Pitch Black is a Sci-fi thriller about a group of marooned space travelers who are struggling for survival on a seemingly lifeless sun-scorched world.

A spaceship is transporting a disparate group of people to a far-away galactic outpost called New Mecca. Mechanical failures cause the craft to crash-land on an abandoned planet that has three suns and no night.

The only member of the crew to survive is junior pilot Carolyn Fry, while the passengers who climb from the wreckage include a police officer and the prisoner he's transporting, Riddick.

As Fry and the other survivors survey the abandoned dwellings of the desert world while trying to decide what to do next, one of them is killed by a mutant creature living in an abandoned mining site.

The vicious and bloodthirsty mutants, who live underground, have killed all previous inhabitants of the planet; they cannot stand sunlight, but research reveals that the planet has a total eclipse every 22 years, and the next one is due any moment.

The film won two Australian Cinematography Society Awards.
