The Dark Man is the first film in a two part horror film series the second part being: The Dark Man 2: The Dark Man Returns
A flashback takes place one year before the events of the film with a teenager named Jarvis Scott with his 9 friends: Pammy Scott(also Jarvis's sister) and her boyfriend Danny Fineman, Natalie Benson, Jennifer Riley, Maddy Kales, Jake Grant, Mia Miles, Ben Gates and Jennifer's boyfriend, Micheal Green staying in a cabin the woods. His friends play a prank on Jarvis which is Pammy disguised and as a killer called "the dark man" which results in Pammy chasing Jarvis to a cliff and when Pammy reveals to him it was only a prank, Jarvis slips off the edge of the cliff and the fall kills him as he falls in a river. One year later the 9 friends return to the woods to try to get over the exprience when they get stalked by 2 unknown figures....
One year after the death of Jarvis the 8 friends go back to the woods and decide to stay in a Cabin there for two days and Jake goes down into the woods to look for his book which he dropped earlier. When he is doing so the dark man spots him and Jake spots him back and sees him holding a knife. Jake thinks it is Pammy again but he relizes it is not her when a pale savage creature attacks him. The pale creature is the dark man's pet who is named Jarvo by the dark man and as Jarvo kills Jake by snapping his neck and the dark man merely claps. Danny goes to look for Jake and finds his corpse and is attacked by the Dark Man. Danny manages stun him by punching him in the gut and escapes back to the Cabin. He finds everyone there except for Natalie and Ben who went to go relax and explains that there is 2 killers here that has already killed Jake and they need to find Natalie and Ben quickly. Pammy calls 911 on her cell phone and they tell Pammy they will be there in 1 hour. Jennifer and Micheal believe this to be another prank and stay in the cabin while the others look. Meanwhile the dark man and Jarvo (the pale creature) decide to split up: the pale creature goes after Natalie and Ben while the figure goes after Jennifer and Micheal and meet up again to take out the others afterward. The creature finds Ben and suddenly pops up in front of him while Ben is investigating a noice it had made and impales him on a sharp knife the dark man gave it. When Natalie goes to investigate, Jarvo appears behind her and kills Natalie by bashing her face in.
Pammy, Danny, Mia and Maddy find their bodies and they light a match to see better and when Jarvo arrives, Mia burns it with the match and Jarvo runs away and it is revealed that it is vunerable to fire. Meanwhile the dark man spots Jennifer and Micheal making out by themselves and decides to let them do it and thinks to himself about romance scenes from horror movies and how they are almost always interrupted. After deciding he has watched enough he stabs Micheal through the head, killing him. Jennifer throws a blanket on the dark man to try to confuse him but Jarvis still manages to throw Jennifer through a window to her death. The four remaining survivors find a journal about the creature, it is called a Wendigo which is a human who resorts to cannibalism and they think that Jarvis may have survived his fall and his now back for revenge. They hatch an idea to lure The creature to the cabin and kill it using gasoline and the fireplace. Jarvo and the dark man reunite and he pets Jarvo for a job well done. The dark man and Jarvo attack the four, The Dark Man kills Mia with a gun and Jarvo pops out of nowhere in front of Maddy. Maddy tries to fend off Jarvo by punching him repeatingly although she has poor fighting skills. The punches barely make him flinch, don't hurt Jarvo at all and only irritate him and kills Maddy when she is too exhausted to continue. Pammy and Danny, the only survivors left, run for the cabin when Pammy trips and gives the killer an opening. He tries to shoot Pammy but misses until he runs out of bullets. They both manage to escape and arrive at the cabin until they are found by both of the killers.
The dark man halts Jarvo from attacking and he finally reveals himself to be Jarvis, still alive from the events one year ago and back for revenge. He reveals that the creature is really Pammy's father who got lost in the woods years ago and resorted to cannibalism which turned him into a wendigo but managed to remember his family. Which lead to Jarvo and Jarvis regonizing each other and Jarvo had caught Jarvis mid fall (with Pammy not noticing it). Although regonizing Pammy he knows that she is partly responsible for Jarvis falling of the cliff and does not try to help her. Pammy tries to reason with Jarvis by reminding him what happened was a prank and that they did not mean for him to be pushed off the cliff. Jarvis considers this for a moment but while they are talking Danny manages to light the cabin ablaze. Jarvis orders Jarvo to run out and gets out with Pammy and Danny not far behind. Jarvis's jacket gets caught on fire and he takes it off to avoid being burnt. Jarvo does not manage to make it before the cabin explodes. Jarvo emeges from the wreckage, still alive but badly burned and makes one more attempt to kill Danny and Pammy however Pammy manages to decapitate her father with a shovel finally killing him. Furious at the death of his father and savior, Jarvis fatally stabs Danny and runs off as Pammy and Danny embrace and have a final moment together before Danny dies from his wound. Jarvis and Pammy who are both enraged at the death of a loved one, attack each other in a final confrontation. Pammy manages to knock Jarvis's knife out of his hand and high kicks him right in his face. Jarvis relizes that Pammy has trained in martial arts and in hand to hand combat after what happened a year ago. After a struggle where they both taunt and hurt each other (Pammy also takes off her shoes to fight) he manages to trip Pammy and begins to strangle her. Jennifer is then revealed to still be alive and tries to help Pammy, she manages to get Jarvis off of Pammy but Jarvis picks up his knife and kills Jennifer.
While doing this Pammy is now running away. He chases her to the cliff where he fell down a year ago and the two fight again. Jarvis manages to slash Pammy multiple times with the knife until Pammy knocks it off the cliff. Pammy beats Jarvis severely with attacks for each of his victims and does a acrobatic face kick which knocks 3 teeth out and breaks his nose (this one for Danny). He retaliates by stabbing Pammy in her left shoulder and right leg with a spare knife he kept in his pocket and begins to strangle her again. He is about to kill her when she manages to stab Jarvis with his own knife fatally . As she moves in to push him off Jarvis knows that he is too weak to win now but makes one last injury to Pammy by stabbing her in the stomach. Pammy uses the last of her strength to push Jarvis off the edge this time the fall really kills him as Jarvo is not here to save him. Pammy manages to make it back to the wreckage of the cabin before collapsing due to blood loss from the injuries from the fight. In a mid-credit scene it is revealed that police found her in time and manage to take her to a hospital to edventually recover. In a post credit scene the screen zooms in on Jarvis's body and then we see a ghost-like hand pop out and hear Jarvis laughing which means he is now a ghost.
