Editorial Reviews

This Lynchian nightmare stars Thora Birch (AMERICAN BEAUTY) as a woman who can't escape her bad dreams. The line begins to blur between reality and the horror that lives in her mind making everyone--including the audience--wonder what's really happening. DARK CORNERS also stars Toby Stephens (DIE ANOTHER DAY) and Christien Anholt (RELIC HUNTER).Runtime: 95 minutesFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: HORROR Rating: NR UPC: 013137215698 Manufacturer No: DV72156

Customer Reviews

Some gore in this and not many scary moments at all.
E. Metzger
So, we've got a fuzzy killer that looks like a deadly Hip Hop Dance hall DJ from New Jersey, and a girl who hides from the killer in a dream.
Bartok Kinski
It has that esoteric feel and pace so common in Japanese horror, though this film's resolution is slightly less accessible.

I enjoy movies that I can't figure out immediately. I also like movies that are a bit odd, off-kilter so to speak. You know, films like MEMENTO, HEADSPACE, JACOB'S LADDER, CARNIVAL OF SOULS, etc. Well, DARK CORNERS fits right in with these other classics of bleakess and dread! Thora Birch (American Beauty, Ghost World, The Hole) plays the dual role of Susan- in the sunny, happy world of light, and Karen- in the darkworld of nightmare. I was perplexed by what connection there could possibly be between these two women. I was pleasantly stunned by the answers at the end! The last movie to make my jaw drop (in a good way) was HIGH TENSION. DARK CORNERS had that same twisty, grabber of a finalé for me. So, if you are a fan of the macabre, weird, or creepy, then this one will be a treat...

I sometimes have really vivid nightmares that are similar to the somber world the protagonist finds herself in when she sleeps. Those sequences come closer to the look and feel of the sort of nightmare where everything seems sort of off key and grotesque than anything I've seen except maybe parts of Jacob's Ladder. If your significant other tends towards dreams of peaceful meadows with happy bunnies (OK, I admit I'm being sarcastic), but never has nightmares, and just doesn't understand why you sometimes wake up shaking and on the edge of tears from a harmless little dream, show him this.

I noticed the director is British. I wonder if a little of that is flavored by C.S. Lewis's Great Divorce, such as the bus trip with one end in Hell.

Sometimes I wonder if everyone on this site is reviewing the same film. Dark Corners (2006) was pure discarded film school material with Thora Birch suddenly moving back and forth between two different people having two different hairstyles. So, we've got a fuzzy killer that looks like a deadly Hip Hop Dance hall DJ from New Jersey, and a girl who hides from the killer in a dream. Oh, scary.

The film stagnates due to being shot on a lousy digital camera, so it views like an inferior home video, and really bad acting makes this film difficult to watch.

The dull story played out as if it had been made up as it went along from scene to scene, the gore/fx were poor and unbelievable, and the so-called anxiety sequences were supremely lacking in zest or vivacity.

Absolutely no plot whatsoever except the deadly Hip Hop killer randomly killing people in gruesome ways. This movie was supposed to be a film like David Lynch's Lost Highway (1997) and yet it was the dullest thing ever.

Everything about this movie was irritating, especially the ending, which was far and away one of the worst conclusions I've yet come across.

In one of the DVD's special features, the director notes this film is influenced by Japanese horror. That's a valuable fact to keep in mind while watching. It has that esoteric feel and pace so common in Japanese horror, though this film's resolution is slightly less accessible. Cast about for some message board discussions once you've read for some interesting theories and interpretations.

Beyond the plot, this is a visually interesting film. Color and lighting creating remarkable contrasts between the parallel story lines, each slightly surreal.

Thanks to Thora this is much better than average. A weird dual world theme is explored in this clever but not great scare film. The script and direction are just okay. Nice look too. Not too graphic, more of a suspenseful mind game. A good example of the lead raising the whole production. Also see the obscure "Left in Darkness" for another good but not great film with a strong female part.

I had to watch this movie more than once to get exactly how creepy it is. I would encourage anyone who is into the Horror or Supernatural genre to give this movie a shot. It will leave you wondering what is real or the nightmares that lurk down deep inside all of us. Thora Birch is brilliant in a duel role. And Christien Anholt (who plays her devoted husband in the film) isn't hard to look at either. There's a line Thora's charactor delivers in the movie that has stayed with me and kind of haunts me to this day: "Hell is having your sins pulled from the dark corners of your soul and served up to you in a continuous loop." Or something to that affect. I gave it four stars based on the fact that it is quite possibly the strangest movie I've seen to date.Dark Corners

This movie was not terrible but one of those movies that left you thinking it could have been much better.Basically its about a girl(blonde haired thora birch) who has nightmares where she has brown hair and is being stalked by a killer called needle tooth.This brown haired thora is also having nightmare where she is blonde haired thora.The ending is kind of predictable as I saw it coming right away.Some gore in this and not many scary moments at all.I fell asleep about 30 mins it and had to rewatch it.

Dark Corners (Ray Gower, 2006)

This movie had almost bottomless potential-- done right, it could have been one of those indie gems that becomes a cult favorite. There are flashes of that brilliance throughout the movie. But it never quite reaches its true potential, and there are times when it gets so badly derailed that it's incapable of getting back on track. Because of this, it's one of the most disappointing movies I've seen in recent memory, while I have to give writer/director Ray Gower respect for having had the ambition to take on such a formidable project in his first attempt at writing and directing a movie.

Thora Birch (American Beauty) plays two roles here. Susan Hamilton is a happily-married woman who's trying to get pregnant. When she falls asleep, she adopts an alter ego, Karen Clarke, who lives on the (very, very) bad side of town, works for a crazy undertaker, and is constantly followed by strange characters whose intentions are never certain. As the film goes on, we begin to wonder which of these realities is the "real" one, or whether Susan Hamilton and Karen Clarke are actually doppelgangers living in the same town. And what's the deal with the Night Stalker, the serial killer active in the city? What does he have to do with the story?

There's so much here. Gower has a wonderful ear for dialogue; there are scenes here that rival the best of Tarantino, as far as the script goes. The acting ranges from the competent to the brilliant; Birch, especially, has rarely been better. The cinematography is always interesting, if a bit obvious in its influences.

And therein lies some of the weak spots that pock the film; it's a little too much at times, in every respect. It's not just the cinematography.
