Storyline

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 Anonymous

Don't waste your money
30 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie seemed to have no point whatsoever. There was never a good explanation for why things happened. I would definitely not recommend this movie. It started off OK, but then got worse. Things that happened to the characters didn't make sense and an explanation was never given. I wouldn't suggest wasting your money even to rent it!

They attempt to make it seem scary in the previews by showing children hidden in the dark. There was no point in the movie where i was actually scared. The few parts where you were supposed to be scared had no explanation to go along with them so I was left more confused than afraid. It was a major disappointment.
