It's only slightly more enjoyable than having army ants gnaw at your privates.

So bad it's almost painful. Skip it.

April 29, 2009
A very flawed but entertaining and cheesy monster flick that would be fun to watch around a crowd with some popcorn.

Film lovers beware! The evil spirits of boredom will befall should you enter a darkened cinema and endure Darkness Falls.
February 26, 2007
It begins with not one but two prologues; one character turns up out of nowhere, his introduction no doubt left on the cutting-room floor; and the paltry 85-minute running time includes 15 minutes of end credits.
February 26, 2007
A mish mash of horror-movie clichés.
December 30, 2006
The kind of movie that gets laughs entirely unintentionally.

January 26, 2006
All semblance of plausibility is extracted, leaving a cast of TV actors to struggle with a plot with more gaps than an eight-year-old's grin.
September 30, 2005
Exactly what a horror movie should be; fun, scary, fast paced, and with 'jump' moments galore.

Oy, how it falls.
February 8, 2005
This is, quite simply, horror porn, with barely any connective tissue linking each set piece.

January 21, 2005
Provides for more than acceptable campfire fare (although at under 80 minutes, it lasts less than most Duralogs), with occasional moments of genuine visceral fright.
January 4, 2004
The problem is that both the plot and the characters are so thin that it's hard to care about anything that's happening on screen.

There are a few cheap scares, but overall the film is, well, toothless.

You will find more frights in Finding Nemo. And you might just have more fun playing with your lollie wrappers, performing shadow puppets on the screen - or even picking your nose - than enduring this dimly lit horror movie.

The characters are empty, the performances wooden, and of course, the grave little kid is omniscient.
July 8, 2003
Darkness fell along with my eyelids, during this dire by-the-numbers horror film.

July 2, 2003
A conventional, mildly frightening, low-grade horror flick with some humor (often unintentional) and as many gaps as a seven-year-old's mouth.
June 26, 2003
Darkness has fallen and it can't get up.

May 20, 2003
Irritating sound effects, cheap scare tactics and a comically bad script all add up to the year's first senseless cinematic attack on the senses.
