A lone rider arrives in a small high mountain village; nobody knows where he’s from and nobody wants him there. Greider (Sam Riley - CONTROL, MALEFICENT) introduces himself as a photographer from America, and the town’s patriarch, Old Brenner, provides him with shelter for the harsh winter ahead. The village cut off by snowfall and barely a ray of sunlight reaching the valley, a tragic accident leads to the death of one of Brenner’s beloved sons. When another son is mysteriously killed, it’s clear this is not a coincidence: the time has come for Brenner’s family to pay, and Greider plans to settle a score long forgotten by everyone but him. The Dark Valley is a masterful western with "a brooding atmosphere of suspicion and menace..." (Indiewire)




  • A Terrific German Western

    By Rock Hound
    The movie is slow in the first 30 minutes, then builds energy and suspense for a while, and finishes with the best Revenge/Action sequences since Clint Eastwood's High Plains Drifter and Clint's Unforgiven. Sam Riley is good as the anti-hero with a mysterious mission to accomplish. Thanks to his blazing shotgun, he has a decent chance of carrying out his plans. Movie asks viewer to consider a lot of things, including: Is violence ever the appropriate method of righting serious wrongs? How come such a beautifully directed and photographed flick did not gain more acclaim? I'm sure other viewers will have better questions than mine. Anyway, you might wish to rent or buy this movie.
  • Amazing Hidden Film

    By SilentSimpleton
    This movie deserves accolades. A twisted, brutal, yet noble story. Well-acted. Well-plotted. A little short on action, but makes up for it with originality, and a haunting deeper thought. I love Westerns. This is different, but nearly as good as The Salvation.
  • Great Movie But Shame on Apple

    This is a great movie, and I encourage you to watch it on Netflix in the original German with English subtitles. The dubbing is just horrible, and shame on Apple for only offering the English dubbed audio.
  • Great Western

    Best Western sense Unforgiven!!

    By Jabez Dawz
    The movie itself is quite good, but find another way to see it - it’s been terribly dubbed into English and the performances are so bad they almost ruin the film.
  • What is this horrible dubbing?!

    By pen_expers
    I bought this expecting to be able to at least watch it with the original German audio. It's not even included, just this atrocious dubbed version. I even bought this in Austria, a German speaking country. This is unwatchable.
  • buy non-us version, not this one

    The dubbing ruins this itunes movie; shame on them for selling this butchered version of such a great movie
