    Darkness falls is based on the background of an 1800 ish tale. The effects both special and sound work to create horror environment. The performace displayed by the characters works well. The movie moves fast from places and doesnt feel short because its only 85 minutes. The concept of the horror or evil is new to many horror film fans. Start-to-end it makes good on its promise.

    A pretty good movie. As if people don't EXPECT horror films to be predictable and unrealistic (there has NEVER been a horror film put out that wasn't completely unrealistic). Anyway.. the first 10 minutes were scary as hell, but it died down after that. Don't watch a horror movie and expect it to be about real life.

    Yeah the first ten minutes will scare da crap outta you and the rest is a little bit boring but still there are some scenes that will make you jump.

  1. Darkness Falls -- with a thud. But it does not go gently into the night, for director Jonathan Liebesman and his large crew cram as much style and energy as they can into a hokey and morbid supernatural thriller plot. It's a downer to see so much effort expended on such junk.
  2. A truly awful and extremely loud scareflick.
  3. Isn't satisfying or surprising. It doesn't even make sense from scene to scene.
