Storyline

For Rose, who's 12 years old, things go bump in the night: are they real or a dream, benign or evil? After a halfhearted attempt to find a babysitter, Rachel and Paul go off to a party leaving Rose in her own care in a remote and rambling old house. She goes to bed after checking house and garden with her flashlight and not succeeding in finding her pet. When the front door bangs shut a couple of times and she hears footsteps, Rose grabs her hockey stick and hides in the closet. Someone is definitely in the house. Rose times her leap from the closet and the swing of her stick perfectly: pow! Has she saved herself? Or does fate have more in store? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

halfling
28 October 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Having some free time on my hands I decided to watch some short films on Atomfilms. "Darkling" is about a 12 year old girl who is left alone in her house by her parents who are going to a party. Soon fear gets the best of her and before you know it she's hiding in the closet with her trusty hockey stick. The acting by both the parents are pretty bad, and at 16 minutes it plays out a tad too long, but it's enjoyable enough I guess. Just don't expect anything stellar and I guess you'll like it *shrugs* It didn't leave an impression on me one way or the other. Strictly middle of the road.

My Grade: C-
