Dark (2015)

Now that I am finally getting back on track with things, it is nice to finally dissect some of the films tat have caught my eye recently. One such film is the 2015 psychological thriller Dark (my next review).

Plot/ A disturbed young woman must confront her worst fears when she finds herself trapped alone in a New York City loft during the 2003 blackout.

This movie is definitely one that falls into the love/hate category of filmmaking. More of a dark art house psychological thriller than horror, this flick offers some elements that make it worth watching. This one boasts some outstanding performances, a heavy atmosphere that conjures moments of dread, and an intriguing look at the spiraling psychology of being trapped in a blackout. Yes, there were times where the pace felt slow and some of the overall storyline elements were left dangling, but honestly, those add to the atmosphere and the emotional states of the main character. In the end, this one is definitely not for everyone, but it is a thought provoking thriller that is one of the better art house flicks I have seen in some time.
