Good old-fashioned fun
4 November 2009 | by jaymSee all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect when I began watching this and was a little unsure for the first fifteen minutes or so. But then I relaxed into it and went along for the ride. I'm glad I did. Dark Rising is a fun little movie- sure the effects are on the cheap side but by sticking to proper FX for the most part instead of CGI they work. It also helps that the bare-bones plot keeps moving along and that the main actors in the cast are more than adequate. Unlike your average low budget production these guys and gals can act- and while no Oscars are going to be handed out any time soon, their personalities carry the film along. There's something likable about all the main figures. If I were in the horror film business I wouldn't hesitate to hire any of the main cast off the back of this.

This isn't a production to be taken seriously- just sit back, relax and enjoy the show. This is just a fun film. The script is nicely paced, the direction is better than average for this kind of movie and the cast all earned their pay-cheques. I can see this picking up a bit of a cult following. I for one will be looking out for more features from the director and main cast.

Here's hoping we do eventually get to see a sequel.
