What can I say about this movie?  It was the best!  No, wait, I’m just fucking with you.  It was god awful.

On April Fool’s Day (sorry, we’re a little late), a man and his sister end up at this secluded motel where the hotel manager keeps pranking them.  He “jokes” about money, sends the brother a dick pic and of course, he starts to scare them.  But is it real?  How much of a monster can he really be?  Well, apparently, he can be a huge one if the circumstances are correct.

The brother is an internet troll and I suppose they could have done more with that, but they don’t really.  The hotel manager, who isn’t really the manager, is a psychopath, plain and simple.  There’s no under-layers to him.  No figuring him out.  He’s flat as cardboard.  They both are.  Then, the sister shows up just in time to get scared, assaulted and then murdered even though she’s the only terribly innocent one in the film.

It was so fucking stupid.  It really was.  It was unrealistic, too.  The cop comes and is killed and no other cops show up when he doesn’t return??  Not gonna happen.  And at the end it’s revealed that everyone thinks the brother was the murdered the whole time.  Umm, hello!  It’s called forensics.  They would’ve figured it all out.

The acting was fine and the effects were good.  For that, and nothing else, it gets points.  We were so disappointed overall though, that we’re not even sure we’re gonna give this Into the Dark series anymore chances to toy with us.

Our score: 10.
