Editorial Reviews


Stephanie (Amber Heard) and Ellie’s (Odette Yustman) vacation to an exotic village in Argentina is a perfect ‘girl’s getaway’ to bask in the sun, shop and flirt with the handsome locals. After a long night of bar-hopping, the girls get into an argument, and Stephanie heads out alone in the morning to cool off. But when she returns, Ellie has disappeared. Finding signs of a struggle, Stephanie fears the worst, and turns to the police for help. But the local authorities have their hands full already - with a string of unsolved kidnappings targeting young female tourists. Skeptical of the sheriff’s competency, she enlists help from Michael (Karl Urban), an American ex-pat staying at their hotel. Together they go on a frantic search for Ellie, but Stephanie soon realizes that trusting his seemingly good intentions may drag her farther from the truth. With danger mounting, and time running out, Stephanie must find her friend before darkness falls.

Customer Reviews

Its not a horror film, its more of just a thriller.
David Santos
They end up missing the bus the next day so they go on another little trip, bad move.

It's not perfect, but it's scary and good fun and the leads can act.

Once it gets going, AND SOON THE DARKNESS is a pretty good little thriller that will have you sitting on the edge-of-your-seat during the last half hour or so.

The film is a remake of a 1970 movie of the same name that starred Pamela Franklin. That picture dealt with two English girls on a bike trip through rural France. In this new version, the girls are American and they are traveling via bicycle in rural Argentina.

Actually, I think that that, as well as some of the girls' other actions, is a pretty stupid thing to do, but in the movies, characters tend to do stupid things.

In any event, the girls have a spat, briefly part company and then one of them (Odette Yustman) disappears. Her friend (Amber Heard) desperately tries to find her, but the town's one police officer is no help and she's not sure if she can trust the lone American (Karl Urban) there, who claims that his girl friend disappeared in this same area three months earlier.

I've never seen the original version of AND SOON THE DARKNESS, so I can't really comment as to which might be better. This one, from director Marcos Efron, might be a bit violent for some people, but others will find it quite entertaining.

And, the Argentina countryside is gorgeous.

I really enjoyed "And Soon The Darkness".
I heard such negative things and read negative reviews saying it was boring and all been done before.
I'm going to have to disagree.I thought the acting was really good,the character development above par for this type of film and it kept you guessing .It was a little slow to start but not at all boring,the great acting beautiful scenery and colorful characters kept you entertained.

When it really jump started it was full speed ahead, bringing on the Bad a** chick scenario which I love.Amber Heard was excellent as Stephanie an American tourist in Argentina who ends up fighting for hers and the life of her girl friend Ellie played by Odette Yustman like a wildcat in a corner through the last 30 minutes of this movie.I won't call this Horror but an action ,suspense,thriller with some mystery thrown in..

There was no gore ,there were some kills but nothing horror worthy.It was a really good I made a mistake going out of my country flick ..The ending is pleasing as is the entire movie.With all the trash you find these days it's nice to find a movie with good acting a great cast and a well executed storyline.. I give it 2 thumbs up.

Well, this movie is a remake, and the plot is quite familiar: Two young American women go vacationing in Argentina to get away from it all. After a night of drinking (predictably), one of the girls (played by Odette Yustman) gets mixed up with a violent, suspicious male. The next morning, the two girls get into an argument, and go their separate ways. When the other girl (played by Amber Heard) returns, her friend is gone.

The police become involved, but of course they don't know much and are very little help. There is an American male who is also searching for his girlfriend, and he helps search for the missing girl. Predictably, people are not who they seem. There are some twists, and the scenery is visually stunning - but what really gives the film an edge is the exceptionally strong performance by Amber Heard. In a breakout performance, she manages to make the film tense and fast-paced all by herself. The story has been done ten thousand times before, but it would be hard to argue that any performance by a female lead in any of those other films were as strong as Heard's performance in this one.

Amber Heard plays a girl with no quit in her, its nice to see blondes being the smart ones in film for a change. Odette is beautiful too. Its not a horror film, its more of just a thriller.

Funny thing though. The girls had trouble finding hotels and other spots, but found the club pretty quickly.

Two hot American girls - Ellie (Odette Yustman) and Stephanie (Amber Heard) - are in Argentina on a cycling tour when they decide, "Hey, we don't have a map, can't speak a foreign language, have very limited supplies, nearly no money, and have existed up to this point in life on looks and revealing clothing alone, screw it; let's separate from the group and do our own thing." Great idea!

I didn't hate this movie, but I didn't love it either. Categorized as a PG-13 horror/thriller, there wasn't much to be expected other than two beautiful and talented women showing off their bodies and their acting abilities. Somewhere in there we get Karl Urban as an expatriate with bad acting skill and a missing sister. His character is supplementary at best, distractionary at worst. Hint: His role could have been filled by a scarecrow. Ignore him though, because these two chicks have jean shorts so short they literally touch internal organs. Speaking of the literal, there is literally one single moment in the entire movie that wasn't status quo for this subgenre. Of course, nothing completely disappoints either. It's simply a recycle of the same thing you've seen before. I guess the views of Argentina are beautiful enough to ignore the predictability. Maybe not.

In the end, this is equivalent of the first half of Taken. Except now it's two hot chicks, and they're in enough trouble that if Nancy Grace has seen it, she probably got moist before the credits rolled.
