Decent monster-in-the woods horror film with echoes of "JAWS"
14 December 2014 | by (fairview, nj) – See all my reviews

DARK WAS THE NIGHT (2014) *** Kevin Durand, Bianca Kajilch, Lukas Haas, Nick Damici, Sabina Gadecki, Steve Agee, Heath Freeman, Ethan Khusidman. Decent monster-in-the woods horror film with echoes of "JAWS" : grieving family man and small-town sheriff Durand (excellent and low-key to full tilt) discovers some strange occurrences amidst the populace's environs when a local legend may actually have ballast. Filmmaker Jack Heller shrewdly shows glimpses of the creature here and there with a few genuine jolts and scare tactics with economy yet never cheating the audience with a genuine hero to root for thanks to Tyler Hisel's slow-and-steady-wins-the-race script that reads like old school John Carpenter by its showdown climax that leaves one final chill to ponder.
