Spooky and creepy Spanish film with international cast
The movie centers about a family living outskirts Barcelona and the terrible events that happen to the daughter (Anna Paquin) and the rest of family : father (Iain Glenn) , mother (Lena Olin) and grandfather (Giancarlo Giannini).
The motion picture gets a certain likeness to films as ¨Amytiville¨ saga and the recent ¨The others¨ and ¨The sixth sense¨ , the director Jaume Balaguero takes parts each other films . In the movie there is terror , suspense , drama and from the beginning until ending the horror and tension is endless . The picture plot is pretty twisted and the final has an extraordinary surprise .
Interpretation by Anna Paquin as scared adolescent is average , she’s very young and lack her experience , better play her grandfather and parents : Giancarlo Giannini , Lena Olin and Iain Glenn , both of whom are riveting . The film is produced by Julio Fernandez of Fantastic Factory , corporation with deal of hits in terror genre.
Balaguero direction is outstanding , Xavi Gimenez cinematography with lights and shades originates a frightening and scary atmosphere and Carlos Cases music creates true fear . Director Jaume Balagueró (Rec , Rec 2 .., Fragiles , The nameless , Tight sleep) uses uneasy knowledge for both horror and supernatural genre .
The flick will appeal to ghostly atmosphere enthusiasts and horror genre fans . Rating : 6,5/10 good
A good, unusual, and challenging film
I was very pleasantly surprised upon seeing Catalan director Jaume Balagueró’s «Darkness». Contemporary Hispanic cinema, especially Catalan cinema, has purposely taken specific film genres (mystery, thriller, noir, etc.) and given them a new twist. Another technique is to mix several genres and thus create something new or unexpected, like Guillermo del Toro’s «Chronos» or «Blade II», which combine horror (a vampire story) with science fiction. In this respect, «Darkness» is a Gothic film (unusual for Spanish cinema) that has elements of mystery and horror. It is not, however, a horror film in the way a US movie might be. In fact, a better comparison may be made between this film and, for instance, «The Grudge», or, better yet, «Ju-on», the original Japanese horror film on which «The Grudge» was based. Unlike them, however, «Darkness» tells a coherent story and is very subtle in how it presents the mysterious slowly (day by day, literally). I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole film, for the hints were delivered slowly, which added to my state of tension or terror. The film also has several alternative sequences which seem to have confused the spectators. One might wish to be guided by Albert Rua (Giancarlo Giannini), who tells Regina (Anna Paquin) that the Darkness will take care of things. Hence, there is one sequence of events ruled by the Darkness, and another one which is independent of it. This practice, which is not that unusual (think of «Run Lola Run», with three alternative sequences, or even «Don Juan DeMarco», with two) may prove confusing to the spectator. However, it adds to the mystery and to the interest the movie presents. I would recommend at least two viewings. Iain Glen as Mark is absolutely superb, as are Lena Olin as Maria and Giancarlo Giannini as Albert Rua. I would recommend «Darkness» to anyone wanting to watch a good, unusual, and challenging film.
