Alone in the Dark is 1982 slasheresque horror movie directed by Jack Sholder [1] and it stars Dwight Schultz, Donald Pleasence, Martin Landau and Jack Palance. It was also the first film released by New Line Cinema.

Dr. Dan Potter has just arrived in the psychiatric haven of Dr. Bain to replace Dr. Merton. Some of the patients, who really liked Dr. Merton, come to conclusion that Potter has killed him and now he is going to kill them.

Yeah, it's a case of primo Insane Troll Logic, but these people are insane.

One night, a power outage caused by a power plant failure lets them escape the haven. During the ensuing looting, they arm themselves and start seeking out our good doctor...

These tropes were found in the dark:


 Hawkes: "So... it's not just us crazy folk that kill. We all kill... when we must. And we all die... when it's time."
