Dark House (2014) Review

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Dark House (2014)

Written by: Victor Salva, Charles Agron

Directed by: Victor Salva

Cast: Luke Keintank (Nick De Santo), Alex McKenna (Eve), Anthony Rey Perez (Ryan), Zack Ward (Chris McCulluch), Lacey Anzelc (Lilith), Lesley- Anne Down (Lillian), Tobin Bell (Seth)

Sometimes names affiliated with a film that have cut a legendary niche for themselves in other pictures can be a telltale sign of a mediocre film. After “The Devil’s Rejects”, Sid Haig and Ken Foree were everywhere, with some films not becoming of their legendary status. So I always take famous names in obscure films with a cautionary grain of salt. “Dark House” has Tobin Bell from “Saw”, elegant Lesley-Ann Down, and is helmed by Victor Salva of “Jeepers Creepers” fame. This could be a small scale project of exceptional quality and potential that the famous people that are in it believe in, or »

Nothing Good's Hiding In "Dark House"

29 March 2014 9:44 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

How am I the only one who thinks this is a bad idea?

There's a pretty good movie that you've probably heard of called The Dead Zone (1983).  It was a movie from David Cronenberg based on a Stephen King book where a man could see someone's future just by touching them.  This lead the character on a battle against fate.  Dark House (2014) is about Nick Di Santo (Luke Kleintank) who touches people and knows how they will die (if it's gruesome enough).  After his lunatic mother dies, Nick is bequeathed a house, a house he's been drawing all of his life.  So, with his subtly named pregnant girlfriend Eve (Alex McKenna) and buddy Ryan (Anthony Rey Perez), Nick goes in search of his ancestral home.  Once they get in the neighborhood, they run in to Scut Farkus (Zack Ward)--who has changed his name to Chris and become a geological »

Exclusive: Tobin Bell Talks Dark House and More!

14 March 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The director of the Jeepers Creepers franchise, Victor Salva, has teamed up with Saw's Tobin Bell for Dark House, a tale about a father who travels to a seemingly abandoned mansion in order to learn about his son’s dark psychic gifts.

Instead, Bell’s character, Seth, a mysterious woodsman, leaves them wrapped up in a journey about the true nature of fate.

Tobin Bell was kind enough to speak with us about his long and fascinating career and why he was drawn to the themes found inside the Dark House.

DC: I know you’ve been interviewed quite a bit in the past by guys like me about your experiences in the horror genre, but I would love to talk about your entire career and your time in New York. How did you first get your start in the business?

TB: Alan Parker hired me to do Mississippi Burning »

Dark House Is One Nutty Horror Movie

11 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Dark House is one nutty horror movie, but what's crazier still is how well it works — until it doesn't.

Nick (an excellent Luke Kleintank), 23, has a psychic power that gives him visions of how certain people will die. Desperate to understand its source, Nick begins an ancestral search that leads him, with his best friend (Anthony Rey Perez) and very pregnant girlfriend (Alex McKenna) in tow, to the deep woods of Mississippi, and a deserted gothic mansion guarded by hunched-over, stringy-haired, ax-wielding ghosts.

The house, by the way, may exist in an alternate dimension, and there appears to be a monster in the walls. Writer-director Victor Salva (Powder, Jeepers Creepers) and his co-writer, newcomer Charles Agron, throw in more plot point »

‘Dark House’ Review

11 March 2014 3:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Luke Kleintank, Tobin Bell, Alex McKenna, Anthony Rey Perez, Zack Ward, Lacey Anzelc, Ethan S. Smith, Lesley-Anne Down, Charles Agron, Daniel Ross Owens, Max Gail, Patricia Belcher | Written by Victor Salva, Charles Agron | Directed by Victor Salva

As a fan of the Jeepers Creepers movies I’m always interested in what Victor Salva will come up with next, and this can be a good and bad thing.  Dark House is his latest movie which he directs and co-wrote the screenplay for and I have to admit that it is an interesting film, if you are a fan of Supernatural or shows like it that focus on a fairly lightweight battle between good and evil.  With Tobin Bell starring, Dark House is also is likely to pull in some of the Saw fans too.

Nick Di Santo (Luke Kleintank) is a man with a gift, he’s able to see »

7 January 2014 9:30 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Way back in November of 2011 we told you about Haunted, a Victor Salva flick starring Saw's Tobin Bell. Years passed. Things changed. The flick has a new title, Dark House (not to be confused with the kick-ass Darin Scott film of the same name), and it's on its way home.

Bell (pictured) stars alongside Leslie-Anne Down (Rosewood Lane) and Luke Kleintank ("Bones") in his first feature role. Anthony Rey Perez (Don't Pass Me By), Alex McKenna ("90210"), Zack Ward ("In My Pocket") and Max Gail ("Barney Miller," "Gary Unmarried") co-star.

Look for it in stores on March 11, 2014.

Synopsis

When Nick Di Santo learns that his father is not only alive but can possibly reveal the origin of his son's dark gift, he sets out on a trip that takes him to an abandoned mansion he thought only existed in his childhood imagination.
