Five years after an unexplained malfunction causes the death of 15 tour-goers and staff on the opening night of a Halloween haunted house tour, a documentary crew travels back to the scene of the tragedy to find out what really happened.
"Darkest Night" has its roots in horror styles and moods from many eastern and western traditions. Filmed in a "found video and documentary" style, "Darkest Night" depicts a family holiday reunion at an isolated home in the Sagada Mountains. The family's celebration is shattered by bizarre, supernatural and tragic terrors no one can explain. This film is a psychological horror story with intense family drama, suspense, action and shock.Written by
Approaching this film with the doubts I've come to view almost all "found footage" horror films, I was truly amazed with this entry. With the exception of the Paranormal Activity 3 and 4, all the found footage movies I've seen in the past year or two have been awful. But this film is different. Even though the directing is about what you'd expect in found footage stuff (actually a little better than PA), the writing and acting are awesome. After a brief section introducing the family members and friends in the story (with some nice humor), then the action really rolls! Once things get moving, there's hardly a stop to catch your breath from then till the end. Just the ending in itself will leave you breathless. The characters are well made and acted, so you really do care about them and care what happens to them. Every family has its "skeletons" in the closet, so if you come from the average family, you can relate to the characters here. If you see any found footage horror films in the next 12 months, make sure it's Paranormal Activity 4 (and 5?) plus this movie!
