Dark Country stars Thomas Jane, who is also handling directing duties, his first time behind the camera since 2000’s Jonni Nitro. It also stars Lauren German, who is a tall drink of red wine, and Ron Perlman, who is more like a stout. It’s about a couple who decide to take a road trip to Vegas for their honeymoon, but things go awry when they run over a man standing in the middle of the road. They pick him up, put him in the car, and unsurprisingly, he awakens.

It’s a fairly generic premise, but for some reason, I like the cut of Dark Country’s jib. It helps that, for no real reason, I kind of dig Thomas Jane, but the Frank Miller-esque horror/noir stylism is certainly compelling. The trailer’s voice-over narrator, however, is not.
