If more horror flicks were made like this, we'd be watching them more often.
22 June 2010 | by onistbSee all my reviews

I've always been a fan of older horror movies, the kind that require some thought and the viewer to be paying attention. I'm talking black and white, early 70's, gritty stories that let the imagination fun wild instead of seeing dismembered limbs and gory nasty crap all thrown in your face. That's why I never take the time to watch them.

Enter "The Visible Dark." (I'm gonna do my best to not spoil the movie) Right from the first scenes, you're taken places that make you believe connections between events without being able to explain them. There are no obvious fixes and no easy answers. But the whole time you're wondering what the hell is going on. No one is safe, and everyone becomes suspect after a while. Also, trust and belief in people starts to diminish. You want to see the people prevail, but start to wonder if they can. Before you realize it, time is running out, and you're wondering if and when the evil will strike.

The coolest thing is that the story is addicting without the horror aspect. The scary stuff comes along and disrupts everything, which to me is even creepier. Most horror movies I just sit back and stay guarded, covering part of my eyes the whole time. I stay disconnected the whole movie, and then after I forget about it. I near cared about the subjects anyways. This movie pulls you in and then drops the ax, kidney punching you with terror whenever you've lifted your guard just a little too long.

This film leaves you effectively creeped out without being nauseous. I hope to see more like this again.
