  1. The thriller makes up in moody weirdness what it lacks in horror-tale originality.
  2. 30
    Though pic boasts decent perfs, potent atmospherics and eye-catching visuals, both psychology and plot are bargain-basement.
  3. Horror at Christmas might work, but tedium doesn't.
  4. Some movies should never come to light, either, and Darkness, bearing a 2002 copyright, might well have been better left on the shelf.

    Rarely has a film's tagline been more fitting: "Some secrets should never come to light."
  6. 10
    It's not even bad enough to be any fun.
  7. 0
    Eurotrash for the new millennium.

    Oh, come on, its not THAT bad. Its not good, but looking to other horror movies its acceptable. But Balagueró showed a lot more potential in [REC], no that was awesome! Expand
