Editorial Reviews

Beneath the Darkness is a teen thriller in the style of Disturbia, with high school kids pitted against a psychotic villain in a community where adults refuse to see one of their own is a serial killer. The villain (Dennis Quaid) is a well-respected mortician in a town where he was once a legendary high school football star. But among the kids he is legendary for a more sinister reason - rumors that his house is haunted. The truth is more evil and much more dangerous – the town leader murdered his wife and her lover when he caught them having an affair, and now has secretly set up house with his wife’s embalmed corpse. The local hero is a flesh-and-blood monster who buries his victims alive, a sociopath who befriends adults and police while openly flaunting his murderous intentions to the teens. He will kill anyone who threatens to expose him or his now-perfect marriage.

Customer Reviews

This is just a really bad movie.
ESW_ART
Dennis Quaid's acting was pretty good... the rest of the actors seemed to have phoned it in.
Eric Portenier
What's so surprising about this movie is that it is really good!

A groups of bored teens decide to spy on the creepy funeral director because they think his home is haunted. Sounds like the beginning to a bad idea, huh? It gets worse when the kids see something and decide they need to know what it is, deciding it would be worth it to snoop around the next time said home owner is away.

There is something about Dennis Quaid that makes him really creepy now. Its not simply acting - although it is really good - but maybe age or possibly years of acting that shines through in films like these. From the start he is out there being disturbing, too, and i liked that. This movie is powered by him, after all, and his character has to be believably disturbed and it is.

While there are a few places in the beginning that are slow, and the ending of this film - No Spoilers - isn't the best thing in the world, I still liked it. The plot is not one that is complex at all and, as with a lot of horror movies, it can be figured out rather quickly. That said, the chase, the uncovering, the mistakes - those things make up a movie to me. And those kids earn a nice little "why the hell are you doing that" badge. The acting is good enough and I kept wondering exactly what Dennis Quaid would end up doing next. there are also a few points that I did not expect - the stairs thing for one - that made me enjoy this more.

This is NOT going to overwhelm you as a film, and it shouldn't see that way. Simply watching the previews should tell you that you can figure it out fast. This is more like a character study off its medication, and I enjoy that. Quaid more than made up for any shortcomings for me.

4/5

That's how this excellent little mystery-horror film from 2011 struck me, and I mean that in a good way.

PLOT: Dennis Quaid plays a creepy mortician in a central Texas town. A group of teens decide to trespass his abode for thrills and everything goes awry.

Quaid and cutie Aimee Teegarden head the cast, but it's Tony Oller who shines here as the troubled protagonist. He's very reminiscent of Robby Benson.

Like I said, the story is like a Scooby-Doo yarn, but realistic and without the dog. Although Quaid is over-the-top and somewhat campy as the villain the rest of the cast play it straight. I was surprised by the dramatic score and a few really touching scenes.

Some complain that the subplot of a dead sister and a ghost sighting goes nowhere, but it's there for a reason, just think about it.

Although there's some realistic cussing there's zero raunch.

BOTTOM LINE: I was pleasantly surpised by this great little film. It's classy, sometimes moving, mysterious and thrilling at the same time. What more could you ask for in a movie of this ilk?

Shot in Bastrop & Smithville, Texas, the film runs 96 minutes.

GRADE: A- or B+

I think the acting was really good. I'm impressed with how well the young actors conveyed the intensity of the story. Aimee is just gorgeous and how can you not love her? She won me over in this movie. Dennis was excellent as a crazy villain in an un-characteristic role for the all-American actor. I understand how this scary story could really happen in a small town.

This is just a really bad movie. I don't know why some people are giving it good ratings... Are they being sarcastic? There is no character development and the plot is weak. Skip this one, you aren't missing anything.

This is an OK movie about a psychopath who used to be a town hero (football QB) when in high school.

The movie starts really brutally, and ends brutally with the same person. Mr. Ely (Dennis Quaid) is the town mortician. He is very pleasant and very social when other people are around but weird when he is alone. High schools kids decide to see what he is hiding and they are paying the price.

Average movie with good ending. The acting is OK but we are not scared at any moment (like the Vanishing for example) and we know how everything will end. Well, we think we know until the very end! Hence the three stars instead of one star for the somehow unpredictable ending.

"Help me prove he killed Danny." After thinking they saw a ghost a group of friends start to snoop around the home of local mortician Ely (Quaid). When they get caught something happens that changes their lives forever. Now with only their word it is up to them to convince the cops that the well liked Ely is actually a murderer. I had pretty high expectations for this movie. I really liked "Mr. Brooks" and I like Dennis Quaid and seeing him play a psycho I thought would be cool. Once again though like most movies the idea is better then the real thing. While Quaid was creepy the movie itself was very very slow moving and it took over 30 minutes for the movie to really begin. This is another movie where the ending is neat and worth it, but getting to the end is a struggle. This movie doesn't compare at all to "Mr. Brooks", but I would like to see Quaid in a better movie playing a character like this one. Overall, very slow and disappointing movie that had a lot of potential. I say C.

I probably wouldn't have seen this, even though I am a Dennis Quaid fan, if I didn't know the actress who played his dead wife. I LOVED the movie! It was filmed in the area my daughter lived, so that made it even more fun to watch. I think it is a good movie no matter the reason I watched it. The actors did a great job and kept me watching!
