We gave it a C

This horror/sci-fi item is so well-acted and intelligently paced that the filmmakers almost manage to camouflage the essential silliness of their scenario, which involves a prehistoric beast who lives under a cemetery and feeds on corpses. Alas, despite some decent scare sequences, The Dark is one of those cases where almost doesn’t count. Once research scientist Stephen McHattie slips into a coffin and plays dead to bait the beast, it’s chuckle time. C
