The Darkness (2016)

A family find themselves being tormented by demons after their autistic son procures a bunch of possessed stones during a trip to the desert.


Another generic horror blah blah blah generic family terrorised blah blah blah people are idiots blah blah blah nothing new to offer blah blah blah.

At least this one is more eager to jump straight into the paranormal activity before it starts boring us to death with the family's problems. That way I get a couple of extra minutes before I gouge my eyes out. But that's about the only remotely nice thing I'll say about this film. Otherwise, it's a mind-numbingly dull clomp through half-arsed cliches with aggravating characters which takes itself and its film-making too seriously for anyone's good without ever believing in what it is doing (so no kind of 'God's Not Dead 2' hilarity). Basically, it's something faceless that has been churned out to fill a cinema screen that happened to be empty. I'm not even going to bother adding more to this. I'm so tired with these wannabe 'horror' films. Next one I see like this I'm just going to copy and paste the bulk of this review. Either that or I'll just tell it to 'F*** Off'.
