Critic Reviews for The Dark
When "The Dark" clicks (which is often), it's a moving and poetic tale about how neglect and abuse can turn people into freaky beasts, and how love can bring them back.
This is weighty material for a slim film, and the direction by Justin P. Lange is heavy-handed. Mina and Alex seem less like teenagers and more like case studies with traumas rather than personalities.
On its own terms, writer-director Justin P. Lange's debut feature (with DP Klemens Hufnagl credited as co-director) is well-crafted and well-acted.
If you need some visual inspiration, maybe give this film a watch. Otherwise, this is a hard pass.
The Dark is a novel, intriguing riff on myriad monster tropes - zombie, revenant, werewolf, serial killer - that remains its own defiantly ghastly thing.
