Ring of Darkness is a 2004 horror-thriller movie starring Adrienne Barbeau, Stephen Martines, and Jeremy Jackson. The movie revolves around a rock band named "The Night Owl" who, in search of fame and fortune, signs up for a reality show competition. However, as they enter the isolated Gothic castle, they realize that this competition is not a regular one, and they might not make it out alive.

The Night Owl, comprising of lead singer Victor (Stephen Martines), guitarist Bebe (Ryan Starr), drummer Miles (Andrew Levitas), and bassist Heather (Sebastian Bach), is coerced into participating in a reality show competition called "Bite Me." The competition requires the band members to stay in an isolated castle and record an album while the producers keep adding challenges to the mix.

As soon as the band members enter the castle, strange and eerie things start happening to them. Victor's nightmares become a reality, and Bebe keeps seeing the ghost of a little girl, who claims to have been murdered in the castle. Furthermore, the castle's caretaker, Hildie (Adrienne Barbeau), seems to have sinister motives for being there, and the show's producer, Rex (Jeremy Jackson), keeps pushing the limits of the challenges to dangerous levels.

As the competition progresses, the challenges become more dangerous and life-threatening, and the band members start to realize that there is something evil in the castle. The Night Owl must come together and solve the mystery behind the castle before they become victims of the sinister force.
