POV in the Mountains
22 January 2011 | by (Oakville, Ontario) – See all my reviews

In Bjorn Anderson's Eyes in the Dark, recovered video files discovered by the F.B.I. showcase the perilous story of a group of college students who while on a trip in a remote cabin, come face-to-face with a mountain legend that brings evil and ultimate death to all those it meets.

Shot in POV (or as some like to call it, Blair Witch-style), Eyes in the Dark effectively uses the dark and the terrifying idea of eyes staring back at you from the black abyss to develop a story told through multiple media devices.

The results are every bit as scary as they are uneven. The scary does eventually befall those patient enough to wait out the set-up. There are creatures in them there hills and their wolf-like howls are just as terrifying as their red glowing eyes.

Shot on an estimated budget of $100,000 (source: IMDb.com), Anderson uses his limited balance wisely and keeps the reveal of the creatures until the final reels. Even with their identity shown to the audience, the camera angles are such that long detailed views are impossible. This can either work effectively (see Cloverfield) or can be utterly annoying and Eyes in the Dark walks the thin line between both.

Unfortunately, the film is dragged down by some of the inferior acting of the small ensemble. Wayne Bastrup and Paul Eenhoorn stand out in their individual performances but the remaining cast seem at times uninterested in Bjorn's script or at the very least, unsure of how to deliver their lines. And a sub-plot storyline about jealousy amongst the young college co-eds just doesn't seem to resonate as anything of importance.

Eyes in the Dark has played on the festival circuit with stops at Stiff 2010, Killer Film Fest, Local Sightings Film Festival and as an official selection at the 2010 Fright Night Film Fest.
