There is a new DC universe fan film out, The Demon in the Dark, following the Secret Six as they try to navigate Gotham while being hunted by a mysterious dark figure (Give you a guess who that might be). Despite a rather small budget of $5000, the film in interesting and action packed.
From the film’s description.
A secret group of six must work together to deliver a “package” while evading an unknown predator prowling the dark streets of Gotham City. Is it a monster, an alien, or simply a psychopath on a rampage?
Explosions, stabbings and gunfire quickly become part of the plan as the squad desperately races to the drop off point, leaving smoking piles of destruction in their wake.
The Secret Six in this case are based off Gail Simone’s run starting in 2005, where the team is made up of villain mercenaries taking high risk but high reward jobs. The make up of the team varies as people die or quit.
The whole thing felt a little rushed but there is only so much you can do with $5000 and you are filming in the middle of New York. I thought the effects were good enough for what it is.
Anyways check it out!
