Beneath the Darkness: Review

Starring Dennis Quaid, a group of high school students hear rumors about the “creepy mortician” in the neighborhood and decide to pay him a visit. What they find is a disturbing sight. After bring confronted and escaping the house of the mortician they are now his targets. He starts terrorizing the kids for what they saw and determined to silence them one by one.

This is one of those “under the radar” kind of movies. You know, the ones that make you say “Hmmm, well that sounds intriguing”. It was interesting to see Dennis Quaid in a role such as this. It’s huge departure from what he has played in the past and to be honest it kind of suits him well. I don’t think I’ve seen any of his work quite like this. The story could’ve used some work though. It has a good premise but I kept waiting for the big moment and it just never happened. Certain scenes had good build up and just as soon as I thought a good scare was coming it kind of fell flat. One of the only parts that made me feel creeped out was a buried alive scene. I don’t think I need to say why, it pretty much speaks for itself. Basically, this film had the inner workings of being pretty damn good but just missed the mark. It wasn’t completely horrible but most likely something I wouldn’t watch again.
