The Darkness (Anna Paquin; filmed in 2001, release pending) is a movie that I downloaded completely by accident. Usually, I delete these from my hard drive, full of wrath that I had been duped into thinking it was something else. But it gripped my attention fron the first ten seconds and wouldn't let go.

After watching it, I deem it the most terrifying movie I've seen. Ever.

It has the mess-with-your-psyche, disturbing qualities of "The Ring", but without any of the cheesiness that nearly spoiled that film. The characters are acted realistically and lifelike, which makes you worry for their well-being--putting yourself in their shoes that much more. The music, story, and effects have all been done before, but never with the surgical precision and sweat-inducing eye for detail cranked to such intimidating proportions.

Why have I never heard of this movie? And has anyone else here? Am I alone? There seems to be almost no information on it, and yet it has the production value of a major summer blockbuster. If you ever get a chance to see it, by any means possible, do so.

To tell the truth (and I promise I'm not advocating warez here) I was after "Elf" ;)

Speaking of the band, bring back the hair bands! I want the 80s again!

"The Ring" or the proper version "Ring" along with "Ring 0" and "Ring 2" cause the proper versions really sorta screwed with my head

if you accidentaly download, is that kind of like an accidental suicide?
