Review: Dark City could've been one of the great Sci Fi's, right up there with Blade Runner or 2001. It's got the look...with it's gothic noir city, bathed in perpetual darkness. There's enough atmosphere here even for a Ridley Scott film.
The Strangers have psychokinetic ability, and use it to rearrange the city each night, so they can study how humans react. The story begins when John Murdock (Rufus Sewell) wakes up in a grimy bathtub, bloodstained and disoriented, seemingly having murdered a woman.
Mainly because it seems like an accident. Collectively written by David S.
