Summary:

From the twisted kids, to Losey's constant flashbacks to his girl, to Deming's psycho personality, I just didn't get it. It just got more laughable in its sickness as the thing went on, and ultimately the ending was such a letdown, that you just have to go, again, WTF?!

Straight Into Darkness (2004)If you've ever wondered what would happen if you crossed a war movie with Tales From the Crypt, and added a little bit of LSD-induced weirdness... you'd probably wind up with Straight Into Darkness.

Two Allied prisoners manage to escape the MPs escorting them, and wind up on a sick and twisted journey into hell that, while ultimately isn't that interesting, is a visual nightmare that will leave you sitting there going, "WTF was that?!"

As Losey (Ryan Francis) and Deming (Scott MacDonald) battle each other's problems, they come across various disturbances in the balance of humanity, such as the cannibal priest and the group of bodies who have seemingly hung themselves in the forest.

The real fun doesn't begin until they come across a seemingly abandoned building.  But it really isn't.  The inhanbitants are a band of disfigured and "special needs" children who have been turned into a capable fighting unit by their keepers, led by "Deacon" (veteran David Warner.)

And who would show up, but an entire column of German infantry, led by a tank.  See, they're after the loot stashed in the basement of the building, and as such, are hesitant to just blow the thing up.

Well, the "last stand" happens, and all hell breaks loose.  All I can say is WTF were they thinking?  Because there isn't much about Straight Into Darkness that makes any sense whatsoever.  I really failed to see the point.

From the twisted kids, to Losey's constant flashbacks to his girl, to Deming's psycho personality, I just didn't get it.  It just got more laughable in its sickness as the thing went on, and ultimately the ending was such a letdown, that you just have to go, again, WTF?!

Straight Into Darkness
might make for a good late night B-flick, but steer clear otherwise!  I almost wish I had!
