Dark Blood Trailer: River Phoenix' Last Film
Dark Blood, Starring the Late River Phoenix, Will Debut at 2012 Netherlands Film Festival
River Phoenix passed away in 1993, partway through filming Dark Blood with Jonathan Pryce, Judy Davis, and Karen Black. The film, directed by George Sluizer, was shelved.
Nearly 20 years later, Sluizer has recut Dark Blood and will show it at the Netherlands Film Festival. The film is about two Hollywood stars (Pryce and Davis) whose car breaks down on an abandoned nuclear test site. A young widower (Phoenix) takes them in and falls for the woman. Cue bad things happening.
River Phoenix was in the middle of filming Dark Blood when he died on October 31, 1993 from a drug overdose outside The Viper Room, a Sunset Strip club once part-owned by Johnny Depp.
