Libby Day is a lifeless woman who survived the massacre of her family in their farmhouse in the countryside of Kansas when she was eight. She's been living on donations and lectures ever since. Thirty years ago, the police believed that a satanic cult was responsible for the murder of her mother and two sisters, and her brother Ben was convicted with her testimony in court. Today, however, an acquaintance, Lyle Wirth, invites Libby to visit "The Kill Club", where amateurs investigate famous crimes, and she finds that they believe Ben is innocent. Libby needs money and, in return, accepts to revisit the slaughter of her family and comes up to the painful revelations and the ultimate truth. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil  (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

DARK PLACES is directed and written by Giles Paquet Brenner and produced by Azim Bolkiah. To me had an interesting story, but for me in some way there wasn’t the cohesiveness between the actors and the characters they played. The main draw here was Charlize Theron a great actress in her own right, but the neurotics of the character she played was lost in the fact that she tried to play down her looks and acting range with weak tactics like wearing a hat the majority of the film and bursts of rage that seemed better fit for her role in FURY ROAD. She is not all to blame for this film not exciting me, but either way for DARK PLACES I give it 2 stars.
