When a massive power outage plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, a disparate group of individuals find themselves alone. The entire city's population has vanished into thin air, leaving behind heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows. Soon the daylight begins to disappear completely, and as the survivors gather in an abandoned tavern, they realize the darkness is out to get them, and only their rapidly diminishing light sources can keep them safe.

A gasoline powered generator is in continuous use in the bar's basement throughout most of the movie, giving off clearly visible fumes. No one is even bothered by this, let alone asphyxiated.
You um, do you uh, your light…
What? Oh, uh, I'm such a moron.
How's the movie?
Ah you know, Adam Sandler gets in a mess, wife gets pissed, runs from some people… predictable, formulaic, fart jokes. You wouldn't like it.
Mmm. How would you know what I like?
While parts of the movie peaked my interest, overall, it was very
disappointing. A vague plot, poor script, weak effects and actors
trying their best to make it work. Too bad they failed. A movie with
this premise has great potential, it can lead the viewer down a path
and let the audience intellectually fill in the blanks. In order for
that to occur, the movie itself must provide the plot points, the
material that that allows, and draws the viewer to want to connect the
dots and create, so to speak, their own movie within a movie. I just
gave up, and so, apparently, did the filmmakers. I won't gave away
anything, because there really isn't anything to tell.
