review by
Mike Haberfelner

Money's tight for TV journalist Wes (Brendan McLemore), his sister Vera (Elena Ontiveros) and their little brother Ethan (Jackson Lee Turner), ever since the death of their parents, so when they find a cheap house somewhere in the country that's big enough for the three of them, they don't think twice and move in, not at all aware that many a brutal murder has happened in the house in years past. When they find a ring in the house that looks valuable, they try to sell it to the local antiques shop, but upon seeing the ring the store owner, Alfred (Philip Neil Parker), tosses them out and urges them to leave their house - which strikes them as odd, but then again they aren't really familiar with local customs. Rather liking the ring, and figuring he won't be able to sell it, Wes starts to wear it. In the ensuing weeks, lots of work at the TV station is heaped onto Wes's shoulders so he's hardly at all at home - when Vera and Ethan begin to explore more and more spooky phenomena - but when they tell Wes, he's unwilling to believe them and always has a "rational" explanation for things - and he's even backed up by Vera and Ethan's psychiatrist (Jenni Wood). This gets Vera so out of her mind that she calls upon the one person who has warned them of their house, antiques dealer Alfred, who along with his parapsychologist wife (Angela Moore) and their ghosthunting team agrees to do a séance at the house, a séance that goes so horribly wrong that at the end of which even doubter Wes is convinced there's something horribly wrong with the house. Thing is, apparently whatever it is has to do with above-mentioned ring - that he's unable to take off, and thus a dark force slowly takes possession of him ...

 

Moving along at a deliberately slow pace and relying on atmosphere and the underlying mystery that's only resolved in a by-the-by way, Dark Entities turns out to be a pretty cool piece of haunted house horror, a film that leaves one in the dark for long while keeping one engaged by lingering suspense and well-placed shocks. And a solid cast playing well fleshed-out characters, guided by a genre savvy directorial effort deliver a supremely creepy piece of genre cinema.
