Reviews
Stunning, creative, Horror-Sci-fi Anthology
I was anticipating the release of this movie from the beginning of 2017. When it came out, I had high hopes for it. I wasn't disappointed. The Dark Tapes has a clever way of connecting each of the four stories together and each one shines a unique light on a specific genre within the horror universe. If you liked southbound and V/H/S, you will love The Dark Tapes.

Why is this rated so high?
So, I'm a pretty big fan of point-of-view films, I think they have a great potential to make the inane quite horrifying, but this film really does nothing for the genre. Seeing the amount of awards it has raked in, the amount of good reviews, I just had to see it. Boy oh boy was I disappointed.

If you can ignore the special effects and costumes that are so bad you can see parts of them literally peeling off, and the visual effects so bad you can see they were done in an amateur editing program (where they didn't even change the font from the default), then maybe this is something for you.

It has a few novel concepts, but never really goes anywhere with them, save for one disturbing segment that could have been something if they hadn't throw in something supernatural to tie it in with the rest.

In one segment they mention that time has frozen and thus they can't even hear their own footsteps... But you can clearly still hear them. Is this a joke?

'THE DARK TAPES': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

An indie anthology horror flick, which interlocks four different tales of creatures, demons, ghosts and other things in the paranormal world. The film runs 98 minutes long, and it was made on a budget of just $65,000. It also features an ensemble cast (of mostly unknown actors) lead by Cortney Palm. First time feature filmmakers Michael McQuown and Vincent J. Guastini directed and co-produced the flick. McQuown also wrote the script (he previously co-wrote 2005's 'THE PERFECT MAN') and he also served as the film's editor and cinematographer as well. I found it to be a mostly well made, and impressive little indie horror flick; highlighted by Cortney Palm's performance.

The movie contains four different chapters, each telling a different supernatural tale. One revolves around a couple experiencing paranormal activities in the house they recently moved in to. Another story tells the tale of two lesbian lovers, that make a living performing sexual activities online (for paying customers), and one begins blacking out and not remembering certain strange experiences. Another story involves a woman who's raped at a party, and she then becomes obsessed with stopping persistent unwanted paranormal intruders. A fourth story is intercut between the others, and it revolves around three paranormal investigators, that take their investigations into uncharted new dangerous territory.

The movie is a little too slow-paced, drawn-out, and a tad too over complicated in places. For a film made on just a $65,000 budget though, I think it's mostly impressive. I love indie horror flicks like this, especially well made anthologies. This one delivers some nice effects, some cool dark imagery, and some pretty clever twists; it just sometimes takes a little too long to get to them. The acting, with the exception of Palm, is pretty amateurish though. The film probably won't become a cult classic of any kind, but I think it's still definitely worth the rental price. I bought it on Amazon Video for $9.99, and I don't regret it.

Amazing Found Footage Experience
I liked it so much I'm here actually writing a review about it wishing I could see more. Every noise in the dark of my room has me on edge. I almost can't even sit here and write this because I feel vulnerable not being in my bed covered with blankets. I am trying to think of the fastest thing to write so I can not have to sit here anymore. It was a very creative found footage movie. If there was any criticism I had it's that every segment had a very similar tone in the same way an artist's new album can sometimes almost be too consistent. Like every song sounded the same. But at least it was a good song!

was very surprised at this one
didn't know what to expect going into this, though i had decently high hopes since any found footage that gets higher than a 4 on IMDb tends to be pretty damn good (for some reason its trendy to hate movies, especially found footage). this one reminds me of VHS since its several stories that range from demons to aliens to just evil people. each story wasn't overly complicated and each one gave you just enough information so your not sitting confused wondering about the little things. this is one you should give a chance, its worth it. plus its only an hour and a half so its not a real long one. i definitely recommend it.

Well Worth the Wait
I first found out about the Dark Tapes through a suggested ad on Facebook, and have been following the anticipated release of this title now for a few years. I finally had the opportunity to sit down and watch it, excited for the key-moments in the initial trailer that had piqued my interest.

As a fan of Lovecraftian fiction, I found that this film in particular played on the same themes and ideas that generally play out in any of H.P. Lovecraft's stories: paranormal or unexplained phenomena that is built upon a foundation of almost-scientific transmogrify. In a way, I am reminded of Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal--" albeit, satire-- where an idea or story so profoundly horrific is presented but utilizes empirical factors to present the case, and tie the whole story together.

I'm not typically a fan of the "found-footage" genre of movies, wherein the usual tropes of "jump scares" are overdone time and time again, and the Dark Tapes avoids these played out clichés and focuses solely on the stories which it presents. It attempts to distance itself from other similar titles within the same genre, I feel, and it cements itself as something entirely unique.

Whereas I can understand that this film might not be for everybody-- especially those who have a keen eye for production elements-- if you are someone who enjoys stories and imagery that works to get inside of your head and leaves you asking questions than this movie is definitely for you.

I long anticipated this title, and I was not disappointed; I only hope that there will be more like this in the future.

Surprisingly entertaining
I really did not expect to like this movie! I thought it was going to be pretty bad...but it was actually fun to watch! It has moments that would make you go "hmmm.." but everything else is pretty good. Like the other users said, if you love found footage movies, you'll enjoy this one.

Cheap looking, poor acting, and terrible editing. The practical effects were okay, but that's it.
I love anthology films, especially when they are of the horror variety, but this one was just a complete failure from beginning to end. The acting was atrocious for most of the segments, the script was inane and poorly realized, and the way the film was edited was so amateurish, I wonder if the director hired one of his kids to do it. The only saving grace about this film was the SFX. Some of the creatures really did look frightening, and had the film focused more on them, it wouldn't have been so bad. Instead, we got a lot of crappy acting, a lot of simplified dialogue, and some horrendous pacing. Not a quality film in the slightest, anyone would do themselves a favor and avoid this travesty and never speak of it again.

Fresh take on found footage
The Dark Tapes is a four story horror anthology. I'm a big fan of horror anthologies and the stories in this one are all original and had surprise endings that I didn't see coming. There are a lot of found footage films out there, but The Dark Tapes felt fresh and was the most unique found footage film I've seen in a long time. The stories are well written and entertaining and I think this film proves that you don't have to have a big budget to make a good movie. There are some genuinely creepy moments and not a whole lot of blood and gore,so I would think this film would appeal to a wider audience than some of your "typical" horror films. This movie is anything but typical. If you like horror and want to see found footage presented in a new way, definitely check out this anthology. It's a lot of fun.

It's not a movie
This is not a movie. It's a collection of short clips with no correlation to each other.

It employees infamous actors and perhaps low budget director as well. There are no connection between one story to another. It just shows a bunch of jump-scares effect, but without any terrifying stuff. In one of the scene, you can clearly see an actor with a part-ghost part-monster costume. Surely, it's a low budget movie with very low quality story line.

I wonder this could ever be on theaters? And who would even want to pay to watch it?
