Don't waste your time and money on this one. I bought it because I love horror movies and it got 5.7 stars on IMDB.com. This may have been good a long time ago, but it's really quite horrible and you'll definitely find yourself asking for your time and money back if you can actually finish it.

The movie opens with a man (Reed Diamond) who had something horrible happen to him, he just doesn't know what, he cannot remember his name nor his past. After being a tester for a new drug, he starts having horrible visions of a mud-like monster. He meets a kid name Stanley, and they both become friends. The rest of the movie is about the man's, played by Reed Diamond, journey to recover his lost memories, and Stanley's quest to find out what his father is up too.

Lucy Lawless --everyones favorite warrior princess/Cylon -- plays the alcoholic mother, a victim of abuse, which is quite a different role than we are used to seeing from Lawless; she does it well. Greg Grunberg --Alias's Eric Weiss, and Heroes Matt Parkman, also plays a very good, and different role than he has played in the past. In this movie he is the sadistic husband of Lucy Lawless. The acting is great, the plot isn't the most original, nor all that scary, but is entertaining, and stays interesting throughout its length.

This is a straight to DVD release. As such it doesn't have that high of a budget, you should not be expecting a masterpiece, but this movie does deliver quite a bit. I'm giving this four stars because the actor's performances are great and the concept is intriguing. Fans of Lucy Lawless and Greg Grunberg should have no problems nor regrets buying this DVD.

I don't want to give to much away, but if you enjoyed films like "The Jacket", "The Butterfly Effect" or the directors other movie "Room 6" you should pick this up.

So stupid it hurts...
The first third of the movie was riddled with (many, many) pointless and sometimes disorienting flashbacks.
Nutjob antagonists conveniently have home videos of their nutjob mother torturing them as children, which play in a convenient and timely manner.
Protagonist did so many stupid things that it was hard to feel sorry for her. (Want a shard of glass to defend yourself with? How about a baseball bat? Or a hammer? No? Okay...)
This movie had potential...kinda...well, maybe. But who cares? They killed it.
How did the last third of the movie go? I don't know, I stopped there.

This has a plot, acting and production values well above most Prime included horror films. Religious fanatics demented by their psycho mother lure wayward girls from their rehab to a secluded mansion to torture and kill them in the name of their sick idea of godly cleansing of sin. One tough and resourceful girl uses her cleverness to fight, she is very believable in the role. She refuses to be their victim despite the horrors she sees them commit and the hopeless situation she is lured into. lots of tension and be warned, there is some gore and a touch of torture porn.

If you like Saw type movies you will probably like this. I did.

Michelle (Kaylee DeFer) was the impaired driver of a car that killed three people. She is at a rehab hospital run by Rachel (Elisabeth Röhm). Michelle wants to move on with her life, while Rachel believes she needs to deal with her issues and purge her sins. Rachel sets Michelle up with a job at the "Darkroom" run by Larry (Christian Campbell) who we later find out is her son. As it turns out Michelle gets imprisoned in a room with a breakable wooden chair, pictures of herself in a bra, and an analog TV with bad home movies. As we all know, psychotic Christians like to use power tools to cleanse people of their sins. Spare the power drill, spoil the child.

The film is light on originality and decent dialog. "Who's a naughty girl?" is a question you ask during a playful spanking, not an amateur appendix operation. Much of the film is told with flashbacks. If you are waiting for "Hostel 4" or "Saw 7" you might want an appetizer.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex. Brief nudity (Kaylee DeFer) Torture.

I purchased Darkroom anticipating another Boogeyman type movie, you know a horror, scary type movie with laughs. Well it's more a pyscho drama with a whodunit twist instead, even the title of the movie is a bit of a mystery. I did enjoy the movie, Michael does a good job with keeping you engaged in trying to figure out the mystery disappearances of several characters. Lucy does a very credible job of neglected wife considering this role is a huge departure from anything she's ever done. The main character has some major issues to resolve in his life and in the end I'm still not sure if he resolves them. Overall, good acting, a few scary moments, and a twist at the end to keep you guessing.

Wow, Christian Campbell seems to be the bad guy nowadays. He seems to have come along way since "Trick" Loved that movie. Even in spite of Christian Campbell, who I think even in this movie is terrific and so are his siblings as the Crazy ones. Elizabeth Rohma and Tobias Segal. I barely gave this movie 3 stars because I find it difficult to have any feelings at all for the girl who is being tortured and held captive because she got drunk and crashed her car and left her boyfriend and 2 friends to burn to death and she has no remorse. I felt more for the siblings once you see what their mother did to them to mess them up so bad. So, this is up to you to decide. Kaylee DeFer really did nothing to get some type of emotional attachment or to even root for her.
