His wife, Anne, disappeared from their bed during the night and a recorded ransom message now remains in her place. This mysterious recording instructs Whitmore to contact a man named David, who will escort John and his life savings to a cabin deep within the woods, where he will be reunited with his wife. He does as directed, but not before calling a life-long friend for help. David forces the men into a rusted RV and the three hit the road. John attempts to calm himself by piecing together the events of the previous evening, but instead he finds himself questioning David’s motivation and, eventually, the entire situation. It becomes obvious he will need to take a stand to save his wife…and, quite possibly, himself. Told through fragments of the past that shatter the present, “Dusk” explores the darkest recesses of the mind through a night of chaos, deceit and paranoia.
Plot: John Whitmore wakes to find his wife, Anne, has disappeared from their bed overnight and a recorded ransom message now remains in her place.

Poorly made and can never recover
‘Dusk’ is the kind of film that relies almost entirely on its ending to be considered a good film. It knows that it isn’t made with the highest levels of quality, but it thinks that if its ending is good enough it might get away with that fact. There are after all a lot of examples of this in film history.
Unfortunately for ‘Dusk’ there are two problems in their case. Firstly, the film is very amateurishly made. The acting is quite terrible at times, the writing is bizarre in spots and structured painfully on occasion (mostly in the first 15 minutes) and the direction is bland and uncreative. So all this makes for not a very fun watch. However, because of the story line we know that something more is going on, something hopefully that will blow us away and make it all worth it. This is the only thing that keeps us from switching off the film altogether.
Then comes the second problem, the ending. While admittedly not bad, and while it does clear up a lot of points in the script that originally just seemed like very poor writing, it is unfortunately not enough to save ‘Dusk’. You could say it saves it to an extent, but not to the levels I believe the film makers were looking for. The only people I could really recommend this to are absolute lovers of twists in films. Other than that you aren’t going to get a whole lot out of this one.
500th verse, same as the first
To reiterate the warning, this review definitely contains spoilers. Don’t read it if you want any surprises left at all. Although I must admit that even NOT reading this review will not guarantee you any surprises.
Meh. DUSK doesn’t have all that much going for it. The acting is competent but not particularly inspired, though truthfully there isn’t much going on in the movie in terms of thematic meat that would encourage dramatic soaring.
If you’re older than about 12 then you should be familiar with the “everybody’s really dead” plot line. Usually, in most variations of this plot line and indeed in this one, some violent event happens near the beginning of the movie and the primary actor or actors have actually transitioned to being dead only they don’t know it. Most of the story is devoted to tracing their progression to the realization that they have died. The big punchline at the end is we, the audience, “discover” that everybody has been dead all along with some big denouement accompanied with self-realization and a moral graduation (or failure) and so on.
Innumerable television series have featured episodes primarily consisting of this basic plot (even LOST was ultimately a variation on this theme at the end), whole movies like this one, etc. It has sometimes been executed really well as with THE OTHERS.
If you’re a young person and new to the plot idea that it’s okay. If it’s the 800th iteration that you’ve seen of the same idea, not so much. Since the characters are supposed to make some sort of big emotional transition, much of what transpires throughout the movie consists of a lot of emotional biting and scratching which I suppose is intended to facilitate their inner evolution. I get enough of that in real life that I mostly found it just tiresome.
Maybe you would feel different.
