Art House Paranormal Thriller
18 January 2017 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I watched Arise from Darkness formally known as 'When my Eyes go Dark' at the world premier (Film Invasion Los Angeles in August). There was much mystique going into the film -- knowing the story behind the screenplay is actually based on real events and the voices in movie were retrieved from exorcisms performed by the Archdiocese of Detroit. The re branding seems a little commercialized for my taste and perhaps they felt it was necessarily since they now released the film mainstream - maybe they thought better to not stay contained as an independent art house fashionista film.

Nevertheless, the film delivers as highly original with great performances and much distraught. I suggest doing some background on the actual story based on the movie before you watch the film, it will indeed prep you and make you even more interested then you were before. For some of you who don't like art house films or get bored by experimental-ism do yourself a favor and look into the movie before hand. It's hard to imagine anyone would have made a better movie with the resources available to them. Kudos to screenplay writer and actor Zachary Laoutides.
