“Deep in the Darkness” is about a family leaving New York City for the country. Unfortunately, something is awake under their rural home. The film works better, as long as we’re not seeing the creature threat. Once we see the source of terror, all suspense goes out the window. Even Charles Band would’ve been taken aback by the cheapness of the monster.
Weird creatures living under a house aren’t new, they’re just underutilized in horror. Dean Stockwell and Blanche Baker show up to lend some credibility to the story. Unfortunately, the film succeeds at being what it is. A slightly mature TV movie that wants to execute big concepts on a non existent budget. That might’ve worked in the past, but there’s too much competition for that to work now.
The Blu-Ray comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is pretty sharp for a low budget horror movie. The 1080p transfer pops with what it has. The same goes for the DTS-HD 2.0 master audio track. In the end, it’s worth a rental or a stream.
