A man wakes up with no memory in a nightmarish world without sun in DARK CITY.

In a city perpetually shrouded in night, a man named John Murdoch wakes up in a motel room with total amnesia. He is immediately accused of a series of brutal murders (none of which he remembers), a woman who claims to be his wife and a very mysterious doctor.  In his quest for the truth about his memory, why the city is always dark, why no one notices, and why people walk around comatose after midnight, Murdoch discovers an underworld run by telekinetics called “The Strangers” who possess the ability to alter the city and its inhabitants. Can he stop them before they destroy him and his mind completely?

Part of Nitehawk’s FUTURE NOIR midnite series.
