Necessary Evil: Horror movie set in total darkness
Of Darkness is a 15 minute short that does its best to embody the spirit of Evil Dead. From the camera techniques to the simple fact that some teens find a ďbook of the dead,Ē I couldnít quite figure out if director Gary E. Irwin had created a homage to the ultimate cult classic or if he ripped it off. Either way, itís an effective short that utilizes the Hitchcock formula (or what I call it anyway) or not having to show the evil spirit i.e. villain. Granted, they didnít have the budget for some nutty specter, but leaving it in the dark, never allowing the audience to see whatís killing everyone makes it more effective and frightening. I wish more directors would use this approach, big budget or not. All too often people are spoon feed every image and fear in film, never allowing imagination to take place.
