Dark City (1998)

A man struggles with memories of his past, including a wife he cannot remember, in a nightmarish world with no sun.

John Murdoch (Rufus Sewell) awakens in a hotel bathtub, suffering from amnesia. He receives a phone call from Dr. Daniel Schreber (Kiefer Sutherland), who urges him to flee the hotel to evade a group of men who are after him.

During the phone talk, Murdoch discovers the corpse of a brutalized, ritualistically murdered woman, along with a bloody knife. He flees the scene, just as the group of men (known as the Strangers) show up to investigate the room.

Eventually Murdoch learns his own name, and finds he has a wife named Emma (Jennifer Connelly). He is also sought by police inspector Frank Bumstead (William Hurt) as a suspect in a series of murders committed around the city, though he cannot remember killing anybody.

While being pursued by the Strangers, Murdoch discovers that he has mind powers–which the Strangers also possess, and refer to as “tuning”—and he manages to use these powers to escape from them…
