A competent if unremarkable low-budgeter.

Hard-core horror hounds may be disappointed, but those with a taste for more traditional horror will find a few enjoyable moments...

Phedon Papamichael's third foray into directing is little more than another hackneyed horror film.

it begins with a suicide, ends with a vision of the apocalypse, and has enough ideas in its supernatural storyline to get any viewer reflecting.

Audience Reviews for From Within

From the 8 Films to Die For 2009 Collection, This is the first film in that collection I have watched, If you haven't watched any of the After Dark Horrorfest Series I suggest you do, they just get better and better. This one was a good one to watch during this Halloween season. Its about a rash of suicides in small town USA. The story moves fast so pay attention so you don't lose who is who. The ending holds a twist so be prepared, and I am sure we will see a squeal. The acting by all was over the top. Don't think you'll lose any sleep on this one. But still worth the watch and worth every bit of 4 stars.

From Within was actually pretty freaky. It was like a combination of The Grudge, the (few) good parts of The Happening, and maybe a bit of The Abandoned as well. The frightening atmosphere and sense of dread were the main things that I liked.

There was a good amount of gore and violece, and the jump moments never became annoying like they do in many horror movies. I just wish there had been at least a few halfway normal Christians to balance out all the insanely evil and violent ones that were portrayed here. From Within stands alongside The Gravedancers as my favorites of the After Dark series.

Ever since the release of movies like the Grudge and the Ring, a decade ago, we have been flooded with these similar movies and aren't you tired of them by now? The movie studios are, that's why all the recent ones have been direct to video releases with little to no promotion. I really don't understand why they keep insisting on beating us over the head with the same story over and over again. From Within is exactly like all the others, people start dying, most everyone sees it as strange coincidence, except for a hand full of people who see something supernatural. This time it's suicides in a small town, a bland, predictable take on a story that has been done to death! From Within has the distinction of being even worse, because of it's awful cast. This film proves that as long as you are good looking, someone, somewhere will be willing to put you in a movie, regardless of weather or not you actually have any talent. I choose this film, because once again, the description they wrote for it made it sound like one of the coolest horror movies of all time. Instead, what I got was boring, predictable, and a complete waste of time!

This wasn't the worst thing I've ever seen, but it was just mediocre - I wouldn't watch it again.
