A young man who has spent his life as a member of an ultraconservative Christian cult, loses his parents and becomes disoriented, wandering into a forest and meeting a coffin transporter, a caring woman, her mute boyfriend, and his mother.
After the death of his strictly religious parents, forlorn young Darkly gets lost in the woods. A truck driver, Jude, rescues the exhausted man, who has only a bible for comfort. He brings him to the house of Callie and Clay, two lovers who live in the forest. While Clay is away in the forest, beautiful Callie nurses Darkly back to health, and he develops an obsession with her that is totally contrary to his upbringing - a sexual obsession. When Clay returns home and Darkly sees the two lovers kiss, it is too much for him. Every night he hears them making love. Darkly's descent into madness has begun... An extremely dramatical and exciting ending!Written by

Honestly, this movie gave me the creeps. The intense psychological symbolism going on in it really makes for a total mind-candy movie. It takes you on a journey through the deconstruction of a young man's mind through conflict with his religious beliefs and outright lies. You once again get a new facet of Brendan Fraser's acting ability during his portrayal of the tortured Darkly Noon. The movie is absolutely chilling. I recommend it, if you're into movies that make you think. It may be hard to get, Blockbuster had to order it for me.
