Dark Was the Night is a 2014 horror thriller directed by Jack Heller. In the film, the Sheriff (Kevin Durand) of a small rural town must investigate mysterious disappearances in the isolated community of Maiden Woods, while coping with a personal loss of his own. He soon finds out that the cause of the disappearances might not be entirely natural.

The following weapons were used in the film Dark Was the Night:


Smith & Wesson .38 Revolver (Non Gun)

Sheriff Paul Shields (Kevin Durand) uses a "Non Gun" Smith & Wesson .38 Revolver as his chief sidearm in the film. "Non Guns" are frequently used for scenes in movies or television shows in which the use of real weapons firing blanks is deemed unsafe. They are electronically-operated and discharge small explosive squibs that make a flash and produce smoke, but they do not eject shell casings or have any moving parts besides the trigger.

Glock 19

Deputy Donny Saunders (Lukas Haas) carries a Glock pistol in his holster in the movie, altough it changes into a "Non Gun" Beretta 92FS in the film for the latter part of the film. It is probable the Glock is a stunt replica or a non-firing replica since it is never seen out of it's holster.

Earl Everheart (Nick Damici) also uses a "Non Gun" Remington 870 shotgun with wooden furniture to defend the church during the climax.
