Reality as Perception
7 February 2017 | by jackduvallSee all my reviews

This is an underrated work of art. I was blown away by the performances, especially the lead Kate played by Whitney Able (who was also fantastic in Gareth Edward's Monsters). It's a slow burn thriller which builds to an ultimate and tragic finale. The intense emotions on display are really well done. Underneath the surface it's really a study of depression and mental illness with moments of such deep despair it reminded me at times of Lars Von Trier's Melancholia. I will say I think this movie was marketed wrong as a horror film and the poster art is misleading. Some reviews seem to be people expecting a "jump scare" horror movie which this definitely is NOT. If that is what you are expecting you will be very disappointed. But, if you are like me, and really like and seek out more art house, character driven, psychological thrillers this film really delivers. It's a film that will stick with you for awhile. Like Antonioni's Blow-Up, Dark is an atmospheric journey with more layers to it than appear on the surface.
