Sometimes things have to die

Libby Day (Charlize Theron) has trouble remembering events on the night her family was murdered. Her testimony put her brother Ben (Tye Sheridan) in jail. He was accused of molesting an eleven year old girl and he was a Satan worshiper hanging out with the wrong crowd. Years after the deed, Libby is running low on funds and contacts the Kill Club who want to investigate the murders. They believe Ben is innocent. Libby is reluctant to help. As she starts to look at the material, she too is sucked into the mystery.

The film uses flashbacks to recreate what happened in the past. It drops clues, in fact it drops enough clues, that you have more suspects than a half dozen Scooby-Doo episodes...including Ben. The film is based on a popular novel by the same name. It takes place in Kansas and moves at a pace that strings you along as the clues and flashbacks ooze out slowly.

Guide: F-bomb. Sex. Near stripper nudity.

Ridiculed thriller without merits

There seemed to be a lot of reviews comparing "Dark Places" with "Gone Girl". I would rather separate them apart because I indeed like "Gone Girl". Moreover, "Gone Girl" ultimately delivered thrills and chills which "Dark Places" failed to.

Psychopathic scenarios are often employed into thriller movies. Some of them indeed horrified you to the essences. The reason this one did not work is it attempted to resonate the audience with the reality. No one will be bothered by the possible reality of "Gone Girl" while watching it. Moreover, just like those successful others, "Silence of Lamb", "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" even "The Girl on the Train" were focusing on the unbelievably coincident plots which would not have possibilities happened in the real life eve when all the stars line up in the universe.

Documentaries are for the reality. Even though they are still implemented with some explainable coincidences to entice audiences. Directors only have one choice to make great thrillers which is to bring those impossibly horrorfied stories to the screen without concerning the reality of them. That probably is the key to produce the big box office hit.

I was like meh throughout the entire movie....

I just read the book and decided to watch the movie, thinking that with this strong compelling story the film would be great. Wrong. It was so flat and boring it made me forget how good the story really was. I didn't have any problem with the casting (especially with young Ben Day, I think he was really good) but the whole tone of the film was stiff and had me saying "whatever...". The music wasn't good, the characters were so one dimensional and what really bugged me was the flashback scenes and the fact that there was no other suspects. In the book you keep changing your mind about who's the killer every chapter but in the movie it's pretty clear from the start. The flashbacks did not portray what was really going on, so when we slowly uncover the truth we do not really care... Even the scene of the murders were plain and boring. I don't understand how could someone take this story and turn it into this. So disappointed. I know that in order to make a movie you have to cut a lot of things out of a book, but it feels like it lost its great character, their emotions and the mood. Finally I forgot to mention that the casting for today's Ben Day character was so wrong.
