Format: DVD
My biggest disappointment is that the by-line reveals too much about the film. I will assume you have read it. The opening scene of Quaid burying alive his wife's lover was decent. It moves to a classroom scene where the discussion is about both Poe and Macbeth...nice tie-in.

Travis (Tony Oller) plays the moody teen lead who laments over his dead sister, and sometimes sees ghosts which he confides in cheerleader Abby (Aimee Teegarden). One night some of the teens, thinking Quaid isn't home, enter his mortician residence ghost hunting, only to find he is at home and has an unhealthy relationship with his dead, embalmed, not exactly buried wife.

The movie starts out like it is going to be a barn burner, then it slows and dies.

Parental Guides: infrequent F-bomb, no sex or nudity.

After watcing this dvd, may I say I was not really impressed, reason been the acting was abit amateurish and if it had not been for Dennis Quaids part in the film I would have given it less rating. One more or less knew what was coming before it happened,no I was very disappointed with the film and woul not recommend it as a good film to have agood evenings viewing. D Bowen

By Jules TOP 500 REVIEWER on 10 April 2013
Format: DVD
Beneath The Darkness is a formulaic horror/thriller about a disturbed & oddball Texan mortician Ely Vaughn (Quaid), who attracts the interest of a foursome of high school teens who suspect he is upto something sinister. As they spy on him & delve deeper, it results in terible consequences, and the local law are more inclined to believe a pillar of the community over four hormonal kids. But determined, the remaining trio are out for revenge, and make it they're personal mission to expose him for what he is. But at what cost ?

Overall the movie has it's moments thanks to a few tense & suspenseful scenes, but quite a few of them are poorly paced that it's easy to lose interest. While in other areas it's manages to be quite intelligent & not just a run of the mill cliche factory, as a particularly interesting sub plot rumbles underneath it, and comes to fruition really well at the finish. Despite not having any huge action moments, it's relatively well filmed as a whole for such a low budget movie. But in places it's quite obvious just how low the budget is, for example in a high school football match they craftily use the camera angles to not reveal that there is in fact only one football team playing on the field.

On the acting front, Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow) put's on a masterclass which eclipses his co stars. As he goes from sane to psycho so effortlessly, and revels in pouring on a mixture of humor & insanity in equal measure, putting his wild eyed stare & big grin trademark to good work.

By Benminx on 18 Nov 2012
Format: DVD
When a group of American teens decide to investigate the rumour that the local mortician's house is haunted, it results in a few shocking discoveries that I won't spoil here, suffice to say that Quaid's clean-cut nice-guy widower is a little mor unhinged than people give him credit for.
The film plays with the well-worn typical American horror staple of 'teens know the truth, nobody believes them, the psycho is out to get them'. In some ways, it handles this well - several sequences are enjoyably tense and entertaining. However, unfortunately many rely on the kind of ridiculously bad decision-making, 'don't go in there!' moments and stupid authorities that had become cliched over a decade ago. Quaid plays his crazy with an extra hock of ham, while the teens play it dead serious, and as a result his crazed killer, compulsively smoking his electronic cigarette, lights up the film whenever he appears. However with a plot that's rife with cliches, not especially inventive sequences, and an ending that's ridiculous and borrows heavily from several other movies, this is a weak entry that falls under 'just good fun' rather than 'terrific'.
