Directed by and starring Thomas Jane (THE PUNISHER), this is a TWILIGHT ZONE-esque film noir. A guy named Dick wakes up in a cheap motel, married the night before to a hot blonde named Gina (Laura German of HOSTEL II) who is a virtual stranger. He met her in Vegas. In the voice-over narration he says he loves her. They are driving to Sedona, Arizona and get lost on the way. Then, she's hot and so starts molesting an ice cube, which really distracts him from driving. In fact, he turns off his lights as she gets off in the seat beside him--and then when it's over and he turns them back on just in time to see a guy standing in the middle of the road. They hit the guy and then go to see if he's alive.
Although his face is nearly ripped off he is still breathing. Their cell phones don't work so they load him in the back seat with the intention of taking him to a hospital. Then, he wakes up and starts saying some weird stuff. In fact, he knows things about both Dick and Gina that he should not know. Things escalate and Dick and the stranger get in a fight and the stranger loses, brained with a rock. They bury the body and resume their journey, though the newlywed's relationship is sorely tarnished.
This movie was original shot in 3-D and you can see how the production design and many of the shots exist specifically for his, such as bird flying away from a window, a hand sticking out of the ground, the way in which their car is shot. DARK COUNTRY is a well-crafted, moody thriller that echoes David Lynch.
