I was anticipating the release of this movie from the beginning of 2017. When it came out, I had high hopes for it. I wasn't disappointed. The Dark Tapes has a clever way of connecting each of the four stories together and each one shines a unique light on a specific genre within the horror universe. If you liked southbound and V/H/S, you will love The Dark Tapes.
Amazing Found Footage Experience (by chadinterrupted)
I liked it so much I'm here actually writing a review about it wishing I could see more. Every noise in the dark of my room has me on edge. I almost can't even sit here and write this because I feel vulnerable not being in my bed covered with blankets. I am trying to think of the fastest thing to write so I can not have to sit here anymore. It was a very creative found footage movie. If there was any criticism I had it's that every segment had a very similar tone in the same way an artist's new album can sometimes almost be too consistent. Like every song sounded the same. But <more>
A Fun Found Footage Anthology! (by gjaneway69-640-648166)
This is my first review ever here on ye olde IMDb, been a lurker for many years but never posted a review, but wanted to for this title.I am a found footage nut, always have been and always will be, i've seen some absolutely dire pieces of filmmaking and some of the best. This definitely falls into the best part of the genre. I'm not going to give much away as it's more fun to go in completely blind not knowing what's to come. This movie is an anthology movie and it's right up there with the likes of similar movies like V/H/S. Without going into details, the wrap around <more>
story, the ghosthunting story and the alien story are the best for me in this movie.Give it a go, if you are a found footage fan you will love it, if you don't like found footage give it a go it might surprise you.
Great indie horror flick! VHS/REC vibes. (by Dead_Rabbits)
I really thoroughly enjoyed "The Dark Tapes". It's a wraparound film, which I'm not sure if that qualifies as spoiler material or not, but you do revisit the initial setting at the end and I would describe the beginning upon initial view as somewhat stilted. It feels like you're just thrown into the mix and you kind of are, but sticking around to the end pays off and feels a lot more fluid the second time around. I enjoyed it and since my first viewing I've been wanting to re watch it. It's fun, it's inventive and the underlying story line is really <more>
intriguing. Although, that's not to say that the anthology and stories inside the story are not interesting. They're fantastic. I got a very VHS/REC vibe from the entire film. It's also clear it was made with a lot of passion and love from the filmmakers. You can see it in every detail, I think. Overall, just a really fun time. I will be happily adding this to my "purchased" list.
As far as found footage horror goes I found this to be an alright movie. Then when I looked it up and found out it was a from scratch no budget movie I gave it much more credit. People have made a lot worse movies with a lot more money then these people. They didn't have much to work with, yet the movie still turned out good and you could tell everyone or almost everyone put their heart into trying to make it good and interesting. I wish they advertised they didn't have any budget because people would appreciate this a lot more. With some money behind a future movie I do believe they <more>
can turn out something awesome to rival or surpass ABC's of Death or VHS.
I first found out about the Dark Tapes through a suggested ad on Facebook, and have been following the anticipated release of this title now for a few years. I finally had the opportunity to sit down and watch it, excited for the key-moments in the initial trailer that had piqued my interest. As a fan of Lovecraftian fiction, I found that this film in particular played on the same themes and ideas that generally play out in any of H.P. Lovecraft's stories: paranormal or unexplained phenomena that is built upon a foundation of almost-scientific transmogrify. In a way, I am reminded of <more>
Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal--" albeit, satire-- where an idea or story so profoundly horrific is presented but utilizes empirical factors to present the case, and tie the whole story together. I'm not typically a fan of the "found-footage" genre of movies, wherein the usual tropes of "jump scares" are overdone time and time again, and the Dark Tapes avoids these played out clichés and focuses solely on the stories which it presents. It attempts to distance itself from other similar titles within the same genre, I feel, and it cements itself as something entirely unique. Whereas I can understand that this film might not be for everybody-- especially those who have a keen eye for production elements-- if you are someone who enjoys stories and imagery that works to get inside of your head and leaves you asking questions than this movie is definitely for you. I long anticipated this title, and I was not disappointed; I only hope that there will be more like this in the future.
