Village Voice
Rarely has a film's tagline been more fitting: "Some secrets should never come to light." Full Review
Chuck Wilson
L.A. Weekly
Full of shuttery jump cuts set to music cues so loud your heart can't help but convulse, Darkness should have been left to molder in Miramax's vast vault of horror-movie stiffs. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
The sketchy characterizations, laughable dialogue and less-than-stellar performances by the formidable cast, all of whom have done far better work in the past, provide further reasons why Darkness should never have seen the light of day. Full Review
Jonathan Holland
Though pic boasts decent perfs, potent atmospherics and eye-catching visuals, both psychology and plot are bargain-basement. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
Some movies should never come to light, either, and Darkness, bearing a 2002 copyright, might well have been better left on the shelf. Full Review
