Hi, I am wondering about the meaning of "Pitch Black", it is an australian movie with Vin Diesel among others http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0134847/ . In my country it is translated as something like "Very-very black darkness" or "Very-very deep darkness".
What is your English translation of "Pitch Black"? Is it some kind of slang in Australia or in the United States?
Thanks in advance.
Also: black as night, black as sin, black as coal, coal-black, jet-black....
FYI: pitch in the meaning of 'tar'; jet in the meaning of 'semi-precious stone'
