Creepy Entertainment
2 November 2004 | by thisisthepointSee all my reviews

Dark Heaven is an excellent example of a film that entertains by taking its audience on a creepy journey. A ghost house filled with crucifixes and dark angellic beings. The goal isn't to frighten us but to unsettle you. And, it works! Douglas Schulze's use of "spiritual subject matter" was an excellent choice through which to tell his modern day "creepfest". Why? Because it is still relatively unexplored territoryo. Sure you have "The Exorcist", "The Omen" and a few rather silly evangelical flicks like "Left Behind" but these films tend to emphasize demonic possession a topic that has become very cliché. DARK HEAVEN follows a man who has lost his spiritual faith (nothing cinematic ally new there) but it's the story that follows that is so compelling and interesting - no apparent demonic possession here. A man who is a "good man" but has come to question his faith. Much like that old short story "YOUNG GOODMAN BROWN" (check it out, you'll get many of your answers there). I don't think that this film was ever meant to be "The Omen". I think that it is exactly what it set out to be, "creepy entertainment". Obviously the film has/is succeeding. I have read that a DARK HEAVEN 2 is coming and am eager to see it. Bravo filmmaker Douglas Schulze. I GET THE POINT AND I WAS ENTERTAINED.
