Can A Darkness Loving D&D Nerd, Vampire Wizard, Sorceress Ninja Queen and a Snakeman Save the World From Eternal Darkness?


Tagline- Who Will decide how much Darkness is too Dark?


Logline:  

Three Supernatural misfits and an RPG Dungeon Master pursue an evil mastermind to clear their names while facing their greatest challenge of all- not killing each other in the process.


Synopsis:

Dark Darkness is an offbeat epic about Ronald a D&D nerd, Mordecai a dread vampire wizard, Ganamazol a sorceress ninja queen and Jerry the Snakeman who all individually receive a mysterious invitation from Dr. Darkness to his Darkness convention. When they meet at the Darkness convention, they have only enough time to discover how much they clash before they are all simultaneously framed for a grizzly murder. Forced to work together to solve the mystery and clear their names, they blunder onto a greater plot of a Dark Lord’s lust for power to hunt down ancient artifacts needed to perform the ritual of Magog and throw the world into eternal darkness.


Now our four cross genre characters must use their individual powers to establish themselves as “Dark Lords” or combine them together for a greater purpose, leading them to question the value of friendship and how to navigate the million shades of gray in the darkness.
