EITD won't be to everyone's taste, however,the extremely raw feel to the movie actually worked in a sub genre that's rapidly becoming tired and predictable.
Micro Budget movies are all the rage these days, the success though, is in the story, characters and effects that can be squeezed into the very limited finances. Most attempts fail, and fail badly, however there are occasions, such as with EITD, that what the filmmakers are trying to achieve, shines through with a production that vastly overshadows the lack of money.
Eyes in the Dark is a throwback to the mid to late 90's when films like McPherson Tapes and dare I say it, Blair Witch Project came out to shock the audiences, and above all, left people talking about them long after they had finished. Whilst EITD has content that clearly precludes the possibility of it being real, the lead up, character building and overall atmosphere all combine to make the subject matter work.
This is one of those movies, where you will either hate it, or, love it - providing you can suspend belief and do not watch it expecting to question whether it's real or not, you'll enjoy every minute.
A couple of minor criticisms are that the obligatory FBI warnings don't really add to the movie, and a couple of hammy acting scenes, however those aside, this is a very capable and stand out addition to the Found Footage genre.
