Editorial Reviews

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.

Wrestling match between Christian Cage (Jay Reso) and Rhino

Customer Reviews

That's saying a lot from a guy that likes, or at least tries to find value in any movie I watch.
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.
Jeffrey R Day
Then again, his WWE character seems to fit in perfectly with this kind of over the top storyline.
B. E Jackson

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 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 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 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.

Jason Parks (Landy Cannon), romantic, optimist, and world's worst story teller laments over the break up with his girlfriend Jasmine (Vanessa James) who he has known since high school. But Wait! He gets a chance to win her back on a group camping trip. Jasmine is joined by her lover Marlene (Haley Shannon) something Jason remains clueless about until the end because he "knows when something is right." They pick a location where Summer Vale (Brigitte Kingsley) disappeared as a young girl, something that involved her father, a book, and demons which we get in the first scene. Renee (Julia Schneider) happens to secure that exact same book and knows the spot of the disappearance because of a scene that they cut which shows up in the deleted scenes, thank you. Needless to say bad props and bad acting abound when they get there.

The story is low budget and campy. It goes for the dialogue and laughs. It is light on horror and credible fight scenes with "characters [that] come off a bit superficial." In that regard the film is fun to watch for those who like the cheese.

Guide: F-bomb, sex, girl/girl nudity (Vanessa James, Haley Shannon)

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.
