“Stay in the light”

Copyrighted, Magnet Releasing

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “When a massive power outage plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, a disparate group of individuals find themselves alone. The entire city’s population has vanished into thin air, leaving behind heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows.

Soon the daylight begins to disappear completely, and as the survivors gather in an abandoned tavern, they realize the darkness is out to get them, and only their rapidly diminishing light sources can keep them safe.”

Negative—This movie was interesting to begin with. A suspenseful film. There is a scene with a man on an operating table whose chest is open with tools left in there, and he is conscious, but alone. For that reason, I would not let my son watch the movie until he was 18. I found it disturbing.

Other than that though, there was a fair amount of swearing, some of which was done by a 12 year old. The lead male also offers this boy alcohol to drink.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, the ending is useless. There really is no explanation and I felt I had completely wasted an hour and a half or so of my time. If I’d have known it was one of those films without a proper ending, I’d never have rented it. I think it was supposed to have some kind of biblical reference to light and darkness, but it was hard to understand that reference, as it was subtle and, in my opinion, if it was supposed to be a reference to Christianity, it was totally off the mark.

I found this film a total waste of time.
