Audience Reviews for The Dark Power

The Dark Power is about as awful as a film can be: a stupid plot coupled with terrible acting, atrocious direction, and abysmal cinematography create a film that should be hard to watch. However, The Dark Power manages to overcome these massive flaws by being absolutely hilarious. It's not always clear whether The Dark Power considers itself to be a comedy, but it certainly is. At times its commentary on racism and Native Americans seems to be blatantly racist in itself, but the film is too stupid to take seriously. Instead, it merely becomes a complete laugh riot as one idiotic plot point after another occurs in conjunction with the bizarre, brain-dead, and nonsensical comments of the characters. A film ready-made for MST3K, The Dark Power is an excellent film to watch with buddies and a case of beer.

Classic cheeseball horror with all the main ingredients: outright offensive racism, boobs, only one moment of sweet gore, a very long and unprofessional whip fight between a demon that doesn't know how to use one and an old cop who does which isn't fair at all to the demon and finally a total disregard to a woman's right of declining sexual advances brought by male persistence

B-movie horror about some ancient cult/tribe waking every thousand years to wreak havoc on an area where they died thousands of years ago. Or something. It's really crap with horrible characters and rubbish music and a whip fight! But one of the zombie monster things was pretty cool and one of the female characters was fit so y'know, at least its got a couple of things going for it!
