Despite trying to leave behind a life of crime, Danny (Grant Lancaster) reluctantly teams up with naïve rich kid Liam (Brooks Russell) and wildcard drug dealer Kit Viper (Corey Scott Rutledge) for a robbery that leaves them in possession of a mysterious supernatural artefact with immense power…


” …it tries to blend light yet quirky crime comedy with cultist, underworldly horror, including bits of ultra-violence. However, the concept works much better than could be expected, thanks to a very clever script, a fluid directorial effort that gets the mood right throughout, and the talent to not take itself too seriously without ever becoming self-parody.” Search My Trash

In the US, The Blacklight is currently receiving a theatrical release in select locations by Porter + Craig Film & Media Distribution in April 2022.
