Critic Reviews for The Dark Below

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The Dark Below could've easily been half the length - and half the waste of time - if Schulze hadn't used slo-mo in nearly every scene.

While its intriguing setup sounds like it could make for a provocative and original thriller, The Dark Below never lives up to its promise, although it earns points for originality.

Douglas Schulze's The Dark Below is an original and bold film that plays around with narrative conventions and preconceived notions of the thriller genre.

What hurts [the film] is the very aspect that there is no dialogue and no sound, thus the movie feels a lot like a gimmick in the end.

It's one thing if The Dark Below sought campy implausibility, but it craves legitimacy.

March 16, 2017 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Schulze comes up short in the chills department, exhausting the audience with iffy offerings of style that do next to nothing for the endeavor's fear factor.
