A woman who wants to find closure goes down a very dark path with unpredictable consequences.
You have never seen more a elaborative and thorough preparation for something that could not sound, seem, and feel so wrong. IFC Midnight invests in a slow-burn thriller that writer/director Liam Gavin makes as real as they come. The amazing performances from both Steve Oram and Catherine Walker enhance that pseudorealism.
As the ritual progresses, inevitably, one question will constantly be coming to your mind: Is it working? A subsequent question then will be: Do you want it to work? Even better, should it work? Now, what you need to know is that the ritual performed in the film exists and is known as the Abramelin Operation. Certain parts of the rituals were deliberately left out, and Gavin asked the artists to change the symbols – for obvious reasons.
A Dark Song meticulously elaborates on a ritual that, whether you are a believer or not, you wouldn’t probably dare to perform. The ending is like anything you ever expected, so if you are going to find it exciting, thrilling, boring, or nonsensical cannot be predicted. All I can tell you is that will get your attention.
Highly recommended for every horror fan out there (with patience). Definitely worth your while!
