Decent Made for TV thriller with slasher elements
20 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie on TV many years ago and I remember finding it very good and quite enjoyable, especially for a daytime movie thriller and the fact that it featured two stars which I liked at the time very much Tatyana Ali from TV's (Fresh Prince Of L.A.) and Jonathan Brandis (Sea Quest DSV & IT). So I was very keen to watch it.

The plot = A young music student named Sharon McKay quickly makes friends with a group of rich kids but when she turns down one of the boy's advances and he dies, his sister Ann blames Sharon for his death and therefore sets out to destroy her.

Right firstly I have never read the book but I must say that this movie is very good indeed, and the characters are played well and acted well too, and the twists and turns throughout this movie are pulled off neatly and it did have some surprises in store as well. The whole fake death murder plot by Ann was very cunning and very believable, and I had no idea as to what or how it was gonna turn out, from the opening scene with Ann falling off the cliff and Sharon crying while being arrested was very gripping viewing, and there are even a few slasher elements thrown in, like the stalk scenes with Sharon at her house being watched by someone of POV shot was quite eerie and very creepy and when Sharon goes to investigate about what really happened to Ann after she disappeared kept me on the edge of my seat and I was hooked all the way through, and even the final girl chase scene towards the end was very well handled and quite tense and came to a compelling climax and plus there are even a few deaths thrown in as well, which definitely made the whole plot more interesting and I would have loved more but it's not that kind of movie.

The performances are very good in this movie Tatyana Ali who played the female lead Sharon was very good and I felt for her as to what her character went through throughout this movie, I also remember Tatyana was quite big at the time, I remember she was a singer and starred in another decent slasher I liked "The Clown At Midnight" but then she kinda disappeared which is a shame. The late Jonathan Brandis was the breakout performance in this movie in my opinion, his shy and withdrawn and not so confident character made him very convincing, and especially towards the end where he showed his true colours was very good, it's a sad shame that he will never be seen in any movies ever again, such a sad and tragic loss, he should have been the star he was born to be. Charlotte Ross as the Ann was another very interesting character I loved her scheming and although she bowed out a bit too soon, she was still great and fun to watch.

All in all "Fall Into Darkness" is a very good watch and definitely for fans of a good thriller and some good performances to be thrown in and definitely worth tracking down.
