    Incredible and frightening film. Not original? Well, making the darkness, the sole, pure, darkness, nor evil entities, nor monster, but only the darkness the antagonist of a story... I believe it's pretty original. I'm amazed the film had so bad critics there in USA. In Spain the critics were awesome and the film is considered as a cuIt movie.

  1. Horror at Christmas might work, but tedium doesn't.
  2. Some movies should never come to light, either, and Darkness, bearing a 2002 copyright, might well have been better left on the shelf.

    The real mystery is why such a mangled film was not junked altogether.
