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.

The opening scene shows so much promise. Beautifully orchestrated. Every scene after that continues to spiral downward. It’s worth a watch but not a second one. 3 SKULLS for atmosphere and Cinematography. 2 SKULLS for execution.
One of the best vampire movies ever!
I feel sorry for those who thought this movie was "slow," "boring," or "predictable." Seriously? Even though the key villain is revealed pretty quickly, I thought the tension was incredible and there was no way to know what each character was going to do until it unfolded. I was gripped the whole time and enjoyed feeling genuinely creeped out and on edge.
Female lead, I like that. The entire movie is her outsmarting these THINGS, at times it was tedious.
I like the premise but it wasn't executed well. The sluggish pacing and lack of suspense really grind this one down.
