this movie makes little to no sense, it's fucking dumb, brenden fraser is a terrible actor and Viggo Mortensen plays a terrible mute. How can you be mute and still whistle?

A truly bizarre film featuring a lot of future stars (Brendan Fraser, Viggo Mortensen, and Ashley Judd), The Passion of Darkly Noon follows a young man who escapes from a cult and attempts to fit in with a modern couple living in a rural location. Unfortunately, Darkly''s (yes, that's his name) love for the beautiful young woman begins to drive him insane once her mute boyfriend returns. Intensely strange and definitely original, The Passion of Darkly Noon delivers a few moments of twistedness but ultimately fails to entirely make up for its somewhat idiotic aesthetic.

You'll never watch another Brendan Frazer movie again after seeing this movie. Now I can't watch any of the Mummy movies without thinking of him wrapped in barbed wire, masturbating in the tool shed.
