Darkness falls

Corporate responsibility and greed have ruined horror movies. Pressured by public and political groups to clean up their act and stop marketing adult material to teenagers, Hollywood has gone to such extremes to comply that most of the horror films of the last couple of years feel like shadows of their former self. Instead of making and marketing R-Rated horror films that obviously appeal to teenagers, Hollywood now makes PG-13-Rated horror films so they can have their cake and eat it too.


Unfortunately, with “Darkness Falls,” someone left the cake out in the rain, leaving those of us who appreciate a good, adult scare with nothing more than a watered-down mess. Click on title for complete review. (Columbia-TriStar)
