Peter and Bronny Taylor go on a trip to the Grand Canyon with their daughter, Stephanie, and Mikey, their autistic son. Mikey discovers a small cavern, where he finds rocks with glyphs on them. He takes the rocks, keeping a secret untold. When the Taylors return home, strange things begin to happen..
There's a scene where the dad opens up an e-mail from the mom, with a YouTube-looking link (watch?v=FDhoqY1grJY). If you paste that video ID to YouTube, it redirects to The Darkness (2016) trailer. See more »
About 40 minutes in, there's a scene in which Kevin Bacon's character closes the garage door after it mysteriously opens, then sees the French doors open. He walks up to close it and you notice, the closed door of the two has no holes for the lock and knob to go into. But the open door, as Bacon's character looks out, has the door knob/lock hardware. That door can't close shut or lock. See more »

I did not like this at all!
So this kid with Autism is more accessible to the preternatural and disturbs evil native American spirits that decide to disturb him and his family back.
It Reminds me of Stir of Echoes, which also star Keven Bacon, but is nowhere near as good as that movie. in comparison, Stir of Echoes looks like The Exorcist when standing right next to The Darkness.
The story had potential. Some evil native American spirits get their resting place disturbed, by some white folks (shocker), so in return, these spirits decide to unlock these guys inner most demons (mom's an alcoholic, the daughter is bulimic) to split up the family and drive them all crazy.
It was a brilliant idea, but it was done so corny. Even seasoned actor Keven Bacon looked cheesy delivering simple lines and trying to be serious as he reacted to the ghost.
It was a very sad display of what could have been gold. I don't know what went wrong, but I know this: Don't wast your time.
