Editorial Reviews

The makers of the award-winning action drama, Warriors End, bring you a horror film unlike any other!
A group of college co-eds take a trip to a mountain lodge looking for relaxation, beer, and maybe a dip in the hot tub. But when they stumble on clues about an ancient legend, they quickly find themselves fighting for their lives. Will they be able to escape this unspeakable evil? And are they the only ones who have ever crossed its path?
Shot hand-held in first person, POV style in a remote area of the Washington State Cascade foothills, Eyes in the Dark shows there's no terror worse than our own fear of the unknown.

How come some movies that are absolute garbage get massive distribution deals and some get left behind to be forgotten? 'Eyes in the Dark' deserves to get worldwide circulation right now and make the guys who created it gazillionaires! Yes, it's that good!
When a group of students head out into the Cascade Mountains for a weekend of fun and frolics, little do they know that they will raise the wrath of vengeful and bloodthirsty supernatural forest beasts.

That write-up is pretty much all the story is about, but it's the way that the film is put together that sets it apart from most other movies in this genre. We are told that we are viewing secret FBI video evidence found at numerous sites in the vicinity of the lodge where the kids are staying. It's all very well made and when the creatures finally make their appearances, they do not disappoint, even if we don't see much of them. That probably works in the movie's favour. In fact, I wonder if the producers of British sci-fi horror film 'Attack the Block' got some of their ideas from this film?

I cannot stress how much I loved this movie and I wish it was easily available to buy on DVD without having to order from the United States

UPDATE:
I ordered the DVD and it made the trip from the USA to the UK extremely quickly, so top marks for that!
Also, the DVD has Special Features:
Audio Commentary
Blooper Reel
Music Video
and a pair of trailers

It is a well done, albeit low budget monster movie. The characters held their rolls well and were believable. The scenery in the film was good and the sets matched what the atmosphere was supposed to be. I think it was a good buy for me. Some elements of the film reminded me of a combination between the Blaire Witch Project and The Legend of Boggy Creek.

Eyes in the Dark is a great “found footage” film, one that has somehow remained below the radar since its release in 2010. Presented as a series of classified videos accessed via an FBI server, it purports to show proof that authorities are covering up a series of missing persons and deaths in the Cascade Mountains. The first video is a short cellphone video of some scared guy meeting a mysterious end, followed by the video diary of two biologists out tracking deer migration patterns in the wilderness – let’s just say they discover why deer migration patterns have recently changed. The majority of the movie, though, deals with eight missing college students and the ill-fated search and rescue attempt to find them. Eight friends head up to a remote mountain lodge in order to get away from the stress of exams. They are blissfully ignorant, of course, of the legends surrounding that area – how local Indians have always avoided the place and left cryptic warnings about “eyes in the dark.”

I think both the writing and the acting is pretty darn good, making for believable characters interacting in ways that seem genuine. The only real shortcoming of the film is the special effects – but even that isn’t a real problem because the film is all about the terror caused by the entities with the glowing red eyes. Since you get no more than glimpses at the creatures, there’s not a great deal of gore, either. That’s sound filmmaking in my opinion – revealing the “monster” often detracts from the thrill and suspense of the action. And let’s face it, with an estimated budget of five grand, you would be hard pressed to present any kind of monster capable of pleasing the audience. I also liked the multiple story arc of this film; I think it is one of the first of its kind in the found footage genre, predating V/H/S by a couple of years. If you’re a fan of found footage horror, I think you’re really going to like Eyes in the Dark.

Love the multi-perspective story arc. Instead of cutting footage from cameras in same time. They show all cameras separately. So will so a 10 minute shot and have another character with a camera get separated will play one then go back on timeline and play the other. Give slight puzzle aspect to suspense on what happens to who. Sweet creature design too. Like how can mainly just see glowing eyes and sometimes huge white teeth mouth. Back to practical effects and good direction :)
