Residents of a suburban community enjoy a night at home with their friends and family, when they discover that someone in the neighborhood is killing people’s pets.

Director Kevin Tran received his BFA in Film & TV at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. Kevin has written and directed several short films including “Love Me When I’m Down,” which screened at the 2016 Santa Barbara Film Festival. The Dark End of Street is his feature length debut.

Director Statement;  The film is set in an idyllic, suburban community where someone is killing other resident’s pets. The plot focuses on several characters over the course of a single night: a lonely woman mourning her dog, the culprit committing the violent acts, an overly concerned family man, restless teenagers, and others. The Dark End of the Street is a film that explores the insecurities, fears and anxiety surrounding everyday middle-class lives, forcing its character to find connections beyond their own backyard.
