critics consensus

Yet another predictable variation on the hoary old haunted-house movie, Darkness is an illogical, portentous mess. Read critic reviews

    I thought the story to this was pretty good, but it just got really slow in some parts. But It's still a pretty good horror flick.

    Not as bad as many critics have said - it is true that it is disappointing in terms of plot and script but there is some creepy atmosphere occurring and the cast are good although outgunned by its weaknesses.

    Such a suck ass movie. The acting and script are so awful it makes me nauseous. The entire plot was horribly executed as well. It was such a boring movie. I would also like the punch in the face whoever did the film editing. Some parts were trying to be suspenseful, but the film editing was so awful it seemed like the movie was having a seizure. In one part where the lights go off, the camera is focused on the father's bleeding hand, then it switches upstairs to the boy's room, then rushes outside and focuses on some swings in the rain (wtf??? so random), then goes back to the father's hand, then goes upstairs, then goes downstairs where the mother is trying to turn on the lights....it's like the movie has freakin ADD. This movie needs some medication. The potential was there, but everything else was not.

    Too convoluted to be scary or even entertaining.
