Storyline

When estranged brothers Adam and Clint attempt to reconnect over a week-long hunting trip in remote Washington State, they find the tables turned by a mysterious presence lurking in the forest. Convinced that they are now besieged by a supernatural presence, the siblings begrudgingly agree on only one thing: they will have to put aside their differences and work together if they plan on making it out of these dark woods alive.

Promising, but Maybe with Lack of Budget to Be Completed
14 March 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In British Columbia, Adam (Robin Dunne) visits his estranged brother Clint (Dan Payne) to reconnect their relationship after fifteen years apart from each other. Clint has always been the favorite of their father Glen (Daniel Cudmore) and Adam feels grief and sorrow. The plan to go in a hunting party along the weekend to hunt deer and supersede their problems. When they stumble upon a cave surrounded by deer antlers, they flee from the spot. But they are chased and stalked by a supernatural creature. Will they escape alive from the being?

"Devil in the Dark" is a promising little film that begins as a drama switching to horror, but maybe with lack of budget to be completed. The cinematography and location are wonderful and the acting is good. But there are many subplots without explanation or conclusion. For example, Clint is the manager of a lumberyard and needs to fire four workers and…what? When Clint and Adam were children, Adam went missing from his father Glen and Clint in the woods. What happened? What is the creature in the cave? What happened in the cave? My vote is four.
