Darkness Falls
from Film Forum, 01/30/03

While award-worthy films top critics' favorites lists, the latest derivative horror flick has topped the box office. Darkness Fallstries to trouble audiences with the story of a town haunted by demonic forces that strike unsuspecting innocents in the dark.

According to religious press critics, the scariest thing about this movie is the fact that so many people are spending hard-earned money to see it.

Loren Eaton (Focus on the Family) says, "While the cinematography … is occasionally interesting, its script succumbs to cliché after cliché."

Gerri Pare (Catholic News Service) calls the movie a "pathetically awful horror flick. Every character is one-dimensional and disposable—except, of course, the very few who survive but can't be certain the witch is dead. Spare us the sequel, please."

Troy Dandrea (Preview) writes, "Jonathan Liebesman's first directing attempt has some make-you-jump scenes, but also has its share of wannabe scary scenes. Darkness Falls may frighten some viewers, but others will see it as a silly series of gory murders."
