After The Dark
If you've ever taken a philosophy class in high-school or university, then John Huddles' new film “After The Dark” is going to hook you within its first three minutes. Depending on whether you were completely bored or absorbed in this class will determine how much you'll connect to this movie, which plays out more like an adaptation of a philosophy student's first, second and final thesis paper draft than an original screenplay written by Huddles himself. If, on the other hand, you've never had the pleasure of learning about Socrates' endless questioning or Plato's allegories about caves you might walk away thinking that philosophy classes are actually like this. Please don't.

And now he's found his Janet Leigh.
