Trivia

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 »

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 »

The Darkness - Movie Review
30 May 2016 | by MattBrady099See all my reviews

If you have seen: The Amityville Horror, The Exorcist, Poltergeist, Paranormal Activity, Paranormal Activity 2, Paranormal Activity 3, Insidious, Sinister, and The Conjuring.

Then you most likely have seen "The Darkness". It's nothing new or original.

It's a lazy copy cat of better horror movies that came out in the last few years- With endless amount of clichés that you thought died out years ago. The acting was so awful and not convincing at all. Well, coming to think of it, Kevin Bacon is the only actor in the movie that wasn't terrible, because he is the Bacon.

The only scary thing I can say about this is that I got to see the preview of the upcoming horror film "Don't Breathe". That film looks really intense and way more scary than this.
