  2. Martin De Martin's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    La periferia, gli adolescenti che scorrazzano in bicicletta, i primi amori. Ci sono tutti gli ingredienti del coming of age a là "Stand by me", solo che stavolta le cose vanno male, molto male fin da subito. Cinema bello tosto che non fa sconti e che riesce a funzionare alla grande senza far leva sul solito ruffiano effetto nostalgia. Il cupo ed azzeccatissimo score di Ben Frost è solo la ciliegina sulla torta.

  3. kakaok's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    It was only inches from being the epitome of the modern exploitation cinema. No, fuck it, it is essential. It is almost like Halloween. WHOAT A MOVIE!!!! what a soundtrack! blew me away. Kevin Phillips is here to stay for a long time, maybe as long as John Carpenter.

  4. Jason's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    That SUPER DARK TIMES director Kevin Phillips has worked extensively as a cinematographer in addition to directing clearly shows; the attention to individual images here means we never forget that we are watching something that has been carefully thought-out. The viewer is obligated to suspend disbelief early if he or she wishes to ride the crazed climax. There is a thoughtful coda, thankfully, and it is redemptive.

  5. Danu Labda's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    Wtf happened with recent Netflix films?? Starts ok or well but it ends without any consideration for it's viewers.

  6. Beatrice Lorenzini's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    Peccato, perché per un po' ti illude.

  7. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    Good drama albeit with a list of short comings. We've seen this story before and better executed and personally I´m sick and tired of american "indie aesthetics" with slo-mo sequences and moaning and droning soundwork used to convey feelings and mood. The cast is very good and it starts out right but descends into mediocracy and stock melodrama only to tack on a nonsensical thriller ending. Good effort tho...

    You can hide from my sword!

  12. Bob's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    Dreadful style and sustained direction brings naturalistic approach into a small town and early 90s setting. The cast brings protagonists that seem real and fractured to the point of disturbance. Unfortunately, the characters are underdeveloped to the point where "less is more" is turned into half-baked plot that slowly looses its course - and it ends up being cheap compared to the rich beginning.

  13. The Macho King's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    Started out pretty good, then slowly descended into lackluster tropes, eye rolling twists, and ends in a very boring fashion that wraps things up TOO neatly. Kevin Phillips has a interesting eye when it comes to the visual/composition ect while also being able to maintain a foreboding mood/sense of dread that hangs over the film & it's characters throughout. Props for capturing the period nicely. Also TwistedMetal 2.

  14. ughchenausea's rating of the film Super Dark Times

  15. João R's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    While it's easy to doubt its "cult" praise, it's hard to deny that this is a very pleasant tale with a lot of unexplored themes and potential.

  17. Stanislav Lukianov's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    awesome, River's Edge meets Paranoid Park

  18. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    Super Dark Times is a deeply unsettling '90s coming-of-age nightmare. Everything about the world we're watching in the film feels intentionally off for the sake of tension; and there are some visuals that are going to stick with me for awhile. There's a Sword of Damacles reference that's absolutely brilliant. AND it's a Christmas movie, so perfect holiday season thriller to be watching.

  19. Dan's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    Phillips crafts an excellent and uncomfortable nightmare with all their sad little faces.

  20. nadnab's rating of the film Super Dark Times

  21. Tiago Gonçalves's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    This is so visually appealing, funny and twisted. The loss of innocence and the delicacy of its process contrasts with Ben Frost abrasive soundtrack and stylish slow-mo sequences. A feast for the senses!

  22. Sara Castro's rating of the film Super Dark Times

  23. Onbestendig's rating of the film Super Dark Times

  24. spasmolytic's rating of the film Super Dark Times

    Bad title. It's never going to be the cult classic some claim it will, but for a debut feature it's definitely impressive. The director shows a lot of promise. The actor who played the killer could go places too.
