Product Description

Joaquin, an unassuming fisherman, is forced to confront his homosexuality when his sex-starved wife returns from her overseas job eager to get pregnant. His young and impulsive lover, Waldo flees to Manila in disgust.
After a month of hesitation, Joaquin leaves his wife to follow Waldo. His search takes him on a seamy yet colorful trip through Manila's gay underbelly. He discovers Waldo's dangerous flirtation with Rufo, a bisexual rogue cop who holds the clue to Waldo's disappearance. Rufo lures Joaquin into his home and introduces him to his submissive wife, Beng.
A sadist who beats up Beng regularly, Rufo turns Joaquin into a prisoner and sex slave -- like he did to Waldo. When Joaquin is finally reunited with Waldo, he discovers that Rufo is about to sell them like fish to an international sex trafficking ring, along with his personal harem of male and female captives. With Beng's help, the two lovers plot their escape.

This is a very dark movie with no happy ending. It is about two youths, Joaquin (Polo Ravales) who is 24 and has tutored Waldo (Joseph Bitangol) who is 19. They fall in love. Joaquin's wife returns and wants a baby. Joaquin feels obligated but his heart isn't in it. Waldo leaves for Manila and Joaquin follows to find him. This is where the darkness begins to fall. Neither understands the workings of the underbelly of either the gay world or the sex slave trade. There are two baddies. Mr. So (Wilson Go) runs a teen-age slave trade in both boys and girls. The youths are promised jobs overseas and once taken are shipped out and sold "like fish" to the highest bidders. The other baddie is Rufo (Emilo Garcia) who is a cop, as procurer for Mr. So and a sadistic son-of-a-bitch who loves to beat up on his wife on any pretext. He also loves to beat up on the young boys he procures and holds prisoners as he does with the girls until they're shipped off. I must tell you that there are two rapes scenes. One with Waldo and one with Joaguin. They are well done if a rape scene can ever be seen as well done. I would add that when a gun is pointed at your head or shoved in your mouth, it is rape. As I have said there is no good ending and one is left with questions. I would recommend this film because it doesn't sugar-coat life and discusses some things that aren't usually shown. The story line is good as are the actors who are believable as well as good looking. The photography and editing are also good and smooth. I give it 5 stars

Really a marvelous film. .. Don't be fooled by the cheesy cover. . . Felt a the full range of emotions throughout the entire picture and was scary at times.. . Be warned a couple scenes are hard to watch and you feel a pit in your stomach watching this film.. .. One of the best LGBT movies I have seen in a while: not for its depiction of gay life but for a gritty, raw reality of what it might be like halfway around the world and what one does for true love.

As a foreign film, it was decent. The acting could have been better, but the story is easy to understand. A young man who just graduated high school is high strung in his behavior. He is gay and was tutored by his neighbor, whose wife was away for a couple years due to a job. The gay young man is emotionally attached to his neighbor who turns out to be bisexual and has obligations to his wife. When the wife returns, the young man gets jealous and runs away leaving behind his grandmother. Concerned, the neighbor must decide if he should stay with his wife or leave her behind in search of this kid who ran away to a crowded city, Manila. If he searchers for him, does it mean he loves this young man and will he be able to find him? The movie does follow the adventures of the young man to the city with strange situations such as male prostitution and human trafficking. Will this boy return home to his small fishing village safely? Watch to find out.

I've watched several other movies along this same vein. The boys in it are always Macho Dancers, that is, they dance on stage for men with the hopes of being picked by one. this is a movie about a fisherman from a small village who is married but falls in love with another man. When the other man confronts him to tell his wife and he won't Waldo leaves Manilla for Thailand. Joaquin, tells his wife and goes in search of Waldo. He tracks him to a destination where there are no happy endings. Bordering on Romeo and Juliet, the lovers are finally reunited and then all hell breaks loose.

Meh. Sappy. Gays and women are victimized by a self-hate closet cop. it is just way overacted and too much tears and weepings. I endured it to the end so that I can honestly review it. it is poorly directed and even more poorly filmed, dark and more dark. One nice thing is the go-go boys but even they can't save this wretched film.

Story line is something that does happen and it is sad that more is not done to stop children in the sex trade. Overall the movie projects it's point in a nice way, which is important in putting a message through. It just happens to be a gay movie, but it were not, it would have been just as good.

I agree with everything the other one star reviewer said. But will add creepy and gross. I will not shy away from disturbing (to some degree) but not when its done this badly. Out In the Dark was quite disturbing but a great film.

Sadistic Philippino piece that weakly operates under the topic of human trafficing. Over-indulgently long scenes, poor plot, and tiresome flashbacks. How anyone rated this as five stars is beyond me.
