  • The Darkness

    After a camping trip to the Grand Canyon, Peter Taylor (Kevin Bacon) and his wife, Bronny (Radha Mitchell), notice that their autistic son Michael (David Mazouz) is acting strange and has a new imaginary friend. They begin to find mysterious black handprints all over their house and this new presence seems to bring out the worst in everyone in the family. But can the Taylors banish the ancient dark spirits before they tear the family apart?

    ClearPlay In Action!

    Most of this film deals with something they call an “ancient evil,” which can’t really be edited out, but it never crosses into the realm of satanic. This movie also has a scene with a husband and wife kissing in bed, though they get interrupted before anything else happens. Finally, there is one F-word near the end, along with a bunch of scattered profanities throughout the film.

    So Is There a Bright Side to The Darkness?

    The Darkness is a very scary movie…to anyone who hasn’t seen a horror movie before. This is a paint-by-numbers horror flick, complete with the insightful kid, the believing mother, the skeptical father, and even an ancient Native American burial ground. The plot was completely predictable, the acting was wooden and the scares aren’t that scary. This is a lazy horror film.

    Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, some disturbing violence, brief sensuality and language; 92 mins; Directed by Greg McLeane
