In need of a full-time caretaker to look after her house, an elegant and enigmatic madame hires a lonely young woman; however, this is not an ordinary place. Indeed, this silent residence is the oldest building in the city, riddled with unpleasant stories of forbidden occult practices, and terrible rumours of morbid hauntings. With such a reputation, most people would turn down the madame's lucrative offer; nevertheless, this lovely caretaker is up to the task, even though, right from the start, peculiar occurrences and blood-curdling sounds that permeate the empty mansion's long corridors foretell an ominous fate. Under those circumstances, why is that room at the end of the hallway off-limits? Can the tormented keeper rid herself of the ever-growing voices inside her head?Written by
No, i-i'm telling you the truth. I am honestly one of the good ones. Look, i'm waiting for my friends at the bar. Ask them! I would never in a million years just go home with someone i just met, who invited me to their house. If i told them that... and for whiskey? They would laugh in my face!

And good thing I did so, because she only appeared for a few minutes!! For me this movie did not work, had very little to offer and if you're into such productions just watch Repulsion from 65 and have some time well spent.
Some of the scenes seemed random, maybe they had a secret meaning, and maybe my eye is untrained but it did look strange. Even the structure, going so fast for the climax and then taking its time to end and trying to offer some closure or what exactly? I mean you are left with a little over half of hour of..explaining the broken mind?
Anyway, all in all, it is not something to recommend, from my point of view, with so many other good ones out there, leave Darling for a lonely and curious night at most, when you want to see what the fuss is about, cause it will bore you and leave you completely unsatisfied.
