Luckily, they also summon Summer Vale (Brigitte Kingsley), a sexy, axe-wielding demon-hunter.

Customer Reviews

So bad that a week after viewing it, I couldn't tell you a thing about it other than it was really bad.
Paul A. Harris
If you like occult/witchy themes, old leather-bound tomes from magic bookstores, parallel dimensions, demons, and battle princesses, you will like Dark Rising.

I originally bought this movie because Cure Gravity (the Oshawa rock band) sings 'So Amazing' at the big finale. For sure it is a 'B' movie. But it is a good one. If your into scantily clad women running around slaying monsters and then having a big party to celebrate, then this is for you.
Finally it actually has a pretty good story line but gets corny a lot.

I only got this DVD for one reason: Brigitte Kingsley. I had watched Medium Raw which she stars in and immediately was smitten :)

This movie is basically a Grade B movie, hovever if you just want to gawk at Brigiite Kingsley in barely there outfits this movie is for you. She is a remarkable uber hottie of a different type. If you are hetro it's worth a few bucks to buy this flick.

This movie has a lot of heart behind it. Yes, it's low budget and that shows through in some places, but there are superb comedy moments, many beautiful shots, and a deep enough storyline that you can only grasp the surface level upon the first viewing. I've watched this at least 5 times.

Brigitte Kingsley and Julia Schneider are powerful, sexy and adorable. Landy Cannon and Jay Reso complement each other so well that they seem like they've been friends for years, and their sense of comic timing is impeccable. Andrew Cymek provides a stellar script with the perfect mixture of religious/mystical overtones and science fiction.

This lesser-known movie is a rare gem. It's got a similar feel to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Specifically Season 4 of Buffy where there's a mix of sci-fi and government agency involvement.) If you like occult/witchy themes, old leather-bound tomes from magic bookstores, parallel dimensions, demons, and battle princesses, you will like Dark Rising.

After you've watched this, there are two TV series (The Savage Tales of Summer Vale and Dark Rising: Warrior of Worlds) and a feature length sequel (Agency of Vengeance - Dark Rising 2: Summer Strikes Back) all of which I am looking forward to seeing as soon as they make it to the US.

I didn't know what to expect when I bought this movie. I was surprised! It was a real hoot. It's campy in the same vein as anything by Bruce Campbell. Jay Reso (Christian from the WWE) shows he has a real talent for doing movies. His sense of humor shines through. There's good looking dudes, lesbian love scenes, a demon with his organs on the outside and a girl with a battleaxe. This movie has everything a night with a beer and a bowl of popcorn demands for a fun evening! Kudos!

This movie is a fantasy-horror-comedy that could have been a Bruce Campbell production. In fact, the leading actor, Landy Cannon, could pass for Campbell's younger brother. If you have ever seen a Bruce Campbell production, then you understand precisely what I'm talking about and what to expect. For those not familiar with Japanese television, Doguchan (Kodai Shojo Doguchan) was a popular series about a woman demon hunter played by a young, amply-endowed actress in a bikini-like costume - exactly as in this movie. At the beginning of the Japanese program, a caption thoughtfully cautions the viewer that the following is "Junk Drama." Neither this movie nor Doguchan takes itself seriously, and neither should you! Just sit back, put your brain in neutral, and enjoy the fun!

Format: DVD
The best things this movie has going for it are the cast and the production values. Cast issues are obvious. Production values are surprisingly high, and take an otherwise bizarre, absurd concept into watchable territory. Frankly, the movie concept is not at all interesting, and will largely appeal to fans of D&D. Further, the gradual unfolding of the story leaves far too much to be wanted; it simply makes little sense and cannot rely on a David Lynch or Tarrantino level of artful telling to save it. There are a few scenes featuring battles with monstrous figures; the figure are, putting it mildly, laughably bad. Perhaps that was the intent (in an Army of Darkness kind of way, there are obvious parallels), but the whole thing just fails. So...the production values (i.e., image quality, camera work, etc.) are good enough to make this watchable, just don't expect a thriller.
