Rating: 4/5 -- Reminiscient of Keith Gordon's fantastic A Midnight Clear mixed with a healthy dose of Rod Serlingism, Straight Into Darkness is a dark and stark little tale. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- While it's clear that this movie is trying to making a general anti-war statement, the story elements don't add up to a big picture about anything in particular. Full Review

Product Description:

Jeff Burr, known for his slasher sequels (PUMPKINHEAD 2, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3), ventures into new terrain with STRAIGHT INTO DARKNESS, a genre-bending and macabre tale set during WWII. Two Allied soldiers, the philosophical Losey (Ryan Francis) and psychotic Deming (Scott McDonald), are en route to a court marshal for a heinous war crime when an exploding mine allows them to escape into the desolate no-man's-land. Here they encounter a cannibal priest and eventually stumble on a bizarre fortress of amputees and freaks who have been trained to protect themselves from the outside world. This surreal and twisted film, half art-house and half exploitation, shows glimpses of Terrance Malick's visual poetry and relies heavily on the mad genius of Tod Browning's FREAKS. After two decades of toiling in the horror-film factory, Jeff Burr has finally been able to express his dark and ingenious vision.
