Nothing to do with our Cilla – this Blind Date is an altogether tougher proposition, as you’d expect from exploitation ace Nico Mastorakis (In The Cold of the Night, Island of Death). After losing his sight, Ad Exec Jon Ratcliff (Joseph Bottoms, The Black Hole) is fitted with an experimental device that partially returns his vision. Only…
Although he can’t ‘see’ very much, one night he catches a glimpse of a notorious killer. Is it enough to find the psycho? And can he do it before the murderer catches up with him? One of Mastorakis’ best (and bloodiest) films, the cast includes Kirsty Alley (Cheers), Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: The Next Generation) and Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey). 88 Films are sure you’ll have a lorra, lorra fun with this lost classic from the slasher golden age.
Opening with a brutal double axe murder by an unknown murderer, no one can say Darkroom doesn’t start as it means to go on – a tough, gory thriller that’s equal parts nail-biting mystery and gruesome slasher. Who is this mad killer, that photographs their victims as they die (horribly, of course) – and what drives them to kill?
Darkroom was produced by Nico Mastorakis, creator of the infamously depraved video nasty Island of Death – and more than lives up to its predecessor. 88 Films are proud to present this lost classic of 80s splatter.
