Storyline

Darken is set in a bizarre, mysterious, and violent unknown world with danger and death around every corner. After a young woman is accosted by a dying warrior in the middle of the street, a bizarre incantation propels her into the realm of Darken - a violent prison-like world of labyrinthine rooms, interconnected with no apparent rhyme or reason and no way of escape. As she fights for survival within this brutal place, she finds allies who are rebelling against the rule of a self-appointed religious despot who demands allegiance to an all-powerful god called "Mother Darken." Eve and her allies must fight with everything they have if they are to have any hope of surviving the horrors Darken has in store for them.

Terrible, terrible, terrible...
22 April 2020 | by omendataSee all my reviews

This film is...Terrible! Did I mention the word terrible, well lets see - A totally non-sensical story, a single set that looks like a warehouse in some abandoned lot in Detroit, acting of the worst level of student 1st year am-dram, inappropriate sound effects and mixing and well its a bit boring too. Looks like they spent most of the budget in the last 5 minutes too; if they had the budget to keep that level of scifi going it might have worked out but sorry guys its pants!

In short, one of those movies you start to watch and within the first 1 minute you know its going to be a complete howler monkey!
