Title: The Dark

Date: 2005
Type: Horror /Thriller
Rating: 2 Stars 2/5
Colour: Yes
Director: John Fawcett

Maria Bello and her daughter Sophie Stuckey visit her estranged husband Sean Bean who is living in a remote Welsh farmhouse. When their daughter disappears she is replaced by a girl who died 50 years previously as part of a cult that lived in the house. The basic plot is fairly predictable, though some parts are not explained, the shocks are typical horror style and there is little build up of suspense. Mario Bello gives a reasonable performance as the increasingly distraught mother and Sean Bean gives a solid performance sa the father. The biggest problem is the plot rather than the performances or the direction.
