Ten stories are woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only to terrorize unsuspecting residents.
A pair of mischievous high school kids create the illusion of a haunting on an unsuspecting elderly neighbor while keeping his every reaction under surveillance. A series of coincidences leads to tragedy.
Unaware of its terrible history, a young couple purchases their dream home. But it soon becomes clear that they may not be alone in the house... and that someone -- or something -- is determined to drive them out.
'The Axe Murders of Villisca' is a ghost story based on the house where the notorious and still unsolved 1912 axe murders took place. Three outcast teenagers break into the house in search of answers, but discover something far beyond their worst fears.

Dark Summer was pretty entertaining. They acting was pretty good, particularly from Stella Maeve. She did an excellent job and was very believable. I see a bright future ahead for her.
This movie was pretty dark, but it's not going to scare the crap out of you. You'll be able to sleep later that night. It's not going to change your life or make you introspective about anything. But if the baseline for a movie is to be entertaining and justify the money you paid for it, then in my case it was a 7 bucks well spent. The story line moved along at a decent pace, there weren't any glaring plot holes from what I can remember and it was overall a fun watch. I'm usually pretty good at seeing the twist before it hits, this one has a double twist and I didn't see either.
In short, it's worth the watch. 7 out of 10 with a bullet.
