Darkroom 1989
After tackling the nightmare of murder in a small-town house located near an orange grove in 1988's "Grandmother's House", producer Nico Mastorakis returns in 1989 with "Darkroom", which presents the horror of... murder in a small-town house located near an orange grove.

It's a family weekend for Janet, who's reunited with her mother, Nora, grandfather Forrest, sister Cindy, and cousins Mark and Perry. Joining the fun is Cindy's boyfriend, Steve, who's planning for the future with his partner, trying to introduce the idea of long-term commitment.
What should be a happy reunion is quickly disrupted by the arrival of an unexpected guest: a mystery killer who photographs their unsuspecting victims before murdering them in a variety of brutal ways. As her family and friends are picked off one by one, Janet is forced to fend off the mysterious maniac, all the while uncovering unsettling secrets surrounding her family’s violent and perverse past...
