I liked this was original bizarre I wish to know what was inside the hole
Really the actual acting was atrocious and the plot was insanely stupid. I watched this by mistake thinking it was a movie I actually wanted to see.... Ooooooh boy was I wrong.
Where do I begin. For one, seeing a full grown man finger and have sex with a strange demon glory hole in a dirty nasty apartment wall was not something I felt was needed or really pushed the plot forward. I mean if having sex with walls is your thing watch this movie right now. Otherwise that's is without a doubt the highlight of the entire movie. He bangs a wall and it spits out weird eggs that he makes into ugly mobiles. It attacks some ginger lady and the movie totally doesn't explain anything about what happened to her (unless I missed it while yawning and rolling my eyes waiting for something meaningful to take place?) Either way the entire tone of the movie was what I assume was the writers desperately trying to find a way to show a man sexually pleasuring a violent wall hole to become rich in the art world. I can not understand what even caused me to finish this garbage because the ending was just as stupid as the entire movie. Please dear god do not give away your precious time on earth viewing this film. Anyone who claims to like it is a hipster who likes it ironically or for a stupid reason they don't understand but contains large words to make them seen chic and important. I enjoyed writing this much more than I enjoyed this stupid stupid stupid pointless anticlimactic gutter waste.
Was a bit weird and strange. But found my self sympathizing with the hole whose needs are just about as real as any humans.
what a weird f&/ed up movie. With a good actor might have been ok. kept waiting for the "feed me"line to be thrown in a la Little shop of Horrors
You know when a Movie is a Cult classic - when you just can't stop watching it. This is a Mid Night movie for all you insomniac's. The texture, cinematography, and color of the movie were in that classic Alfred Hitchcock wicket movie genre. The characters were well developed and likeable, even down to the
bewitching Hole, with the voice of a Sex Kitten. The story and dialog when in sync. I was on the edge of my seat, watching how it all developed. A Cult classic movie grosses you out, turns you on and makes you feel uncomfortable, uneasy, and unrelenting for more.
Deep Dark is in the realm of Teeth and Voices.
Pretty dumb horror. 2016
Good plot but the end could be better.
can't believe I wasted my time watching this crap
A great concept, sadly breaded up in a plot that flows like a river of cinderblocks, weak, unlikable, bizarre characterization, and a startling number of scenes that accomplish nothing even in its already short length. The mysterious hole in the wall is the film's only likable character, and sadly sits at the center of a mystery that circles the drain for about an hour and has two wet-firecracker false climaxes before it gutters to a halt. There's some great atmosphere, but it's kind of wasted. There are even two prominent characters whose entire presences in the movie could have been completely excised without the tiniest element of the plot changing.
I get lonely here all by myself. How about I help you make mobiles, and in return, all you have to do is spend time with me? That's it? That's it. Partners? Uh, yeah, yeah, partners. If you had a hand, I'd shake it.
There are movies that go beyond your understanding. You're left behind with a "what-the-hell-was-this" feeling. Films which are sinister, totally crazy and utterly surreal. Movies that'll make you say : "This can never be outperformed in terms of bizarreness". And then there's "Deep Dark". Too bizarre for words. Surreal and unreal at the same time. An ancient concept is used again though. It's another case study about an individual who pursues a specific goal and tries to achieve this at any cost. A kind of "3 wishes" principle with the additional nasty boomerang effect. It returns and hits you straight in the face.
Hermann Haig (Sean McGrath) is an artist who attempts to create modern and contemporary art. However, this doesn't work very well and people aren't that enthusiastic about his creations (mobiles with all sorts of recycled waste hanging on it). Nevertheless, he believes he has the talent and thinks there's something subtle missing to make real crowd pullers of his artwork. In desperation he asks his uncle for advice. Promptly this fellow rents out an apartment to Hermann. In that way he can find inspiration while being isolated from the outside world. A kind of a retreat so he'd be able to bring out that deep-rooted talent. Unfortunately, that deeply rooted talent remains right there where it was all along. And this to the dismay and despair of Hermann. When he's about to call it quits, Hermann discovers a hole in the wall. And to his surprise, something starts to communicate with him. First by means of a wire with a note attached to it. Afterwards the hole in the wall starts to speak to Hermann with a sensual female voice. And gradually this phenomenon helps him with his art.
It's rather difficult to link this film to a particular genre. You can't call it horror. But the opening scene might be shocking or disturbing to some. And the denouement has a surprise or two in store. But it really isn't scary or frightening at all. It seemed to have a direct line to my funny bone. Although it's certainly not comedy. Or you think that malicious pleasure is something humorous. It's also not fantasy. Just like in "Her" there's an invisible entity that talks to the protagonist with a sensual voice, only it's no software. And this time there's something physical to discern. That mysterious hole. A hole that hides a personality that yearns for attention and intimacy. And yes, you can expect the unexpected. Can you say there's some perverse humor in it? Yep indeed. I could label it as real estate porn.
You'll definitely have many unanswered questions afterwards. Where does the phenomenon come from? Was Hermann his uncle successful because of this? And what the hell are those slimy objects Hermann uses in his art? To be honest, the mobiles he creates afterwards, still look like garbage and worthless. However, the effect it has on spectators is pretty drastic. The only downside is the rather slow buildup. But otherwise this is a bizarre and strange film that I watched in amazement. Do you love something so macabre and crazy, with someone slowly sliding into something completely insane, than this is the perfect movie for you. However, I'm sure I'll be looking at a hole in the wall in a complete different way. I never thought a stupid hole in the wall could turn me on.
