Passed the Door of Darkness: Two young children dead, floating face down in their family's bathtub. Their mother, shot in the back of the head, lies next to the tub in a pool of her own blood. On the floor slumped against a blood covered wall is her husband, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. For rookie Homicide Detective Chris Malloy this grisly scene is more than he expected to see in his first week of working the graveyard shift. For his partner, grizzled yet poetic Detective Murphy MacCasey, this is but one tragedy among countless in his fifteen years in homicide. They haven't seen anything yet.

Quite well done....actually.
13 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

I don't believe that I have ever left a review here before, but having just watched this film, and reading some of the reviews, I felt like I needed to chime in. I have to say that I was actually intrigued for the entire running time. Yes it's something of a slow-burn pot boiler, but it never seemed "slow". The pacing kept me interested in what was coming and how it was going to unfold. It kept me guessing but I was never confused as to what was going on.

As for the acting, I thought that most everybody gave excellent showings. I'm not sure where the negative reviews on performances are coming from, but everyone, especially Mark Colson, did a great job. The lead, Matthew Prater, was OK. He was at his best when doing scenes that required him to let loose and get angry, which come to think of it, was most of the time. Kathryn Avery Hansen as detective MacCasey's daughter also shined bright in this piece. James M. Connor as Stephens--again, top notch.

I have this on one of those 20 horror film collections and, while a number of the movies in there are abysmal, this one was something of standout for me. Sure it's low budget, sure the print is a little dark in some places and the audio is a bit low at times, but there is nonetheless some great talent in both storytelling and performance here. Also, the death scenes are pretty darn well edited and look quite real. If you like crime thrillers, I definitely think that Passed The Door Of Darkness is worth a viewing.
