A mental patient [reed diamond]hopes an experimental drug will restore his memory, but it induces nightmares involving a monster and a murdered woman. What happens when Reed escapes from the mental hospital and agrees to help teen Shawn Pyfrom find out what his stepdad Greg Grunberg is hiding in his darkroom is the gist of this intriguing mystery thriller, with an effective ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great actors, interesting concept 14 Jan 2007
By Jason - Published on
The movie opens with a man (Reed Diamond) who had something horrible happen to him, he just doesn't know what, he cannot remember his name nor his past. After being a tester for a new drug, he starts having horrible visions of a mud-like monster. He meets a kid name Stanley, and they both become friends. The rest of the movie is about the man's, played by Reed Diamond, journey to recover his lost memories, and Stanley's quest to find out what his father is up too.

Lucy Lawless --everyones favorite warrior princess/Cylon -- plays the alcoholic mother, a victim of abuse, which is quite a different role than we are used to seeing from Lawless; she does it well. Greg Grunberg --Alias's Eric Weiss, and Heroes Matt Parkman, also plays a very good, and different role than he has played in the past. In this movie he is the sadistic husband of Lucy Lawless. The acting is great, the plot isn't the most original, nor all that scary, but is entertaining, and stays interesting throughout its length.

This is a straight to DVD release. As such it doesn't have that high of a budget, you should not be expecting a masterpiece, but this movie does deliver quite a bit. I'm giving this four stars because the actor's performances are great and the concept is intriguing. Fans of Lucy Lawless and Greg Grunberg should have no problems nor regrets buying this DVD.

I don't want to give to much away, but if you enjoyed films like "The Jacket", "The Butterfly Effect" or the directors other movie "Room 6" you should pick this up.

4.0 out of 5 stars A thriller of a movie with a twist. 6 Feb 2007
By Jean Houses - Published on
I purchased Darkroom anticipating another Boogeyman type movie, you know a horror, scary type movie with laughs. Well it's more a pyscho drama with a whodunit twist instead, even the title of the movie is a bit of a mystery. I did enjoy the movie, Michael does a good job with keeping you engaged in trying to figure out the mystery disappearances of several characters. Lucy does a very credible job of neglected wife considering this role is a huge departure from anything she's ever done. The main character has some major issues to resolve in his life and in the end I'm still not sure if he resolves them. Overall, good acting, a few scary moments, and a twist at the end to keep you guessing.

4.0 out of 5 stars FLASHY CAMERA 6 Jan 2007
By Michael Butts - Published on
THE DARK ROOM is a stylish, brooding little thriller that is original and well performed. Even though the movie has a large gaping plot hole (e.g., how could someone at age 15 disappear and apparently no one searched for him?), it maintains its interest and has a surprising, although predictable, finish.

Reed Diamond stars as a man who has been institutionalized for 15 years and has no memory of his life up to that point. He is given a new experimental drug which apparently doesn't work so he escapes, desperate to find his identity.

He befriends a 15 year old boy named Stanley (Shawn Pyfrom) who lives with his mother (an unrecognizable Lucy Lawless) and her brutish husband (Greg Grunberg), who is the boy's stepfather. Grunberg seems to be a camera nut, very protective of his dark room. Stanley enlists Diamond's help in finding out where his stepfather goes at night.

The film has an eerie atmosphere and Diamond and Pyfrom are quite good. There is a frightening monster presence, and overall, THE DARK ROOM is refreshingly different in today's cookie cutter horror films.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am going to be honest here 23 May 2007
By Mark - Published on
When the movie stated, I thought ok, this is going to be a good movie. As it went on, I started to see "the creature from the black lagoon" image. I just rolled my eyes and went "oh boy". I continued to watch the movie "just for kicks" and was very pleasantly suprised when it ended with the ending. I started to think about the movie after seeing it and thought, "wow, that was a good movie". It was very well acted and the story was a unique one. What I do like to see in movies that are being made is the stories "a little different" from the rest of them. Yes, the movie is a little like the Sixth Sense but is just different enough to put an exciting twist to things. I highly recommend this movie to anyone that likes a "little twisted plot" to movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strangely, It Is A Good Movie 13 May 2007
By Bradlee Westphal - Published on
To start with it appears to be just another B-grade horror flick complete with a lame storyline. However as you progress through, the story becomes more twisted and strange until your just not quite sure what is going on. There isn't a lot of action and the movie has it's cheesy moments, but overall it's actually quite watch-able. There are a few actors some will notice from Heroes and Desperate Housewives along with the biggest name, the reason most likely that you looked at this movie in the first place, is Lucy Lawless aka Xena. Although her role isn't an important one, she is there quite often, more so than you would expect for a supporting actor role.

If you have a sharp eye and keen intuition, you'll follow the story and pick up on the clues as the movie progresses. And although the ending was lame, it was in all, necessary to complete the story and leave it somewhere where the audience would be happiest. This was a fairly decent movie, but definitely watch it if your a Lucy fan.
