Dark Was The Night (2015) Review:

“A monster invades a small town in the US countryside”. With its one line scenario, Dark Was The Night will not be remembered for its novelty. Yet, it compensates by doing things simply but well. The movie is gripping and worth your time.

For a monster movie, this one is special in that it plays only on anticipation and never show the creature (aside from its feet) until the final climax. Thereee is a large part of psychological horror, and good work is done at presenting the tension between the villagers, with credible actors and realistic characters. Usually in monsters movies, the tension decrease when the creature is shown and, for the same reasons, the tension remains pretty high here throughout all movie here. Kevin Durand (X-Men, Real Steel) is a great actor and his amazing performance here adds a lot to the movie.

The problem is that seeing the creature in the final scenes ruins everything. I wish I had stopped that movie 5 minutes before the end and it would have had a much better rating.
