The success of "The Ring" started the trend and "The Dark" falls in the same category.
The last 30-minutes of the movie (switching between the worlds part) is sadly chaotic. Audience who read the book can perhaps get the plot but otherwise, you end up walking out the cinema hall in a confused state of mind.
Sean Bean & Maurice Roëves are good in terms of performance and so are the two girls (Sophie Stuckey & Abigail Stone). Mairo Bello delivers a below average performance (miscast perhaps?).
Wales is beautiful and the scenic beauty is captured very well.
Music is average.
BTW:: I thought the movie is based on the VG "Alone In The Dark"
