Darkest Night (2012)

I love low budget flicks and often try to find different ones to view. This past weekend, I stumbled upon a low budget flick that I had not seen. That is the next one up, the 2012 entry Darkest Night.

Plot/ A family gathers for a happy reunion and marriage announcement on Christmas Day at an isolated mansion in the Philippine mountains only to encounter a series of bizarre, demonic, and tragic events.

This was another low budget gem from Brain Damage Films. That being said, it is far from perfect, as there are some uneven moments with the acting, pacing and hand-held camera work. The idea to the storyline was there and there was enough originality to make the found footage aspect somewhat different than the typical entry in the genre. This film had potential and likely would have been more appealing had it ditched the found footage aspects and went with a traditional shoot. In the end, it is not the best found footage flick, but it is also not the worst. If you enjoy this type of flick and are out of options, go ahead and check it out. However, it is not a must see.
