The Darkness (2016, dir. Greg McLean)

A dysfunctional family comes under attack from ancient demons. Standard Blumhouse jump-scare oooga-booga with a clear debt to Poltergeist, though enlivened by a strong cast (Bacon, Mitchell, Reiser) and confident direction from Wolf Creek’s Greg McLean.

    1. Yep. I didn’t mind the movie at all – professinally made etc, but it didn’t seem to have much urgency about it, and the lifts from Poltergeist (and Poltergeist 2) made it feel a bit redundant.
