This little paranormal thriller holds a certain train-wreck charm,
3 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This failed pilot by TV horror master Dan Curtis is a testament to bad television production standards: shaky, out-of-focus camera-work, dialogue drowned out by deafening incidental music, cameraman shadows moving across floors, production crew voices heard in the background. It's not Curtis's best work. Still, this little paranormal thriller holds, for me at least, a certain train-wreck charm. The sets, the performances, the music are stereotypical of the "old dark house" movies that Hollywood had been cranking out for years--right down to the organ playing Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. I love the external shots of the mansion. The horror-nostalgic interior sets are beautifully realized. And the ancient Egyptian coffin, made of plywood and sporting modern-day metal hinges, is a touch worthy of MST3K comment. For me as well as other Generation Xers, A Darkness at Blaisedon is an exercise in sentimentalism, for it typifies the kind of non-scary TV horror we grew up watching.
