Hermann, a failed sculptor, is about to kill himself when he finds a strange, talking hole in the wall. The creature in the hole (Denise Poirier, the voice of ÆON FLUX) has the power to fulfill his wildest dreams, but things go horribly wrong and when the killing starts, Hermann is thrust into the worst nightmare of his life. Deep Dark is a twisted tale warning you to be careful what you wish for, because it just might get you.Written by

You do have to wonder if this movie stemmed from a bet over whether or not you could make a good horror movie out of a 'killer glory hole'. The answer is; yes, but only if you completely change the concept and keep things vague enough for it not to become completely obsurd.
This lack of comedy and over the top-ness could be levelled as a criticism as well though. Despite the concept the film is mostly played very seriously, maybe this was for the best but then again some laughs wouldn't have gone amiss.
Overall this is a serviceable story about a struggling artist, but it relies a little too much on the out there concept getting it by and in the end the actual story comes across as a little shallow. Perfectly watchable if you like low budget horrors about downwards spirals though.
