Editorial Reviews

A dark road, a sleepy driver, a motel looming out of the night. Writer-director Chad Feehan takes those classic thriller elements and weaves a disturbing and compelling tale of love and the nightmare grip of ghosts from our past. Josh Stewart ("The Curious Case of Benjamin Button") and Jamie-Lynn Sigler ("The Sopranos") deliver intense performances as a young couple who take refuge in a roadside motel. Soon, the couple has crossed paths with a mysterious desk clerk and his sultry blond wife, as well as a stranger who is somehow privy to their most closely guarded secrets. Like a love story by way of "The Twilight Zone," "Beneath the Dark" touches your heart even as it chills your blood.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would be Enjoyed by Twilight Zone Fans June 4, 2011
By Compay
If you're in the mood for a motel movie with plenty of scary moments like Vacancy, this may not be what you're looking for. But if you like slow-burning psychological thrillers in the vein of Twilight Zone episodes, Beneath the Dark is worth a watch.

The movie follows a young couple who make a road trip, and find themselves taking a detour at a quiet motel out in the desert. As other mysterious characters begin to reveal themselves, the dark truths hidden in one of the pair's past is revealed.

I didn't expect much from this movie, considering it went straight to video. But it was actually shot well, with a surprisingly good score. Josh Stewart (from The Collector) offers a decent performance as Paul, boyfriend to the character played by Jamie-Lynn Sigler (Meadow Soprano). I was also happy with the acting job by Chris Browning (Book of Eli, Let Me In), cast as the unusual motel clerk.

There are only two downsides to this film. The first is that you really have to hang in there until the last 20-30 minutes, as the story plods along. It does help build up the mystery of what's happening to the main characters, but some people may lose interest halfway through. The other con is that the film borrows a few elements from other movies. Mentioning their names would spoil Beneath the Dark's twist, so I'll simply leave it at that.

One thing that's for sure, the end has one element involving photos that I haven't seen in other movies. I had to watch the final minutes of the film a second time to really understand it, and that helped make it a great ending. Not a movie I would have bought a ticket to in theaters, but worth a rent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly very good April 1, 2011
As the movie description indicates, this is a "psychological thriller," but it is more. In short, the film tells the story of an unmarried couple that has car issues, and ends up spending the night in a dodgy, way off the beaten path hotel, only to find the lead male subject to a set of bizarre encounters. Interestingly, there is a story that runs parallel to the unmarried couple, but it intersects with the unmarried couple in a few very curious ways. While the film was very good throughout (good acting, good camera work/production values), I kept asking myself I wonder how they will tie all these seemingly different parts together. And it wasn't until almost the very end that the underlying real concept came through. Perhaps embarrassingly, I have to say that the real concept caught me a bit off guard. The official movie reference to "psychological thriller" led me to think the film was somewhat tritely working toward a recreation of many other good films (e.g., Identity), but this ended up not being the case at all. This is not to imply that the twist is unlike anything you've seen, but its good enough to give you a few minutes of pondering the situation and connecting all the threads into a cohesive whole. Again, irrespective of the underlying concept, the movie was enjoyable to watch - the acting was good, the production values high and the artistic value spot on. I'm not sure whether this is a frequent watch type of movie, so I highly encourage the reader to consider a rental before buying. However, it doesn't have to sit in your DVD player every day to merit a four star designation. Really well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this movie May 13, 2012
Plot: Driving to a wedding in Los Angeles through the Mojave desert, Paul and Adrienne pull off the highway and into Roy's Motel and Cafe. This roadside rest stop proves to be a strange and surreal place with an unsettling mix of travelers, who force the couple to discover a hidden secret.

Yeah, I took that plot summary from wikipedia. Sue me. I didn't feel like writing a different one. Nevertheless, I liked this movie more than any other movie I've seen in years. The pacing has been described as sluggish. I agree. But I was never bored watching this film. Not once. Still, I totally understand how many other people could be bored watching this film. The cinematography was good though.

The performances were also good. The actors were deep into their roles. I've never seen any of them before this movie. I guess not having a big name star helps me identify with the movie more. Paul, the main character truly spoke to me: his feelings of loneliness and trying to run away from something in his past. This is something in his past he felt no control over, but at the same time he felt he had complete control over it. That doesn't make sense if you haven't seen the movie. The event in his past that changed his life could have been avoided if he had stood up and said, "No, I'm not going to let this happen," and walked away. But he didn't do that. Although I didn't committ a sin as bad as Paul's, I've made some mistakes I could have easily have avoided. I'm sure everyone has. However, Paul's past comes back to haunt him when he realizes his sins had bad consequences for others. His sins also has a bad consequence with Adrienne, the girl he loves.

This movie did speak to me. My life is pretty directionless. I feel like Paul.

4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly different February 28, 2014
This movie is totally not what I expected, and I'm glad it wasn't. It was a psychological thriller with heart. The type of film that, if you hang with it, will be on you mind for some time. Superb acting raised this film considerably. Well worth the watch.
