From the first few scenes of this movie as well as the synopsis I could tell this movie had a LOT of potential. However, I can firmly say that I don't feel like it lived up to that potential. Digging deep into the 'isolated small town with a dark secret' bag of tropes, it tries and sadly fails to set up what could have been a very interesting film.

Oct 23, 2015 · Deep in the Darkness Movie Review (#23 of 31 Days of Horror) When Dean Stockwell tells you to sacrifice something on the weird altar he’s brought you to in the middle of the forest, just do it. And when a troglodyte hands you a sharp object and demands you bash in Dean Stockwell’s head, you might as well just do that, too.

Apr 21, 2015 · Digging deep into the 'isolated small town with a dark secret' bag of tropes, it tries and sadly fails to set up what could have been a very interesting film. I enjoyed the first few scenes to be honest and the ominous atmosphere they were going for where it seems like everyone is trying very hard to avoid telling the protagonist more than they should.
Deep in the Darkness takes a now familiar horror premise and reinvents it, more than competently, in my opinion. Its not a terrifying film but it has enough menace, to infuse the story with a sense of unease and edginess it definitely benefits from.

Apr 29, 2014 · The New York Times panned the film, expressing disappointment that the film did not live up to its full potential. The disappointment is understandable, as this overall good film has a flaw or two. Indeed, the creatures are revealed a bit too early, and seem to be somewhat lacking in believability, looking possibly like a poor man's imitation of the creatures from "The Descent".
