Goofs

About 40 minutes in, there's a scene in which the Baconator 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 the Baconator looks out, has the door knob/lock hardware. That door can't close shut or lock. See more »

It is deja vu all over again....
28 May 2016 | by mauro volvoxSee all my reviews

I do not understand why Hollywood still makes films like "The Darkness"...

It is always the same thing. There is nothing new, no creativity. They change one or two elements on the script but in the end it is the same type of reheated and recycled haunting story.

If they had, at least, included some gratuitous nudity or sex to make things a little more interesting or less soporific the film could be watchable.

As it is, The Darkness is boring as it can possibly be, without any scares, and in the final act, the introduction of the healers and their magic feather is painfully ridiculous.

I wonder what forced Kevin Bacon to star in such drivel....
