There's enough that's familiar about Darkness... to keep you watching, and there are some genuinely scary bits.

There's not an element of the film that isn't recycled, but it moves along briskly enough, and a few of the scare scenes work.

Mostly, it's about things going bump in the night that are never explained. Or when they are explained, they make no sense.

Should whet the whistle of any J-horror fan waiting for 2005's The Amityville Horror to reach DVD. Sigh.
