pitch black


What's the best translation into spanish for pitch black in the fallowing sentence:

I looked outside of my bedroom. It was pitch black. I got out of my bed running to the lounge room in-search of my dad.

Thanks in advance...

    Oscuridad absoluta / total.
    Pitch is a type of tar... it's the blackest thing you can really see when there is any light, hence pitch black.

    Pitch black es negro absoluto, el negro más negro posible. Vamos que no se veía un carajo. En el contexto de la frase, yo usaría "Estaba completamente a oscuras"
