The Dark

Feature Film, AT/CA 2018, 95 min, eOmdU

A girl prowls in Devil’s Den, the darkest section of a deep forest: Mina is cursed to rage as a zombie there where she was buried. One day, Mina finds young Alex, likewise disfigured—and blind. Rather than killing him, she takes him on. With the methods of the horror genre and zombie films, Justin P. Lange achieves atmospheric depth, an oddly exciting and at the same time sensitive approach to a difficult theme.
