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 fun watch. If you like a nice and simple creature feature then this one will do the job. Of course it’s not groundbreaking and absolutely wowing; however, it does what it needs to do in giving the view fun moments of suspense, dread, and a badass creature.
this YMMV bit of nonsense about the varying levels of light needed to scare off the "mysterious creature" is nonsensical. A match? Like someone said, why didnt she burn the house. Lots of light then. Guess they can't afford to burn a house down for a movie. At least the lead female is now on HBO's rasied by wolves so her career didnt die.
not quite sure why they didn't set the house on fire = protection and attention.
So the vampire was England, the couple were Northern and Southern Ireland and the farmer a loyalist scum. I get it.
Weird pacing in the second half
