Dull TV mystery
3 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

FALL INTO DARKNESS is one of those dull TV movies that they seemed to constantly churn out during the 1990s. This one has the distinction of being based on a novel by author Christopher Pike, although the cover of my DVD bizarrely proclaims it to be a true story. The story is just ridiculous enough for it to possibly be true.

The main cast are a group of annoying teenagers who are joined by a newcomer, THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR's Tatyana M. Ali, who spurns the advances of one of the members. When the guy later kills himself, his vengeful sister decides to bring Ali's character down by faking her own death through a convoluted plot and blaming Ali for the crime.

The story is as silly as it sounds, and there are further twists (including an extra villain) which stretch the viewer's credulity even further. The film as a whole is badly directed and one sequence in which a character falls from a cliff top is laughably awful. With so many cliff-climbing sequences you'd think this would at least look good but it looks like what it is, cheap. Tatyana M. Ali is okay as the lead, as is Jonathan Brandis (from the SEAQUEST DSV show), but the rest of the cast - particularly Charlotte Ross - are very poor.
