This movie looks like it came out of a web series and is now a full-length movie. It tells the story — four stories — on a stormy night, including tales of priests exorcising demons, an ancient evil, a group of friends facing their worst fears and two men entering a bar and only one surviving.
Filmmakers Jessica Morgan, Dustin Rieffer and Christopher M. Carter claim to have been influenced by Ari Aster, John Carpenter, Sam Raimi, Fedi Alvarez, Leigh Whannell, Ridley Scott, Robert Eggers and countless others.
The same team created One Night in October. If you enjoy the recent run of modern streaming anthology films, this will be right up your alley. It’s short and sweet but doesn’t add much new to the form. That’s fine — these movies are constantly coming out now and give opportunities to new horror directors to learn their craft with shorter stories.
Dark Chronicles is available on demand from Terror Films.
