Episode 2

The Darkness (2016)

Film Trace is a new podcast where we trace the life of a film from conception to production all the way to release and reception.

This week's episode is The Darkness, newly released on Netflix.

We cover how horror film upstarts George McLean and Jason Blum joined forces to bring us one of the most mediocre horror films of the last decade. The micro-budget film starring Kevin Bacon and Radha Mitchell attempts to build on the haunted house tradition of Paranormal Activity and The Conjuring. Instead, we get a mushy melodrama with the edge of the blunted knife. 

Join us for the perilous journey into The Darkness.
