat rises not only from the desert but from a tease Gina offers Richard that results in some erotic yet not non-nude goings on.

As they drive, Richard comments about the sky being so clear in the desert you can drive without your lights on. But when they click them back on the first thing they see is a man stumbling across the road in front of them. They swerve, barely avoiding him but enough to end up off the road. Going back to see if he is okay, they find him alive but banged up beyond recognition.

Further up the road they see his car overturned and realize he's been injured severely, most of his face a bloody pulp. They gather him up, place him in the back seat and head out to find help.

But as with all good episodes of the classic TV series TWILIGHT ZONE, everything is not what it seems.

Format: DVD
Two newlyweds from Vegas are making a night drive through the desert. They come across a bloody, disfigured man who's been in a car wreck. And everything goes downhill from there...

They don't make them like this anymore. DARK COUNTRY is low-budget noir/horror at its finest, a crass, violent, remorseless film whose script (kudus to Tab Murphy) owes quite a bit to Mickey Spillane's hard-hitting noir novels and Richard Matheson's tripping "Twilight Zone" episodes. It is dark and twisted, somewhat of a character study revolving around a couple (Thomas Jane and Lauren German, who manage to carry damn near the whole movie) who don't really know each other, and begin to find out things they aren't comfortable with. Jane's directing is solid; he knows what he wants--a low budget movie that LOOKS low budget--and manages to pull it off with only a few minor hitches (it slows down a bit near the end, becomes a bit too convoluted to follow closely). However, it looks cool and feels trippy. Throw in a few possible supernatural twists, an appearance by Ron Perlman (whose character isn't necessary at all, but it's still nice to see his ugly mug), and an ending Rod Serling would be proud of, and you have one hell of a film.

A direct to DVD release that is better than some movies I have seen with a $50 million dollar budget.

The other review hit it dead on. If you like the Twilight Zone, then you'll love this.

Don't expect a fancy product - what you get is just good story telling with plenty of tension.

I really enjoyed this movie. It was like a nightmare. The strange atmosphere really set in properly to make everything work. Its a dark movie, that seems so surreal at times, that you have to wonder whether its really all just a nightmare, were the protagonist will wake up at the end of the movie. I guess I also enjoyed it so much because its so vastly different from just about all the recent movies I've seen. I mean, its not at all a horror movie, and its not really a thriller either, but yet it manages to keep you in suspense virtually the entire time.
Definitely worth seeing if your tired of all the generic horror stuff out there.

A great, thoroughly entertaining movie with a compact, riveting story and fierce scenescapes. Too bad we couldn't see it in the theaters. I heard it was shot in 3-D and intended to be shown as such, but went straight to DVD instead. Hopefully home theater catches up, and we can see this as it was intended to be shown, sooner than later.

I purchased Dark country starring thomas jane-who was in a punisher movie.( and like somebody said here before thomas janes punisher was the best punisher movie of all of the punisher movies thus far)but back to the movie dark country...I thought the movie dark country was a good, atmospheric, twilight zone like movie.if you like the twilight zone you will probably like this one too. it was about about two honeymooners(thomas jane & lauren german)who rescue a mysterious car crash survivor in the middle of the las vegas desert but their decision to save the man becomes regrettable when he turns on them and crazy things happen. I thought the plot,the atmospheric scenes,cool car,hotel,bar,rest room,etc where all well done with a surprise ending to boot! some people here did not like this movie but I sure did and I recommend it,especially if your a fan of rod serlings twilight zone like I am.
