From the Dark Review (2014)


The Story

A couple on a trip through the Irish countryside find themselves hunted by a mysterious creature.

The Review (Spoiler Free)

From the Dark is straight up monster/creature movie. A couple stumbled into a house in a countryside and they faced with mysterious creature. The rest of the movie is them struggling to survive.  The entire movie takes place over one night.

We don’t know too much about the monster.  Only thing we know about the creature is that it was buried underground for long time and a farmer accidentally discovered the creature.  The creature appears to be like crossover between vampire and a zombie. Unlike vampire, it appears that it doesn’t like any kind of light.  Since it is countryside, they struggle to find any light to survive.

From the Dark isn’t high budget movie, but the acting is pretty good and monster special effects are decent.

From the Dark is not an original movie and there isn’t much a story line.  But the movie isn’t terrible.  There are lots of suspense and action in the movie.  Only complain about the movie is that most of the movie is dark and it was hard to see what is going on and many oft the scenes are very shaky scenes it is even harder to make out what is going on.

In the Nutshell

From the Dark isn’t anything special, but it’s not terrible.  If you want to watch monster movie that you don’t have to think about too much, this is one for you. I give 3 out of 5 stars.
