Bring your battle axe… Jason Parks (Landy Cannon) sees his life go from bad to worse when a series of supernatural events turn his dream of reconciliation with his ex Jasmine (Vanessa James) into a nightmare. While on a camping trip, Jason, along with his ex-fiancé, her new girlfriend Marlene (Haley Shannon) and his best friend Ricky (Jay Reso – wrestling superstar Christian Cage), accidentally summon a blood-thirsty demon. Luckily, they also summon Summer Vale (Brigitte Kingsley), a sexy, axe-wielding demon-hunter.

Customer Reviews

Even bad comedy can work with the right timing/pacing.
L. Hannen
If you like occult/witchy themes, old leather-bound tomes from magic bookstores, parallel dimensions, demons, and battle princesses, you will like Dark Rising.
Jeffrey R Day
Then again, his WWE character seems to fit in perfectly with this kind of over the top storyline.

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 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.

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!

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

It took over forty minutes (that's 40 plus minutes!) for the action to start and then there wasn't that much of it that was very exciting. The second one was better (Agency of Vengeance: Dark Rising). Continuity was thrown out the window in lots of places - getting from the woods, back to the apartment, and back to the woods on foot - and all kinds of confusing time warp/missing time crap that is never really explained. Watched it, and the second one (which was much better) before I gave them away.

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 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.

Dark Rising is one of the campiest films I've seen all year! I have a hard time knowing whether it's the kind of campiness that's appealing to me on some unexplainably goofy level, or just downright pathetic.

The film actually stars WWE wrestler Christian. What a surprise it was to see him staring in something so outrageously bad! Then again, his WWE character seems to fit in perfectly with this kind of over the top storyline.

Want me to explain the storyline? Okay, I guess I can do that... I think. Wait wait... Alright, I'm ready to explain it.

It's about a warrior princess (no, not Xena, but someone JUST as hot!) who goes back and forth through portals from the normal world to some demon-infested world. The demon is literally a regular guy dressed up in a monster costume with fake blood and fake teeth, LOL. At least the movie writers have a big sense of humor.

Anyway, a group of young adults (who happen to be dealing with their OWN unbelievably far-fetched situations) encounter one of those demons in the woods. Luckily for them, Xena-wannabe lady is a GOOD warrior! She fights to protect the innocent!

It turns out that, because of her good looks and her supermodel body, and the fact that one of the young adults happens to be a good lookin' guy, the two of them hit off a relationship... but not before the guy learns that his high school sweetheart prefers women over men. Yup, I *told* you the young adults had problems of their own! This takes up a good portion of the storyline as well.

WWE wrestler Christian plays the young adult too, even though he's by *far* too old for that particular role by this point in his life (plus his face is lookin' pretty beat up these days).
