And Soon the Darkness 2002 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This film used to get shown on television a lot back in the 1970’s. Now you hardly ever see it.
The story is very simple. Two girls are on a cycling holiday in France and one of them disappears. Watching this as a youngster I was very scared and having bought a region 1 copy it holds up well all these years later. The director Robert Feust keeps the tension admirably high without having that ‘in your face’ quality of some modern thrillers. There is a lot of subtlety in this film that is sadly missing from some modern teen slasher films. Clearly the director was from the Alfred Hitchcock school of what you can’t see is scary, rather than showing everything upfront.
There are some nice extras on the disc, including a commentary, trailers and biograpical details.
