A thoroughly generic horror thriller that might provide how-to tips for film school students who lack funding.
These nine people are indistinguishable, and we can't be bothered to care - or even notice - when they begin to die.
Other than mostly eschewing the found-footage style in which one can easily see it going, Brent Cavallaro's horror film leaves no clichéd stone unturned.
The film vacillates between two explanations for the hauntings - one supernatural, one boring - strobing back and forth until the film's final, exasperating twist.
Too much of its time is spent waiting for things to happen and never giving us a reason to care whether any of these characters live or die.
Against the Night is better than swallowing Tide Pods, but only just.
A fun little horror movie making due on a clearly limited budget, and while it stumbles more than a few times it's a success where it counts.
Its plot bumbles along, never quite sure of exactly where it wants to go or what it wants to achieve, all while bombarding us with infuriating camera work, tedious characters, and dreadful performances.
Ranks right up there with the very worst of 2017.
