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.

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.

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.

I am a huge fan and collector of horror movies, but, unfortunately, no longer easily frightened or disturbed. One of the After Dark season one movies, "Unrest," actually gave me nightmares, so I am disapponted that the After Dark series has run out of steam. I bought "Dark Circles" when it first became available, and was bothered enough to want to see it again, but couldn't remember the title or from which of my collections it came. I am happy to have relocated it after much thought and searching. Anyone who has ever had trouble sleeping or gone through long periods of sleeplessness for some reason (I worked back-to-back night and day shifts for several years) will relate to the feeling you get when you are exhausted even to the point of seeing things that aren't there (I nearly swerved off the road on the way to my night shift to miss a guy who wasn't there). Some terrible things happen when this guy finally gets some sleep, and the nightmarish feeling of the final scene might make you wonder if he ever woke at all. This is probably a four, but I'm giving it five so that those who stop only for highly-rated movies might consider giving it a twirl. As a tough critic of horror films, I recommend it, and am just about to watch it again myself.

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.

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.

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.
