Joseph Solomon: You've been looking shit up on the Internet. No, this is Gnosticism.
Sophia Howard: I was told it was based on the Kabbalah.

A Dark Song Is Dark, so be warned
23 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

I just finished watching A Dark Song on Netflix and liked it but it is no way a real horror movie it is more of a dark drama. The acting was exceptional with the main characters keeping me engaged. The ending did make me shake my head and say WTF! But did not ruin the movie like some of the users said here.
