Directed by Brandon Zuck. Written by Catherine Wignall and Mike Gan. Starring Giorgia Whigham, Papi Sonuga, Cameron Fuller, Olivia Liang, Jude Demorest and Zachery Roozen.
Plot: on St. Patrick’s Day night, a group of unlikely friends band together to save a college town from aliens.
This Into the Dark movie is about Misty (Sonuga) and the problems she has. One problem is with her BFF, Chloe (Demorest) abandoning her for a new friend, Yuejin (Liang). The other problem is that a guy named Michael (Roozen) apparently drugged her and his friend, Aaron (Fuller) is trying to convince her that he’s nothing like Michael. And this girl Shauna (Whigham) is the town drug dealer that ties them all together.
This “believe all women” story is a little on the average side. And personally – and this is coming from a woman – people should be innocent until proven guilty. But that’s just my two cents and certainly not anything this movie is interested in saying. The acting was good and it was realistic enough (sadly), but the the writers seem to be ranting a little too much for me. And side note, why do all aliens want to kill us? Maybe it’s cause we’re jerks like in this movie and not one of us is worthy of being rooted for. Food for thought.
It’s an average movie with an average story, but we recommend a viewing. Some of it was pretty satisfactory.
Our score: 51.
