September 30, 2020
As uninspired a genre entry as even its generic title suggests, The Darkness can't muster the ability to entertain as a campy misfire or a formulaic thriller.
October 3, 2019
If you're wondering what's lurking in The Darkness, it isn't much of anything at all.
November 2, 2018
While The Darkness is not by any means a horrible film, it is definitely a forgettable one.
October 11, 2018
There's no pay off, no scares, no original plot elements, but a ton of melodrama worthy of a TV movie of the week.

It is baffling how bad The Darkness is.
January 16, 2017
The eventual transformation of The Darkness into a tedious genre exercise is particularly disappointing given its strong opening...

[The Darkness] favours generic mumbo-jumbo about inter-dimensional demons.

We get Radha Mitchell, surrounded by Pottery Barn furnishings and moping, and Kevin Bacon conducting a valiant effort to keep himself from falling asleep.

We need, you Carol Anne. Stay away from the light, dear.

The Darkness does offer up several great moments visually that are pure nightmare fuel, but what follows truly lacks any sort of boundary-pushing that you'd hope to see from the guy who introduced us to the murderous Mick Taylor in Wolf Creek.

Blumhouse Productions releases one of its most forgettable films with The Darkness, a poorly thought out, thoroughly unsurprising horror movie.
July 1, 2016
Oddly, this well-cast horror movie is more interesting for its family drama than for its scares. It might almost be worth seeing, if not for the nonsensical story, jump scares, and other lazy stuff.

Native American Poltergeist - I mean, The Darkness - is a bland blend of popular paranormal movies that never defines itself.
May 20, 2016
As a movie of any sort, it's entirely self-serving and exists solely to cash in on audiences desperate for any sort of horror film fix.

As bland as its uninspired title.
May 19, 2016
A film woefully lacking in true fright.
May 16, 2016
Almost painfully conventional, but the cast is solid and Act III delivers some decent chills.

McLean must have believed he was making John Cassavetes' "Poltergeist," but this odd fusion of psychodrama and supernatural hokum gets away from him.
May 14, 2016
The scariest things about this one are the previews to "Don't Breathe" and "Lights Out" attached to it.
