In Dark Places is a suspenseful thriller that was released in 1997. It was directed by Michael B. Druxman and stars Joan Severance, Bryan Kestner, and John Vargas. The movie is set in Los Angeles, and the story revolves around a series of brutal murders that occur in the city. The movie kicks off with the murder of a young woman in a hotel room. The killer has left behind a single clue at the scene of the crime - a cryptic message written on the wall in blood. The message reads "See You In Hell." The police immediately begin investigating the case, but they're unable to find any leads.

Meanwhile, we're introduced to our main protagonist, a successful editor named Karen Rikehardt (played by Joan Severance). Karen is still dealing with the recent death of her husband, who was killed in a car accident. She's struggling to move on from the tragedy, and her work at the publishing house isn't helping her either. Her boss, Carl (played by John Vargas), is constantly pushing her to find the next bestseller.

One day, Karen receives a manuscript from a new author named Michael (played by Bryan Kestner). The manuscript is a dark and twisted story that explores the mind of a serial killer. Karen is immediately captivated by the story and decides to publish it. However, things take a dark turn when she realizes that the story seems to mirror the recent murders that have been happening in the city.

As Karen continues to read the manuscript, she becomes convinced that Michael is somehow involved in the murders. She tries to confront him but finds that he's evasive and unwilling to talk about his work. In the meantime, the killer continues to strike, leaving behind clues that seem to point to Michael.

Karen starts to investigate Michael's past and discovers that he has a troubled history. As she begins to dig deeper, she finds that he may be connected to the murders in ways that she never imagined.

The tension in the movie builds as Karen gets closer to the truth. She finds herself drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the killer, and her own life is put in danger. The movie keeps you on the edge of your seat as it slowly reveals the identity of the killer and the reason behind the murders.

Overall, In Dark Places is a well-crafted thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end. The performances by the main cast, especially Joan Severance, are nuanced and compelling. The movie also features a haunting soundtrack that adds to the tension and mood of the film. If you're a fan of suspenseful thrillers, then In Dark Places is definitely worth a watch.
