Overview

Hollywood success d'estimes Maria Bello (Payback, Duets) and Sean Bean (Troy) team up for the 2006 direct-to-video horror opus The Dark - a gothic tale of supernatural terror with echoes of Orpheus and Eurydice. When Manhattanite divorcee Adelle (Bello) and her young daughter, Sarah (Sophie Stuckey) sojourn to a farm newly purchased by Sarah's dad, James (Bean) on the Welsh coast, an unspeakable tragedy befalls everyone: Sarah drowns. Or, so it appears. For soon, Adelle uncovers a strange history behind the property, entrenched in Welsh mythology. A half-century prior, a gaggle of schoolgirls committed mass hara-kiri on the Welsh cliff behind the farm. One of the victims, Ebril (Abigail Stone) makes a startling reappearance and warns Adelle that Sarah has been abducted and dragged to Annwyn, the Welsh Hades. Now, Adelle and James must team up to rescue the young girl - before she is completely extinguished. John Fawcett (Ginger Snaps) directs.

    Fright and Flight: A Seasonal Mystery

    THE DARK is a beautifully photographed brochure for Wales. And as far as the rather silly content goes, it is a better than average Halloween season tidbit. Despite some good ideas dealing with old Welsh mythology, the plot wears thin and spends most of the film's time in dark and tiresome explorations of dank rooms in a cottage by the sea. The sea is the main character and serves the movie well. Adapted from the novel 'Sheep' by Simon Maginn, the squeaky screenplay by Stephen Massicotte has a very simple plot idea dealing with a legend that in Wales a dead person enters a purgatory-like place called Annwyn, a mythological place humans can enter spiritually or corporeally, and can be redeemed by the sacrifice of a living being willing to die as the payment for the return of the dead person. Darkly secret veiled Adèle (Maria Bello) and her troubled daughter Sarah (Sophie Stuckey) visit husband/father James (Sean Bean) who has followed his loner dream and escaped to Wales, living in an old haunted house where once dwelled the Shepherd, a leader or a religious sect not unlike the Jamestown group. Knowing that the sect jumped of the nearby cliff so that the Shepherd's daughter could be restored, the current action mimics the past and to reveal which characters are involved in which way would be detrimental to the viewer, depriving what little surprises there are in this overlong film. John Fawcett directs a strong cast who are required little range of emotion. But oh, the scenery! The tale is different enough to place it a few bars above the usual Halloween fare (there is sufficient gore to satisfy the seasonal need!), but the painterly Welsh coastline is well worth the rental dime.
