Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A young widower (River Phoenix) retreats to a remote nuclear testing site to await the apocalypse, but finds his solitude disrupted by a high-powered Hollywood couple (Jonathan Pryce and Judy Davis) whose car broke down during a drive through the desert. Initially coming to the couple's aid, the isolated man soon decides to imprison them. Though director George Sluizer (The Vanishing) originally ceased production of Dark Blood when the film's young star Phoenix died tragically at 23, the film arrived onscreen nearly 20 years after its original scheduled release date.
