Shot In the Dark (2022)

Directed by: Keene McRae

Starring: Keene McRae , Kristoffer McMillan and Christine Donlon

Synopsis: Two years ago, William Langston made a mistake that would affect the course of his life. Now, with a killer loose in his hometown and his circle of friends falling away one at a time, William faces his greatest fears as well as his own mortality.

A Shot In The Dark is an edge of your seat physiological thriller that builds up the tension through a tactful way of relying on great story-telling and solid performances from the lead actors. 

The movie doesn’t rely on a slasher and a bodycount to make this movie memorable. 

Keene McRae who directs and plays a supporting role does so much and more with this low budget thriller. 

Kristoffer McMillan leads the movie in his first feature and proves he has the abilities to carry a feature length movie along with the ability to deliver a believable performance. When we first meet McMillians character who is am author, he is about to take his own life, when he doesn’t he is abducted and taken to a room and tortured. 

The gore and violence, when it occurs, is quite brutal and looks realistic, with the strong performances of McMillian it’s quite hard not to believe you’re not watching him going through this trauma. 

Shot In The Dark features amazing performances and the writing and the cinematography is that of a movie with five times the budget. Nothing about this movie looks cheap. 

The end is a shocker and will have viewers shouting at their TV’s. This is a movie you can’t afford to talk or look at the phone through as each element that happens in the movie relates to the storyline, missing any bits could overall ruin the viewing experience. 

This is a must watch, especially for fans of the psychological horror genre!

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
