MPAA Ratings: Approved
"Director Charles Lemont’s versatility at directing movies, based on a wide range of topics from side-splitting comedies to hair raising horrors and mind boggling mysteries, is evidenced in this enthralling vintage murder mystery that has the audience guessing for the better part of the show. Based on an amazingly intriguing plot, the narrative is full of twists and turns, making it very difficult for anybody to guess who held the murder weapon. Some award-worthy performances from Irene Ware, Ray Walker and Berton Churchill help in adding to the charisma of this historic classic. The absorbing account ends just when you are congratulating yourself and saying, "Hey, I’ve got it all figured out". Few, if any, among the audience are likely to deduce who the real villain is. Experience this mystifying drama from A2ZCDS, which will leave you shaking your heads in disbelief when the plot finally unfolds!"
"Agatha Christie couldn’t have come up with a more gripping yarn. Berton Churchill and Irene Ware outdo themselves and do complete justice to their roles. ‘The Dark Hour’s plot is so finely tuned that it baffled me – a veteran mystery aficionado – till the very end."
Constance Pennyworth (Twin Falls, IDAHO)
"Hey, for all know-it-alls out there – figure out the denouement of ‘The Dark Hour’ before the director is good and ready to tell you, and the beer’s on me. Today’s mystery writers should take a page out of this timeless vintage film…"
