Dark Pool Series Builds Suspense "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on Jan. 27, 2012

Dark Pool is an expanding local suspense film series presented by Indie Episodic in association with Iron Mountain Films. Jim Krall, played by Jason Kuykendall, is a family man who winds up becoming partners with a shady operation called Dark Pool Investments. He tells his wife he was worried when he got home that the front door was open but she and their daughter weren't there. This short introduction sets up the storyline that unfolds in subsequent episodes as themes point to kidnapping and strange business relationships.

Although this episode is brief, it was chosen as video of the day for its creative suspense, acting and storyline twists despite a shoestring budget. The series launched in October 2011 and continues to expand in short episodes. The story, written by local actor Rick Gott, builds around Jim's quest to find his missing daughter as his wife seems to lack concern. To view the complete series visit Dark Pool's YouTube Channel.
