Horror Review: The Dark Tapes (2017)

Ghosts, spirits, creatures, demons and more from the paranormal world collide with rational curiosity.

As a fan of both found footage and anthology films I just knew that I had to see this movie.

The film is split up into five stories, taking us on a different journey with each one. There’s no repetitiveness here, each story stands on it’s own and I applaud the writers here for not dumbing things down and actually challenging the audience and making them think.
The films style is admittedly not for everyone, this is a sub genre you either love or hate but I do urge you to atleast give it a try. The great thing about anthology films is that if you don’t like one story then no problem, another one will be along soon enough that you might enjoy.

The acting is a range of wooden to fantastic but that’s expected with independent features, if I had to pick a favourite segment then I’d have to say it was “The Hunters and The Hunted” but I won’t ruin any surprises that this feature has in store for you.
This film is a¬†culmination of three years work and it’s certainly paid off, there’s word of a sequel already and I for one will definitely be looking out for it.¬†This is more than just background viewing, it demands your attention with its ambition and potential and it pays off.¬†
“The Dark Tapes” is an interesting and entertaining feature that only comes round once in awhile, it’s a big win for the independent scene.
