[Netflix] Movie Review: Darkness Rising


Darkness Rising is a 2017 supernatural horror film directed by Austin Reading starring Tara Holt as Madison, Christian Ganiere as Seth, Bryce Johnson as Jake, Katrina Law as Izzy, Heather Mazur as Kate, Myk Watford as Daniel, and Ted Raimi.

This is a stereo-typical haunted house feature film. There’s not much of a plot: return to childhood home at night before it’s demolished, get trapped in house, almost die in house, escape in the morning.

There is some explanation throughout the movie. The main character suffered trauma in the house as a result of the house possessing her mother. So as we go along she remembers more things and of course the horror escalates. Honestly, this movie is pretty forgettable, and doesn’t stand out from the genre.
