The Dark

Alternate Title: Silent Hill in Wales

IMDB link:

Starring: Sean Bean and the mom from History of Violence

Review: As we all know Sean Bean’s JOB is to die in movies. UNLESS he doesn’t. I can only name 2 off the top of my head where he live through to the end and it’s this movie and Silent Hill. SO the new rule is Sean Bean dies in movies UNLESS his character’s wife and daughter are trapped in a spirit realm at the end of the film.

So it’s in Wales, so there’s that. And creepy sheep and trepanning and people speaking Welsh. No Pyramid Head to make things interesting. The only reason I made it to the end was to find out if my Sean Bean theory was correct.

Where I found it: Amazon Prime

How much I paid for it: About an hour and 33 minutes of time I should have been working…

Points of interest:

The Money Shot: Right in the opening credits…

Main Glutton for Punishment at I Watched It On Purpose
My name is Jenn and I have a bad movie problem.

I love bad movies. LOVE them. I have several definitions of bad, but it all comes down to “bad on purpose” and “bad by accident”.

I will watch it if:

it can be described as science fiction, fantasy, or horror (Sometimes I will watch action comedy but these are less likely.)
it is described as a mystery or thriller and a serial killer is mentioned in the description.
it has less than three stars on Netflix
the cast includes Ron Perlman, Rutger Hauer, Henry Rollins, Bill Mosely, Bruce Campbell, Clancy Brown or Malcolm McDowell
Lovecraft, Cthulu or Dragons are mentioned in the title, tag line or box art.
