Sorgoi (Rafael Cherkaski) has big plans, he wants to travel the major cities of Europe to film a documentary for TV back in the small Eastern European country he's from, and he wants to find the "European Dream" - something he deems similar to the American Dream. Paris is his first stop, and at first, everything's great, everyone's nice, he's invited to parties ... and tends to drink a bit too much, which is why he loses his credit card. Then he gets beaten up and his camera's broken. Spending all his money on a new camera, he can't afford to stay at his hotel anymore, and first stays with a friend (Charles Dhumerelle), and when that friendship goes South he sleeps by the river, making friends with a bum (Roland David), who's nice enough to give Sorgoi a knife to "defend himself" - but Sorgoi soon finds other uses for the knife and things end being pretty ...


Ok, I'll admit freely the first act of Descent Into Darkness is less promising, as it looks and feels like a found footage low budget version of Borat, what with the slightly obnoxious guy from the East trying and failing to make perfect sense of Western culture - thing is, this film changes for the (better) after it's properly set up and once one starts to sympathize with the poor guy who wanders the streets of Paris rather cluelessly and seems to stumble from one misfortune into the next. And once his video shows plotholes (like how did he sneak out of his hotel room once the money ran out, or how did he and his friend part ways with the friend leaving him with a wad of money) things get interesting - and from here on, Descent Into Darkness doesn't disappoint one bit and gets more insane and explicitely violent pretty much by the minute, to culminate in a really disturbing finale.

Watch at your own risk - but if you like slightly bizarre horror, you'll probably love this!
