      Audience Member Very suspenseful. Deserves at least a 70 on RT. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Worst movie I have ever seen. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Is this meant to be a Psycho homage--or a Psycho ripoff? Despite some appealing young characters and portrayals of parents and teachers as understanding adults, there are just too many plotholes to accept and you get far too much eye-rolling by Dennis Quaid in a performance that will make you long for the uniquely vulnerable touch of Anthony Perkins. Quaid is a Norman Bates with 0% of Norman's charm. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member It's good movie to watch Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Very confused by this film's ridiculously low scores. I mean, it is certainly no masterpiece, but I see blockbusters that are far worse every year. Dumb yourself down slightly and there are some darkly amusing moments to enjoy. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Eh. Dennis Quaid is the star. Enough said. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      William Goss Film.com A bore sprinkled with hints of hilarity, soon to be buried like so many of its characters. Jan 13, 2012 Full Review Rex Reed Observer You anticipate every scene before it happens and figure out every secret before it's revealed. Rated: 1/4 Jan 10, 2012 Full Review Austin Chronicle Rated: 2/5 Jan 7, 2012 Full Review Laura Hiros Rincón de cine ... the film leave much to be desired. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 1/5 Mar 16, 2018 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a pervasively underwhelming thriller that wears out its welcome almost immediately. Rated: 1.5/4 Mar 6, 2012 Full Review Heather Wixson Dread Central Steer clear of Beneath the Darkness if you've grown tired of the paint-by-number thrillers that seem to be plaguing the genre lately Rated: 2/5 Mar 3, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews
