Darkness Falls is a 1999 drama film by John Howlett, very loosely adapted from N. J. Crisp's psychological thriller Dangerous Obsession and directed by Gerry Lively.[1]

N. J. Crisp's name does not appear on the films credits.

The film was shot in late 1997 on the Isle of Man.


With his pregnant wife at death's door after a car crash, desperate husband John Barrett (Winstone) invades the home of Mark Driscoll (Dutton) and holds both Driscoll and his rich, neglected wife Sally (Fenn) hostage in order to understand the events that led to his wife ending up in a coma.
