the-darkness-movieA scary movie is a scary movie, and we have learned that there is a lot of difference between them. What scares many, does not scare all, for instance Poltergeist.  Another is Saw and it’s minions which was mainly a blood fest, the scare part is, if it were you. One that really bothered me was the chop shop flick with Mike Myers playing a dead guy come to life. Why is it what when teens and preteens are having fun someone has to chop them up?

I guess if it sells. Another group of movies I did not understand was The Amityville Horror. To me it was dribble but you may have liked it a lot. Jurassic Park scared me more than most these movies did, of course I do not believe in ghosts so that may qualify me as being a skeptic when it comes to horror movies. Others are just blood baths, yes they might be scary but after all death is always scary.

Of course add the funny horror movies to that such as Arachnophobia, and the many other types of horror movies and you have something for everyone. Which brings me to my type of scare/horror movie. The Darkness falls into that category. Oh it will make you jump, and there is suspense, but it is about a family breaking up (Krampus comes to mind) The difference here is that The Darkness has big name actors in it, which in itself keeps it off the B movie rating it included Kevin Bacon, Radha Mitchell, David Mazouz, and Lucy Fry. They all played their parts well, but understand one thing, David Mazouz was the star, and shine he did. David has a great voice I am not sure why they cast him in Touch and movies like this where he plays an autistic boy.

You will all see good and bad in this film, what I really liked was the truth aspect of it, that you do not see in many movies in the last forty years. I give this movie a 4 out of 5 rating. Enjoy.

6 Thoughts on “Remmy’s Review of The Darkness w/Trailer

    This trailer is much better at explaining the background of the movie than the one that I’ve seen on TV. I am not much of a horror fan but I did like “Arachnophobia” since this film was mentioned. The last horror film that I went to the theater to see was “The Exorcist” so I guess I’m a bit behind on this genre.
    As was stated, it does help to have “name stars” in a movie like this. The reason I say that is because known stars are less likely to bother being seen in crummy movies. I would like to see this movie should the opportunity presents itself.

    Now I know why I don’t particularly like watching scary movies. From the movies you mention, Arachnophobia is one that scared me mainly as I don’t like spiders but otherwise no issues. This one reminded me a lot of The Babadook which is not one to watch before you go to bed and the trailer of this scared me like that one did.
    I would like to say I won’t watch it, but the story makes me want to. Work that one out !

      I have to point out that you were over 21 when I finally got you to watch Arachnophobia, because it was a fun movie but you didn’t like spiders. So sad.
      😛 You wouldn’t watch it with me when we were little!

    I finally watched it and have to say that it was scary but not in the way I was expecting. Yes it made me jump in parts and the overall story was good but it wasn’t one that would give me nightmares (I hope!).
