"A surprisingly heartfelt slow-burn thriller. Dark feels like an old-timey Hitchcockian thriller that wouldn’t be out of place in a 1960s movie screen. Dante himself claimed in interviews that this was Basile’s intention, so I consider the film a success." -Bloody Disgusting  [Luiz H.C.]


"One of this year's stand-out highlights [at the Oldenburg Film Festival] was the world premiere of Nick Basile’s Dark, a study of depression masquerading as a psychological thriller, with actress Whitney Able (Monsters) giving a tour-de-force performance as a young woman stuck in New York during the 2003 blackout." -The Hollywood Reporter  [Karsten Kastelan]


"This one hit home, more than I expected. There are few thriller’s that are able to get under my skin, but Dark has perfectly managed that thanks to Elias’ screenplay and Basile’s direction.  The standout is Whitney Able, just fantastic, I couldn’t imagine anyone else pulling off this role." -HorrorMovies.ca  [Chris Savage]


"Breckenridge...does great work in her scenes, and the way she handles the relationship moments feels very real. Breckenridge, Michael Eklund, and Brendan Sexton III do great work in supporting roles, but this is truly a showcase of Able's abilities. If you go along for the ride it's a viewing experience that rewards you with the chance to watch an actress deliver an incredible performance." -Arrow In the Head on joblo.com  [Cody Hamman]


"An accurate portrayal of the madness that took place seconds/minutes after the blackout that left millions without electricity...giving me chills and sending a certain type of fear up my spine. The movie will leave viewers thinking about it long after it is finished." -HellHorror.com  [Florita A.]
