About Dark Tourist

A psychological-thriller in the haunting tradition of films like Taxi Driver, Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer and Monster, THE DARK TOURIST follows one mans journey into a chilling labyrinth of dark desire and twisted, obsessive perversion.

Security guard Jim Tahana (Cudllitz) has a strange hobby: grief tourism – the act of traveling with the intent to visit places of tragedy or disaster. For his vacation this year, Tahana heads to the outskirts of New Orleans, to the backwater home of notorious serial killer Carl Marznap. But as Jim’s rancid sexual impulses and weakening grip on reality deteriorate, his fascination with Marzap takes a shocking and violent detour that ultimately unlocks an unspeakable secret festering within him.
