The film "Dark Places" stars Charlize Theron as the character Libby Day.

In the mid 1980s, when Libby was a little girl, she was the sole survivor of a brutal attack which left her sisters and mother dead. Rumor had it that the murder was part of a satanic ritual.

Years later, Libby is approached by a young man who's part of a macabre group fascinated by multiple murders. They call themselves "The Kill Club."

"Dark Places" is based on a novel of the same name written by best-selling author Gillian Flynn. 

This is the second book of Flynn's to be adapted for the big screen— a film version of her work "Gone Girl" came out last year. 

Take Two host Alex Cohen spoke with Flynn about her latest adaptation.
