Lawton, Nevada’s once successful writer—now small-town pariah—William Langston, fights for his life as the final victim of a serial killer. Over the course of one day, William is captured and tortured. The pain launches him into the past where he is forced to confront his unresolved trauma of 'love lost' and the actions that led him into this trap.
Assured, compelling, and ultimately disconcerting Shot in the Dark is a beautifully crafted deconstruction that broods with a calm intelligence rarely found in such a popular subgenre.
It’s remorseless, unyielding and will likely linger with you long after it finishes: the kind of watch that – for better or worse – requires a long shower afterwards, with a dirtiness that drills down into the marrow of your bones, and chills your very soul.
