An interplanetary transport ship crash-lands on a planet overrun with vicious night-dwelling creatures.

ABSTRACT
Hunter-Gratzner, an interplanetary cargo vessel, crashes on an inhospitable desert planet after getting caught up in a harsh meteor storm, killing all but eleven individuals aboard. Among the survivors is Richard Riddick, an escaped convict blessed with surgically-enhanced eyes granting him exceptional vision in the dark; this proves to come in handy in a big way when the remaining crew learn that their accidental destination is populated by bloodthirsty creatures thriving on a lack of sunlight, a problem further complicated by the impending arrival of a month-long total eclipse.
