Movie Monday - Darkness Falls
Darkness Falls (2003)
[Chaney Kley; Emma Caulfield; Lee Cormie; Grant Piro; Sullivan Stapleton; Steve Mouzakis]
Plot: When Kyle was a kid, he claimed he woke up from sleep to find the Tooth Fairy about to kill him. From then on, everyone figured him for a loony -- except his childhood sweetheart, Caitlin, and her brother, Michael. When Kyle returns to his hometown, it seems he wasn't so crazy, after all: An undefinable evil has settled in the town of Darkness Falls, and Kyle must save everyone from it.
Yeah, I wanted to like this one. Seemed like it had everything in place to be a great little horror flick.
And I just couldn't get too into it. The acting was weak, but so was the writing, or the actual plot. Just too many moments of shaking my head where I should have been jumping out of my seat. Maybe if it was remade with a tighter script or a better cast. I don't know.
Recommended for die-hard horror fans or completists, but the rest of you can find something better to do with your time.
