Multi-personality and psychopathy.
8 January 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Force of Darkness" tells the story of a serial killer played by Mel Novak,who suffers from multi-personality disorder.He is possessed by some demon and goes on a killing spree."Force of Darkness" is a rare and difficult to find horror film which predates Robert Resnikoff's action packed "The First Power".However I must say that "Force of Darkness" does what it seems to set out to do quite well.It entertains the viewer.The action keeps moving the story along at a good pace.There are some effective jump scares and one or two rather creepy stalking scenes.The movie would be improved dramatically if more care was put into the atmosphere,but it's still a decent and gloomy crime/procedural/supernatural horror with strong religious and spiritual overtones.6 out of 10.
