The Unexpected Final Twist Surprises any Viewer
3 October 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Madden Woods, Sheriff Paul Shields (Kevin Durand) is passing a difficult period of his life and is divorcing from his wife Susan (Bianca Kajlich) after the accidental death of their son Tim. Susan has moved to the house of her mother with their son Adam (Ethan Khusidman) that wants his parents together. When Paul and his partner Sheriff Donny Saunders (Lukas Haas), who has come from New York, are summoned by a horse breeder to investigate the disappearance of one horse, they believe that the man has forgotten the gate open. Soon they find strange footprints and they believe it is a prankster playing a prank on the population. But soon Paul realizes that something weird is unleashed in the town and the Indian bartender believes it is a Wendigo. Sheriff Shiels asks from support from the National Guard but a storm is coming and the troop will only arrive later. Will he be capable to protect the inhabitants with Donny from the evil that is coming?

"Dark Was the Night" is a suspenseful horror film, with good story and well developed characters. The story seems to be the conventional movie with happy ending until the unexpected final plot point that surprises any viewer. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): Not available on DVD or Blu-Ray
