  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film A Dark Song

    It's well put together, but left me with a couple of questions. How can she be pure if she smokes? Should she have made the right decision there at the end?

  2. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film A Dark Song

    Could’ve been tighter, with more focus on the occult bits than on the characters’ neuroses and Stockholm Syndrome. The ending is sooo Catholic and comes completely out of nowhere.

  3. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film A Dark Song

    2-3. The cliches that mar the ending really are a shame, given some of the scares the movie as a whole manages to drum up (loved the bits with the son's voice). But it is, overall, an intimate movie, if too slow, that rests on a natural conflict between a very human woman and her desire to be spiritual pure. It's a shame that the movie throws the male lead under the bus. But both are strongly acted, at least.

  5. sissy69's rating of the film A Dark Song

    started with strong visuals and a good set up but poor writing hobbled it thru the mess end.. yes..

  6. Mtume Gant's rating of the film A Dark Song

    2.5 Needed a strong ending for me to really buy into this film, it didn't get that ending so I didn't buy into it in the end

  7. Mariana Vilhena's rating of the film A Dark Song

  14. Adam Cross's rating of the film A Dark Song

    The set-up was interesting even if it was super slow but it just lost itself in the third act. and the ending? well...nevermind. I also couldn't take the guy with the West Country accent seriously at all, such an odd choice for no apparent reason. Watch Under The Shadow instead.

  15. Palmat's rating of the film A Dark Song

    A good and interesting yarn on angels, demons and magic. The set up and build up is very effective and enhanced by two great actors really delivering fine performances. Photo and sound design is also fitting and adds to the tone and mood. The end is a mixed bag of "been there done that" and inspired filmmaking. Still after the credits rolled I was left with a feeling this could have been more engaging than it was.

  16. Diego Ravazzolo's rating of the film A Dark Song

    Great premise, terrible ending. That fucking angel fucked everything up. 2.5 stars.

  17. João R's rating of the film A Dark Song

    Something quite interesting was attempeted to be done here. A story of redemption with a big heart that, unfortunately, it's preceded by a often preposterous ride. The ending is truly memorable.Perhaps it could have achieved more.

  18. Neil Kar-Wai's rating of the film A Dark Song

  19. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film A Dark Song

    Just for the ending and the laughs along the way.

  20. Levi Miah's rating of the film A Dark Song

    Some stunning visuals and seemingly heavily researched ideas that are disappointingly packaged into something too slow, that never comes close to as scary or emotional as the material it uses could be. Poor pacing leads to a finale that gives you everything it held back in the last 70 minutes in one burst that sucks all of the existential mystery out of the film.

  21. Artemis's rating of the film A Dark Song

    Some heavy-handed missteps here and there, but overall a fine addition to the British folk-horror genre.

  22. Matthew Martens's rating of the film A Dark Song
