Editorial Reviews

When new parents Alex and Penny retreat from the city and move into a place outside town, the stress and massive sleep-deprivation caused by their infant has both of them seeing things. Persistent sightings of a strange woman has each of them wondering if they are suffering from hallucinations, or if their new home holds a dark, supernatural presence. As their fragile grasp on reality spirals into delirium, Alex and Penny find themselves nearly helpless to deal with the horrific truth of what is really going in this house.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware Buying a House in the Country June 11, 2013
In the interest of full disclosure, I will admit that after living in many parts of the country in a variety of dwelling units, I have come to the conclusion that, Rosemary's Baby notwithstanding, anyone who lives in a house and not an apartment, a multi-family dwelling unit as they call it, is asking for trouble, and, anyone living in a house with no neighbors within 15 feet of them, might just as well call in the Coroner or make an immediate reservation in the local institution for the mentally ill. When I see a film like this, I take it as only natural that the occupants will either be dead, institutionalized or, after much mental and physical anguish, departed for more salubrious housing.
I know nothing of anyone associated with the film in any way, but think that they did a decent job within narrowly circumscribed limits. The lead male seemed already half shot before the couple (with newborn baby) moved into their new surroundings. The woman appeared bewildered from the moment they left for the "country". The other parts were negligible to the central action of the film. It was OK for the creators and Director to play it low key and inexplicable throughout, but not OK for them to provide no meaningful source for the happenings
My recommendation: if you like haunted house movies this is generally acceptable and not a grade B horror film. If you do not like unresolved puzzles, you are likely to be dissatisfied with the film. I saw it and left it with a sense of unease, of incompleteness, a reaction which the Director appears to have wanted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Suspense Movie May 22, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a remarkably impressive film that mostly uses the good but seldom now used Hitchockian method of creating suspense without showing much blood and gore. It creates tension with expert filming, music, and writing. The story presents a very plausible explanation for the horrors that face a family. The suspense is greatly enhanced as a baby is involved. This is the best horror-suspense movie I have seen in decades.

The tensions are increased throughout the film which increases the suspense. The movie digresses into a more modern ending which includes some blood, which may be the requirements of today's audience. Fortunately, the blood is not overdone. This movie lets one ponder issues such as who is the hero and who is the villain? The script is excellent. Overall, while horror is not my favorite genre, I was deeply impressed.

3.0 out of 5 stars TASTES JUST LIKE BABY May 25, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Alex (Johnathon Schaech) and Penny (Pell James) move into their "Malibu Barbie Dreamhouse" with Tanner, their newborn. They are under stress as any new parents, plus there is construction going on nearby which makes daytime rest impossible. The film boasts a very good suspense and creep factor as a phantom woman (Lucresha Wells) appears to haunt them. Both of them have seen her and believe she doesn't exist. Their relationship becomes increasingly strained.

The acting and creep factor was done well. I really got into the film, but it seemed to go nowhere. You know everything seems to center around "the woman", but the film leaves you hanging about her until the very end, and then you say, "That's it?" The clues they give you don't allow you to piece things together. The climax doesn't do the rest of the film justice. A little more than a meh rental.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just fair May 23, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Slow starting, some scares and creepy scenes in it, I myself though did not care for it that much. Does have a twist in it which is decent, but again the movie to me was nothing great.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid horror movie July 14, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This was a very solid horror movie, I've heard some complaints about its pace but I personally felt it moved just right. It wasn't repeated shock scenes and nonstop creepiness, but with the context of the plot I think the pacing was just right.

There are some nods to horror fans throughout, and I think this is a great take on a "haunted house" story. Honestly seeing the director's history (super troopers, beerfest..) I did not have high expectations beyond a standard by-the-numbers horror movie (which is kind of what I wanted at the time), but I was pleasantly surprised by "Dark Circles."

Under normal circumstances I would rate this kind of movie at a three. I don't have the desire to watch it again, but I did thoroughly enjoy it and consider it worth recommending. This movie is set apart from a lot of modern horror though in that all the elements are implemented tastefully, there is the crucial element of mystery throughout, and everything that happens "makes sense," i.e. they weren't ridiculous plot devices to get the character in yet-another shock scare with sudden sound effects. The movie proceeded logically, and that might be part of what can make it really get under your skin.

2.0 out of 5 stars Honey... the crazy woman's under the sink again! March 1, 2014
By The Wiz
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
From the get-go this is a film that demonstrates a fair amount of legitimately creepy moments but unfortunately the central characters are just so darn unlikeable. He's a struggling jazz pianist, she's a former professional something-or-other but now stay-at-home mother; neither seem to be working much and yet they buy a big, new home in the country and sit around all day being driven steadily insane by construction workers, each other and a newborn that wakes up every 15 minutes screaming. Oh, and there's also a creepy chick in desperate need of dental work lurking about which of course makes a bad situation even more difficult not to mention that visitors have a nasty habit of dying.

I guess for me the overarching story was just way too depressing to simply enjoy the horror and again, the main characters are completely unsympathetic as they sit around stewing in paranoid, delusional fantasies all the while tearing at each other so that by the ending I really couldn't share in their triumph. :o)
