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
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this movie May 13, 2012
Format:DVD
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
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Netflix Movie Review: Beneath The Dark December 1, 2013
Format:DVD
So, this morning I watched the 2010 Chad Feehan as writer / director film, Beneath the Dark. The synopsis sounded good, but I tried it mostly because Jamie-Lynn Sigler beneath(Sopranos, Guys With Kids) was in it. The film also stars, Josh Stewart, who has been in a number of good films and TV shows as well.

Okay. The basic idea is that Paul (Stewart) and Adrienne (Sigler) are headed to a wedding. A guy from Paul’s college frat is tying the knot. Growing weary on the way, and a little frisky, Paul runs the vehicle of the road. It’s decided they will not push it and land a hotel room for the night.

The Roy Hotel is run by Frank (Chris Browning). He’s a step-and-a-half above Anthony Perkins on a creepy-meter, and the hotel is slightly more modern than the Bates Motel. Once tucked away in a room, Adrienne is still frisky (and while there is no nudity, it is quite hot), only Paul has too much on his mind and cannot perform. Frustrated he heads to the connected diner for coffee where he meets a Man (Afemo Omilami) who claims to be the Son of God.

The Man certainly knows a lot about Paul, and Paul’s soiled past, and aside from conversation, he tries to have Paul answer some simple questions . . . What Do You Believe In?

I can’t forget Frank’s wife, Sandy (Angela Featherstone). She is not a happy woman. Sandy stalks the bars looking for company. Isn’t hard for her to find what she wants. Not bra-less in a thin white tank-top. She shows up here and there. (And is quite sensual in a barfly kind of way). Seems her sole (or soul) purpose is to torment the loser-ness of her husband.

There is always homemade cherry pie and fresh coffee. There is a jukebox–while outdated with its selection–that is always ready to play.
