THE DARK­NESS

A fam­ily come home from a trip to the Grand Canyon with more than they bar­gained for in this lat­est Blum­house hor­ror – a su­per­nat­u­ral curse.

A greater com­mit­ment to ex­plor­ing the fam­ily ten­sion ex­ac­er­bated by the son’s autism and daugh­ter’s bu­limia might have helped make up for the unimag­i­na­tive scare tac­tics, but these po­ten­tially in­ter­est­ing themes are dropped en­tirely for generic mumbo-jumbo about an­cient civil­i­sa­tions and in­ter-di­men­sional de­mons (that the film­mak­ers take far too se­ri­ously). Stephen Pud­di­combe
