Dark Valley, The
The Dark Valley is a 2014 Austrian German movie directed by Andreas Prochaska. At the end of the 19th century, a stranger named Greider arrives on a horse and mule in a sleepy and remote Alpine high valley. The path there is little more than a half-weathered footpath between rocks. To escape the cold winter, Greider asks the conspiratorial village community for a place to stay. Since he can offer them a few gold coins in return, they put him up with the widow Gader and her daughter Luzi, who is about to get married. After the village is snowed in overnight, one of the village patriarch's sons dies in an accident. Afterward, when the patriarch's son inexplicably loses his life, doubts arise as to whether they were accidents. Immediately Greider is suspected of having something to do with the accidents. In addition, suspicions spread that an old, dark secret of the inhabitants might have something to do with it.
The following weapons were used in the film The Dark Valley:
A Gewehr 1888 is very briefly held by one of the Brenner family members seen during the opening. The appearance of this rifle in this scene is probably incorrect. No more precise dates are given, but it cannot be correct if Greider is around 30 years old and the event takes place at the end of the 19th century. He would therefore have to be 11 years old at the most if calculated from the year 1888. In addition, the rifle is not well visible. So if it is not the updated 1905 version, it would be correct to see the rifle later in the film.
Mosin Nagant M91/30
Otto Brenner (Martin Leutgeb) is seen with an anachronistic Mosin Nagant M91/30 rifle which changes owners several times in the film. It is unclear why this particular rifle is used, as the Gewehr 88 was available.
Werndl Karabiner M1867/77
Luis Brenner (Clemens Schick) owns a Werndl Karabiner which he uses several times.
Springfield Model 1873 Carbine
During deer hunting, Rudolf Brenner (Johann Nikolussi) wields a Springfield 1873 "Trapdoor" Carbine.
Winchester Model 1876
A Winchester Model 1876 is used by Greider (Sam Riley) throughout the movie.
Double Barreled Shotgun
Hans (Tobias Moretti) and Hubert Brenner (Helmuth A. Häusler) wield two different 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotguns. Another shotgun is carried by Otto Brenner (Martin Leutgeb) who received it from Luis.
