DARK WAS THE NIGHT (Theatrical Release USA 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

Dark Was the Night
enters the realm of the improbable as far too many animals and humans go missing before real action is taken to solve the problem. The monster is ‘cool’ with its three-cloven hoof tracks, but overall the movie just doesn’t ‘cut it’. It seems Directors and Producers think putting someone like Lukas Haas in the film is going to pull a low B-grade film into a higher classification. It’s a pleasure to see Kevin Durand on screen.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. While there’s always interest in a new menace in the woods, this isn’t the best movie out there to get thrills and chills from the unknown.
