Seance (Killer In The Dark) Movie Review: It's So Bad It's Good

Reddit has done it again. An enthusiastic post on the site about a horror movie made in 2001 that never made it to theaters because it was so terrible is now getting a lot of attention. As I write this, the post has over 5,000 upvotes which means the movie is about to blow up. In the words of a Reddit user, "This is bad movie gold with cult movie potential." I couldn't agree more. Watch out Tommy Wiseau! Seance: Killer In The Dark might be the one to topple The Room off its title of being the worst movie ever.

Saying that Seance: Killer In The Dark is worse than The Room may be pushing it too hard. However, it can't be denied that the two belong in the same genre. The movies-that-are-so-terrible-they-are-good genre.

Killer In The Dark wanted to be a horror movie. Unfortunately, it turned into a comedy movie. The acting is bad. The effects are bad. In some instances, it seemed like they used MS Paint to create effects for blood and slash wounds.

It's an entertaining movie though. That is if you watch it for the laughs. There are unbelievably random and funny lines like, "So when we were kids, we would go to sleep at night, you know, like most kids do." Or, "You guys cannot even handle this dimension of life. How do you expect to handle the next one."

In a seance scene wherein the main characters were sitted around a circular table and the ghosts started rushing around, one of them mutters, "We're okay. They just want us to face the same direction, I think."

In short, Seance: Killer In The Dark is terrible but it's funny. So it's entertaining. And you can watch it for free on YouTube. It stars Corey Feldman, Mikki Padilla, Nick Bennett, Ryan Sjogren, Shannon Malone, and Amy Lotsi. Adam West also appeared in the film in a cameo role.
