BENEATH THE DARKNESS is a teen thriller in the style of Disturbia, with high school kids pitted against a psychotic villain in a community where adults refuse to see one of their own is a serial killer. The villain (Dennis Quaid) is a well-respected mortician in a town where he was once a legendary high school football star. But among the kids he is legendary for a more sinister reason - rumors that his house is haunted. The truth is more evil and much more dangerous - the town leader murdered his wife and her lover when he caught them having an affair, and now has secretly set up house with his wife's embalmed corpse. The local hero is a flesh-and-blood monster who buries his victims alive, a sociopath who befriends adults and police while openly flaunting his murderous intentions to the teens. He will kill anyone who threatens to expose him or his now-perfect marriage.

This movie has the old fashioned suspense instead of all the gore which is so popular today. One of my new favorite spook movies!

Nothing new or exciting here. Your run of the mill teen scream horror chiller. Creepy guy (Quaid) does some dirt, gets caught by some kiddos, violence ensues...barely worth watching even if you love horror flicks.

Mindless. Teenage. Nonsense. I should've known to avoid any movie with Dennis Quaid in it like The Plague. ZERO STARS.
