    Easily one of the best horror movies 2013. It is effective and unlike most horror movies, it connects to real life. Although being extremely dark and very disturbing, at a certain level, it is entertaining although horrifying. It has "Orphan' movie feeling to it, although being better than 2009's horror hit "Orphan". Dark Touch is a well-made film, very twisted, disturbing and horrifying.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Dark Touch shows us that real horror is in us humans. It does what great horror films do, connect reality with fear. Dark, gritty movie. It shows what horrors a child abuse victim goes through, how their innocence is lost. Man is the cruelest animal. One of the best horror movies of 2013. Expand

    Dark Touch is meant to touch a nerve, not merely spook. It’s about deeper fears, and realer monsters.

    That space between reality and mirage is where Ms. de Van’s strength, and this movie’s true horror, lies.

    It's unfortunate that commercial considerations seem to play into the third act, adding a more concrete representation of a very abstract idea.
