Dark days with the crazy sheep

Dark days with the crazy sheep; SEAN BEAN ON THE HORROR MOVIE THAT PITS HIM AGAINST DEMENTED FARM ANIMALS HERE IN WALES.(Features)

Daily Post (Liverpool, England); 4/1/2006

IN the past few years Sean Bean has barely stopped working. He's starred in one of the biggest blockbusters of all time, The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, and in the past year alone has made four back-to-back movies.

But, surprisingly, it wasn't that long ago that offers dried up for the talented actor after a stint playing TV swashbuckler Sharpe.Collapse )

Ghastly Review - The Dark

GHASTLY REVIEW

THE DARK (Sony Pictures)

Reviewed by AUDREY QUARANTA

Audrey sez…

MOVIE: 3½ skulls
DVD PACKAGE: 1½ skulls

On a DVD that lacks today’s typical array of special features, the movie itself has to (gasp!) carry the entire package. THE DARK is a far-from-perfect film, but its positive aspects are strong enough to hold this disc’s head above the icy Welsh waves.

THE DARK, directed by John (GINGER SNAPS) Fawcett, is about Adele (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE’s Maria Bello), a woman who moves to the Welsh countryside with her daughter Sarah (Sophie Stuckey from CLOSE YOUR EYES) to live with her estranged husband James, played by Sean (THE LORD OF THE RINGS) Bean. When Sarah drowns mysteriously off the coast, Adele begins hearing her daughter’s disturbing cries for help and searches for their source. What she uncovers is a web of dark secrets—a religious cult, mass suicide and an underwater portal to the Dark, the Celtic afterlife, where she must face pure evil in hopes of using the rule “One of the living for one of the dead” to get Sarah back.Collapse )
