On the outskirts of a small town lies Devil's Den, a mysterious tract of woods where many have entered but no one has ever left. The local rumor is that the spirit of a young girl who was horrifically murdered there haunts and hunts in this dense forest, brutally slaying anyone who dares to step into her terrain. When a man with a dark past crosses her path, a series of events are set in motion that may lead to a peculiar kind of redemption for two tragically tortured souls.

Critic Reviews for The Dark

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

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.

Strong directorial flair, believable make-up work, a tragic tale, and powerful performances prove that The Dark could very well be the next Let the Right One in.

The Dark is an unusual and refreshing film that was definitely one of the biggest surprises... at Fantasia.

There are many foul and twisted charms to savor throughout, thanks to solid cinematography, fine editing and an engaging turn from lead actress Nadia Alexander.

The Dark is a horror movie that tries something unusual, and in a lot of ways, commendable: it engenders a surprising amount of empathy for its monster and has as much to say about friendship and loyalty as it does cruelty and evil.
