Editorial Reviews

psychological thriller . . . critic's pick!"" - New York Times ""Haunting... terrifying... a dramatic re-invention of the contemporary horror film."" - Ain't It Cool News Things die. New things are born. A harrowing psychological thriller, Daylight pits a couple lost in America against a conniving gang of kidnappers, in David Barker's rigorous and personal re-imagining of the genre film. Despite its familiar genre elements, Daylight is different - a powerful, shocking piece of vigorous cinema, which fuses eroticism and tenderness with the harrowing weight of pregnancy and kidnapping.

3.0 out of 5 stars Appeals to Fans of Slow-Burning Psychological Thrillers February 29, 2012
By Compay
If you're a fan of thrillers such as Silence of the Lambs or Seven, Daylight may not be what you're looking for. But if you appreciate psychological thrillers that focus more on character relationships than plot, this film is definitely worth watching.

Daylight is the story of a European couple that are kidnapped after offering a ride to a hitchhiker. While this isn't a new concept in film, there is at least one twist in the situation: one of the kidnap victims is pregnant. This adds a new spin on what was already a dangerous situation for everyone involved.

What stands out most about Daylight is how rounded the characters are. You're given very human glimpses of the generally violent kidnappers, and how a pregnant mother-to-be is both vulnerable yet determined when it comes to protecting her unborn child. Rather than emphasize why everyone is in such a cat-and-mouse situation, the film largely explores the complex relationships that exist between the characters.

Although much of the cast wasn't particularly experienced in film, it worked with what they had. Alexandra Meierhans, despite being a newbie to acting, does a convincing job as the pregnant hostage Irene. Ivan Martin absolutely nails his role as the Alpha male of the criminal group responsible for the kidnapping.

As far as drawbacks to this movie, the biggest one is how vague the entire story is. The audience is given almost nothing to work with as far as a backstory on the kidnappers. There's no focus on the relationship between the husband and wife, only pieces provided through the occasional flashback. Even though the film does come to a startling conclusion, plenty of unanswered questions remain.
