**When the ancient spirits set loose.**
Usually horror films are the most clichéd genre, especially when it comes to those scaring parts, all the films use the same sudden sound effects and disfigured human images with the strong makeup or the graphics. This film is nothing less than any of those, but a bit too much in the first three quarters. Like they are keeping some suspense, but it was just dragging to extend the film length and what comes in the final quarter is actually the story with a twist. So when that revelation happens, you would probably lose complete interest on this. Because that’s not the demons you’re expecting after all the hype was created in the earlier segment.
The story was just okay, but it was well known to us in different forms from the different films. In this, it is set in a different location with different cast, so that makes the film is fresh, but it wasn’t. Some ancient spirits were set loose when a family was picnicking and it follows them to their house. Now they suffer from some unexplainable events and they decide to get rid bringing the people who can. That leads to the final act where the story comes to end.
They say it was inspired by the real event involving a family. So that might interest some viewers to check it out. But if you’re an atheist, this is just a joke. From the director of ‘Wolf Creek’ with the decent performances by Kevin Bacon and Radha Mictchell, the film did not become best among its theme. Just a watchable film, after that you won’t going to remember it a week or a month later. Very few might like it, but it’s impossible to say who they’re, so I’m not going to suggest or reject it.
I think I was over-prepared to hate this based on the reviews, because though I will come right up and say that _The Darkness_ truly isn’t very good, I actually had a fine time watching it. I won’t go back to it, but I didn’t have a particularly negative time here. I do wonder if may Greg McLean should stick to Australian stuff though, when you compare the quality of this and _Jungle_ to both _Wolf Creek_ movies and _Rogue_.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
Nice idea, should have been so much better.
After watching The Darkness I’d have to place it in the family entertainment bracket as opposed to horror, it lacks any kind of threat at all, it makes The Hole loook like a horror. I really loved the idea, a nice clever twist on the usual formula, and nice to see an autiaaut kid centre stage. The idea was good,but the realisation was a disappointment to say the least, the scares were lazy, unoriginal, but worst of all, it lacked any tension of any kind. It wasn’t bad, it’s what I’d class a back room film, it was on while I did other things. Well acted, but this is Kevin Bacon, he deserves better then this. 5/10
Moderately entertaining Poltergeist knock off with an American Indian mythology twist
The Darkness is, in my opinion, a pretty obvious Poltergeist knock off, with an American Indian mythology twist.
This film follows much the same formula made famous by Poltergeist. It makes a few distinctions, by drawing on American Indian mythology but beyond that, its business as usual.
That said, this film is in no way as creepy or frightening, as Poltergeist. The demons, look more like a bunch of bad extras from a cultural festival. Their evil is not really all that evil either. They feel more like bad tenants or squatters, who have personal hygiene issues. Hand washing in particular, is not their thing.
That said, in fairness this is not a bad film. Its moderately entertaining and it has a good cast, including Kevin Bacon, who I have a lot of time for. His performance helps lift this film and is complimented by a capable cast who generally share good chemistry.The family dynamic, in particular, is very believable in a middle aged, kind of yuppie-ish way.
I give The Darkness a six out of ten. Its not exceptional but it is still quite watchable.
