Fresh: As far as semi-abandoned midwinter Hollywood compost goes, though, Darkness Falls basically brings home the bacon for horror fans.
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Thursday, January 23, 2003
Rotten: The best thing to be said for Darkness Falls is that it contains one decent piece of advice: Stay in the light. When the lights are on, after all, this movie won't be shown.
- Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel, Thursday, January 23, 2003
Rotten: You will find more frights in Finding Nemo. And you might just have more fun playing with your lollie wrappers, performing shadow puppets on the screen - or even picking your nose - than enduring this dimly lit horror movie.

This will screw up what kids think about the toothfairy for years....ha!

This is a tricky one to rate. Basically, it's shit. But at the same time, it didn't bore me because it's not pretentious, and at just over 70 mins, it's mercifully short. It has literally no plot to speak of and the dialogue is lame and repetititive; it feels like a po-faced and lesser episode of the X-Files, but it's reasonably well shot. In the end, a sense of humour would've helped immensely. Inoffensive rubbish.
