Movie Review by Mike ‘The Movie Guy’ | ‘The Darkness’ : Never Take Things That Don’t Belong to You!

The Darkness

From the Producers of The Purge and Insidious comes THE DARKNESS…

A family returns from a Grand Canyon vacation, haunted by an ancient supernatural entity they unknowingly awakened and engages them in a fight for their survival. The Darkness is directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) and stars Kevin Bacon and David Mazouz (Gotham).

So, what did I think of THE DARKNESS?

OK…before I tell you – – I gotta share my freaky story.

So I watched this late last night – – like around 12:30 – – right in the middle of the movie – – when everything starts getting crazy – – all of sudden – on my 2 yr old’s baby monitor – I start to hear him talk. Crazy. I know. Question is…

Was he dreaming OR was he talking to ‘something’ or ‘someone?’ I guess I’ll never know – unless it happens again tonight. (lol)

OK, OK. Enough of that. What did I think of THE DARKNESS?

I like it. It was actually better than I expected. I’m always on the fence when it comes to supernatural PG-13 movies.

I thought the cast did a great job. Kevin Bacon (dad) was cool. Radha Mitchell (mom) was cool. Lucy Fry (daughter) was really cool. She had some intense moments – – very believable. David Mazouz (son) was really cool as well. This kid’s got some acting chops. It’s crazy to see how sophisticated he is as Bruce Wayne on Gotham – – – but in this – – he did good.

I thought the special effects were dope.

I thought the story of the ‘ancient demons’ were pretty sweet.

I thought the movie had some jumpy moments here and there…but nothing really scary.

I think THE DARKNESS is worth the watch – especially if you’re into movie like this.

Oh – – on the Blu-ray + Digital HD copy I got – – on the front cover it says: INCLUDES SHOCKING ALTERNATE ENDING!

I watched it…and personally…I’m SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad they didn’t go with that ending instead. Yeah. I wasn’t a fan. (lol)

I give THE DARKNESS…3 out of 5 popcorns!
