Let me put it this way:  I had an associate volunteer to review The Dark.  Two years ago.  Whenever I bring up the subject, he bursts into tears and we have to lock away all the sharp objects.

Ok..., that´s right... I´m gonna visit this web,..., but is the movie so dumb as they say?... L. Maltin speaks about it in his videoguide...: "well done, bur predictable sci fi movie... "

Lennie Malty will call anything with the camera not pointed at the floor the whole movie "well done." Remember, he showed up on MST3K a few episodes after they grilled his ass to perfection.

This is how "well done" "The Dark" is: it was originally supposed to be about a man-creature gaining a kind of rotting immortality through cannibalism. Then they changed the story into one about--maybe--an alien, but kept all the mysticism hoodoo, overripe shambling zombie, and so forth, but adding eye lasers. (And the climax is stupid. No matter if the thing's an alien or a zombie or an alien zombie.)

Plus, if you see the words "Bud" and "Cardos" together...RUN! FOR GOD'S SAKE, RUN! (See's review of "Mutant.")

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
