Michael returns home from military school to find his mother happily in love and living with her new boyfriend. As the two men get to know each other, he becomes more and more suspicious of the man who is always there with a helpful hand.
A remake of the 1970's British thriller of the same name. The original is set in France and has two British females as the leads, whereas the remake is set in Argentina and has two American females as the leads. See more »
During the scene, when Ellie and Stephanie are first drinking in the bar, the two young Argentinian men buy the girls a shot each. Stephanie is shown drinking almost all of her shot, however on the next shot she still has a full shot glass and is preparing herself to drink it. See more »

Extremely disappointing remake of Robert Fuest's cult suspense film.
"And Soon the Darkness" tells the story of two American girls on bicycle trip in Argentina who fall prey to a sinister captor.One of them suddenly vanishes and the other one must find her friend before it's too late.I am a big fan of extremely chilling Robert Fuest's original set in sunny France and this unneeded remake is nowhere nearly as suspenseful.In fact it's very dull with one-dimensional characters and the lack of surprises.The banality of the plot is simply overwhelming.Admittedly the scenic scenery of Argentinian countryside looks beautiful and desolate.The ruins of a town that flooded years ago and was abandoned provide some spooky atmosphere.Unfortunately the majority of the film is tedious and annoying.5 out of 10.Watch creepy British original instead.
