Movie Summary

Director:
Jaume Balaguero
Released:
2005
Rating:
Not Available
Directed by Jaume Balagueró, Darkness follows father and husband Mark (Iain Glen), his wife (Lena Olin), and their two children (Anna Paquin and Stephan Enquist) on their move to an outwardly quaint country home. Though the initial housewarming party is widely celebrated by neighbors, their houseguests become steadily fewer as a series of creepy happenings indicate that the house is home to more than their family. Sure enough, the lights begin to flicker incessantly on and off, while Mark's Huntington's disease makes a comeback after a ten-year dormancy. Regina (Paquin) expects that the problem stems from the house itself, but no one believes her. Determined to prove her case (particularly after mysterious noose marks begin to appear on her brother's neck), Regina decides to pay a visit to the man (Fermi Rexach) who built the house to begin with.

Metacritic Score

  • 30

    Variety Jonathan Holland

    Though pic boasts decent perfs, potent atmospherics and eye-catching visuals, both psychology and plot are bargain-basement.

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    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.
