A vengeful spirit has taken the form of the Tooth Fairy to exact vengeance on the town that lynched her 150 years earlier. Her only opposition is the only child, now grown up, who has survived her before.
Emma Caulfield Ford,
There's something in this house... Something ancient and dark that remains still, hidden and silent. It can only wait, having been concealed in the shadows for years. In fact, its milieu is darkness. Only in it can it show itself and move. It even takes its name: DARKNESS. It's lived here since someone tried to call it, more than forty years ago. Because this house hides a secret, a terrible past, an inconceivably evil act... Seven children, faceless people, a circle that must be completed. And blood, lots of blood...Written by
Darkness is a bad horror movie with a few scares and a lot of yawns. A family moves into an old house in the country, but the daughter Regina (Anna Paquin) discovers a horrifying secret that comes out at nighttime and learns that the house used to be the site of a sacrificial ritual gone wrong. The plot sounds scary and even though its not original they could have still tried a little harder. The cast is pretty good with the best being Anna Paquin and Lena Olin. They both do a pretty good job but their performances can't save the movie. The script has a lot of holes in it and the film just leaves the audience in the dark. The film runs for 102 minutes but it feels a lot longer and it was really boring at some scenes. Jaume Balagueró should have done a better job as Darkness had a lot of potential to be scary. The ending was also pretty bad and didn't really make a lot of sense. This may be one of the worst movies I have ever seen at a theater and certainly one of the worst horror movies I have ever seen. I understand that this movie was edited so it could earn a PG-13 rating but Miramax should have just stuck with the "R" even if it would have done worse at the box office. Rating 3/10, I recommend you wait until the DVD comes out so you can enjoy it more and maybe the deleted scenes will help you understand the story better.
