From The Dark
Directed by Conor McMahon
A young couple are terrorized by a mysterious creature that thrives on darkness in this Irish horror film from director Conor McMahon (STITCHES). Woe to Sarah, whose boyfriend Mark ignores their GPS, landing them smack in the path of a truly frightening monster. Together, the couple must wield light-making devices to escape - before it's lights out on them. Fangoria called this disturbing couple-in-trouble story a "taut, coiled piece of dread-infused cinema" that "delivers everything one could hope for from a fresh entry in that [creature horror] subgenre." Contains strong language, violence and gore.

Pretty good. Bad ass female lead. Little slow and a bit predictable but not bad.
After suffering through THE POD, this film is very satisfying. The cinematographer did an incredible job with his use of focus and minimal light. I loved seeing the out of focus creature stirring in the background at times mixed with shadows and full-on Nosferatu/Voldemort roaming. A good creepy night in Ireland.
This movie isn't bad, but it's not great. There are some beautiful shots, but overall this film was a bit boring and predictable, save for a few plot twists and surprising scenes.
