Critic Reviews for The Darkroom

All Critics (2)

Half horror movie, half a mediocre episode of The Twilight Zone.

Full Review… | January 6, 2007

The story is kind of loopy and aspires to be a bit much more than the budget could possibly allow (think: Jacob's Step-Ladder), but thanks to excellent casting and some very good acting, The Darkroom is a bit brighter than you might expect.

Audience Reviews for The Darkroom

really cheap dumb horror movie went over the top on trying to scare and failed miserably plus the storyline sucked

Every time you see the monster it's like you've put on monster-specific beer googles. I can only assume the director really, really didn't want the viewers to see the zipper.And I loved when the amnesia guy was choking himself in his sleep... I laughed for at least a full minute. But allow me to be serious for a moment. The ending, which I'd heard good things about, didn't do it for me. And I really can't explain why without spoiling the movie.

This is one of those horror movies that tries to scare you based on the, "it could actually happen' premise. The ending makes the movie. When you finally put it all together at the end, you realize that eventhou most of the performances sucked, and the story was kinda confusing, it was actually very clever. Up until that point, it's jumpy and confusing as hell, but I can promise you it will keep you thinking and you won't have any idea until the end.
