Storyline

ART OF DARKNESS is a nail bitingly tense suspense horror set over one gruesome night. Ben (MARTIN LAURENCE) and Liz (EMILY BAXTER) are a married couple still coming to terms with Liz's recent miscarriage. Too distraught in the weeks after it, she quit her nursing job, and Ben is struggling to hold on to his accountancy job after a round of redundancies. Things are not that great between them right now. In a bid to make some money on the side to help out, Liz accepts a shady modeling job for Philip (RYAN ELLIOTT), an intense photographer who works from his sprawling house in the middle of nowhere. But Philip isn't what he seems... Now: Liz is trapped in the dungeon-like basement of the house, in the clutches of a murderous psychopath with artistic pretensions, and caught up in an organ-harvesting nightmare. Her only hope is Ben, the one person who believes she's in danger It's a race against time to save her, but can Ben get to Liz before she becomes Philip's next victim...? Written by Steve Laurence

A series of bad character choices somewhat mar this thriller
19 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A man and his wife are falling on hard times financially, the husband may be about to lose his job. He persuades his wife to take a modelling photo session and a private residence. Does he get the full address, of course not. She is promptly kidnapped by the photographer who keeps girls tied to tables before ,,, you can see where this is going.

A low budget British horror movie that has plenty of eye rolling moments and some minor gore. It starts slowly with some pretty dreadfully stilted dialogue before plodding on to an uninspired climax.

The main problem is the characters behave in a manner that will make your eyes roll at times, I'm loath to give examples as they would be spoilers.

I have given it four out ten basically it is not ineptly made and may may be worth a watch if you like women in peril movies without it turning into torture porn.
