Pitch Black

4

Black by name, black by nature, David Twohy's scorching man-versus-monster movie is one of the most bleak-yet-exciting sci-fi flicks ever made. Trapped on a deserted planet with a deadly species of nocturnal aliens, the passengers of a crashed spaceship figure they should be okay as long as they stick to daylight. And then along comes an eclipse... Made for pennies but looking like a million dollars, this is as enjoyable, smart and charisma-packed (Vin Diesel's gravel-voiced anti-hero is unforgettable) a film as any you'll pick up this year.
