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.

    Mar 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Mar 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.
