    It's the kind of movie you'd find in someone's VHS collection, decide to watch based on the box art and title, and end up switching out for "The House of the Devil" instead.

    Returning director Tim Story lays out the narrative wares with all the subtlety of a neon sign on the Strip, not that the screenplay from Keith Merryman and David A. Newman (who also co-wrote the first one) gives him much to work with.

    The film is content to merely document certain happenings and hope you find them as interesting as it does.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Michael Nordine
    Most of the film's major happenings are either illogical or, much more damningly, not especially thrilling.

    The gradual revelation that there's more to Daisy than meets the eye is no great surprise, but it does at least negate — too late! — some of the more troubling subtext.

    So far removed from any original signal — there are several direct references to Titanic, so it's timely, too — this nuance-free affair registers as little more than noise.

    An extended riff on marital infidelity, this is the rare omnibus film that isn't just a mixed bag -- it very nearly succeeds at being uniformly bad.

    Co-writer/director Jonathan English ups the viscera and nudity at the expense of a compelling narrative, which was hardly the original’s strong suit (if indeed it had one) anyway.

    • 25 Michael Nordine
    A Dark Truth is one of those unfortunate projects whose component parts are immediately at odds with one another.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 12 Michael Nordine
    To question where things went wrong feels somehow strange, as the project seems to have been ill-conceived from the very start.
