Critic Reviews for Darkness Rising

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

This is a low-budget horror film so generic you'll forget everything about it, including its title, just hours after watching it.

Although the script is stuffed with eerie objects and happenings, there is a sense of restraint that keeps "Darkness Rising" from becoming frightening.

As blandly forgettable as its title.

While there's no reason to hate this effort, I can't say there's any reason to like it, either.

July 14, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Generic haunted-house story will have trouble standing out from a crowded summer theatrical environment.

Audience Reviews for Darkness Rising

There is some great - not just good, but genuinely great - gore effects in Darkness Rising. But it sucks. It sucks a lot, and as much as I've got an affection for Katrina Law after spending so much time with her in Spartacus and Arrow, she is not a great actress, not in general and not in this, and she's still the best actor of the bunch. There might have been a solid idea here once, and there's obviously some talented people working somewhere behind the scenes, but even if you're a diehard horror fan, you can skip Darkness Rising altogether.
