review by
Mike Haberfelner

It's the night of the Big Northeastern Blackout in 2003, and that's exactly the first night of Kate's (Whitney Able) first night in her new apartment - she has just moved in with her girlfriend Leah (Alexandra Breckenridge), but Leah's out of town for the night. Initially, Kate thinks little about it, tries to make the best of it, takes vanity pics of herself (she has once been a model), even goes out for a drink and meets a nice enough guy, Benoit (Michael Eklund), who doesn't even try too hard to pick her up. But then she gets a little too drunk, the way home seems like hell, when Benoit suddenly pops up at her doorstep that freaks her out - even though he just wanted to return her driver ID -, her drunk to the hilt neighbour (Bendan Sexton III) freaks her out even more, and then she seems to hear a constant knocking at the door that might scare the shit out of her - and only gradually do we find out there's something not quite right with Kate, actually ...


Now Dark is a movie that really understands to build up tension, and to hide clues to things to come throughout, to make the third act a suspense tour de force with a true shock ending, that also works quite as well because the film has by now managed to get us into the state of mind of its protagonist, thanks to a tight directorial effort but also a great central performance by Whitney Able.

Absolutely worth a look.
