THE DARKNESS Review: Never Take Things That Don't Belong to You

1:28 AM

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!
