Audience Reviews for The Dark and the Wicked

  • Nov 26, 2020
    An indescribably bleak story of coming home far too late in rural Texas. Filmed in the director's own childhood homestead, the geography of familiar places is subverted into a labyrinth of creeping despair. What does the entity want? This is one of those stories where you feel suffocated by shadows. Do not watch depressed.

    I was excited to check out Bryan Bertino's latest offering, "The Dark and the WIcked." His debut, "The Strangers," was an instant classic introducing masked home invaders in the most unsettling of ways. His followup, "The Monster," was well-crafted as an estranged mother and daughter get stranded in their car in the woods while being stalked by a monster. It was ultimately disappointing as there was nothing to connect the disparate creepy happenings to the story-line. Many movies try to tease the viewer with unreliable narrators, leaving them to ponder whether what is happening is supernatural or all in the characters head. "The Babadook," "Black Swan," and "The Lighthouse" are examples of movies that do this right. Unfortunately, this doesn't. It's clearly something supernatural haunting everybody, but beyond some disturbing and/or violent scenes (all of which are well done), the movie is just too ambiguous in a very frustrating way.
