Very cool title for a good monster movie
Yeah, I went to go see the movie because it has a cool sounding title.
Overall, it was a good monster movie about a small town being hunted by a mystical creature the sheriff is discovering is real. The whole layout of the movie of was quite interesting. I like how they explained how the myth became real and why it’s never been seen before.
Ironically, one of things I dislike about the flick is the amount of talking done in the film. Sometimes I felt in their effort to use the conceal the monster bit, they manage to conceal the fright of the monster. I was not scared, I did not jump so if at any point that was their content, if failed.
Lead actor, Kevin Durand got to show his acting chops in the movie as a Sheriff grieving over the lost of a son, but this seemed like a large focus in what should have been a sub-plot. it’s not as cleaver as when it was done in From Dust till Dawn, which also had two distinguishably different but equal plots. All it really did was take away from the primary goal of the picture. It’s good for Durand cause his performance was great but help the picture it did not.
The monster that they did create for this movie was well played out both in story and in visual effects, it does not disappoint at all.
Dark was the night gets some brownie points for the title alone. It was a fun quiet movie that moved slowly towards an awesome built up that pays off, but gets sidetrack when it tries to be more than a monster flick. Worth checking out.
Spoilers follow …
Something is amiss in the small town community of Maiden Wood. Animals are going missing, and people are being reduced to dismembered limbs scattered amongst the autumn leaves. In fact, this is a very autumnal film – in many scenes, the colours are bled out of the images, or a subtle filter is placed on the camera, reducing the atmosphere to a dawn coldness. The soundtrack, too, is a mixture of sombre music and what could be the sound of a hollow wind. Director Jack Teller certainly imbues his world with an unsettling unease.
Into this, Sheriff Shields (Kevin Durand) tentatively strides, acting on varied reports of ‘something in the trees’. Shields is played with a kind of weighty sense of unease and disappointment. The emergence of muddied hoof-prints running through the area does nothing to lighten his mood. His estrangement with wife Susan (Bianca Kajlich) and son Adam (Ethan Khusidman) is nicely underscored: two people torn about by a tragedy who were clearly meant to be together. Never over-sentimental, but quietly powerful.
Windiga, a creature from Native American legend, is revealed very slowly, a limb at a time. It finally makes its appearance during a terrific, isolating snowstorm. Sometimes what you don’t see is more effective – but the way the creature is realised doesn’t let anything down. The showdown is terrific. What comes after is even better.
It’s a monster-on-the-loose film, and is an exceptional example of its kind.
