Excellent Scary Movie! (by gratefulgiveaways)
I thoroughly enjoyed "The Darkness". I became invested in the characters and enjoyed the unique qualities such as the setting in the beginning, the extra family drama that had nothing to do with the story line, the scary entities that were different and kept me intrigued the whole time. Very very good movie! Highly recommended for those who appreciate the little unique things in scary movies.
i found it effective (by disdressed12)
I actually enjoyed this supernatural thriller.i found it very suspenseful and eerie at times.the music was great.and the acting was good all around.Kevin Bacon Plays Peter Taylor.Radha Mitchell plays his wife Bronny.Lucy Fry plays their daughter Stephanie,and David Mazouz plays their son Michael.Mazous is a stand out here.the plot is basically this.Peter Taylor Bacon and his family return from a camping trip at the grand canyon.almost from the moment they arrive home,strange things begin to happen.little things at first,which slowly escalate to more serious events.the low rating here 4.2/10 <more>
is unjustified,in my opinion.while I wouldn't call it a masterpiece,i think it was still effective.for me,The Darkness is 7.6/10
Insidious the remake but without being Insidious the remake (by Robert_duder)
Literally if The Darkness had been announced as an Insidious remake I would have believed it. There are so many things that are identical between the two films. The good news for them is that Insidious is freaking amazing so watching a similar story done nearly as well is worthy and was entertaining. It wasn't nearly as creepy and it did feel very cliché but it was still solidly entertaining. The cast was very good and the story was well written. Essentially if you liked Insidious or even the plethora of similar "Amityville Family gets haunted" style PG-13 horror like Sinister, <more>
The Conjuring, Possession and so on then you will really enjoy The Darkness. Literally the only thing stopping this from at least being a huge 9 is the fact that it is cliché and recycled in a lot of ways. Even the name itself "The Darkness" seems almost too stereotypical. It also lacks a truly great scary scene. There were certain moments in any good horror film that just get under your skin and The Darkness is lacking that "moment."The cast is very solid as I mentioned. Kevin Bacon fills the father role very nicely. Perhaps the script doesn't give him as much to work with as he could have but certainly his chemistry on screen and star power is enough to drive the film. Not to mention the fact how damn good this guy looks at FIFTY-EIGHT years old. he is actually believable as a middle-aged-ish guy with younger kids. He's also believable with Radha Mitchell who plays his wife and 15 years his junior. I've always liked Mitchell, especially in Silent Hill. I think she has a certain look that fits the tough scream queen image. She is a little underused in this film but she still plays the Mom role nicely. Much like Bacon though she is underdeveloped as a character. David Mazouz who was excellent on Fox's Touch plays a similar character here as an autistic boy haunted by ghosts. He obviously plays it well and it's a subtle role but very good for the type of character he is. Lucy Fry is also very good as the daughter of the family. Director Greg Mclean was behind the brilliant horror film and it's even more brilliant sequel, Wolf Creek so I know he has the eye for horror. He certainly sets a tone here and the film is very dark and creepy and commanding. I think it just lacks polish in some areas and it struggles to differentiate itself as we mentioned. It feels like the script was left over bits from stronger stories. Nonetheless, I'm not bashing the film. I liked it a lot. It definitely has it's moments and well worth the time. It just won't be as memorable as the other aforementioned titles. 8/10
Echoes of POLTERGEIST reflect this haunting horror film (by george.schmidt)
THE DARKNESS 2016 **1/2 Kevin Bacon, Radha Mitchell, Lucy Fry, David Mazouz, Paul Reiser, Ming-Na Wen, Jennifer Morrison, Matt Walsh, Trian Long Smith. Echoes of POLTERGEIST reflect this haunting horror film about a family encountering malevolent Native American spirits AKA Anasazi who make their way into their home after a vacation trek to the Grand Canyon and communicating with the autistic youngest member Mazouz with spooky results. Well-cast and rather well directed by Greg McLean who collaborated on the hit-and-miss script with Shayne Armstrong and Shane Krause the film is better <more>
than expected in a rather well traversed genre flick. Trivial note: nice reunion of DINER co-stars Bacon and Reiser as friends and co-workers.
