"Well, it doesn't give me any pleasure to post a negative review - but since no-one has written one yet, maybe I can warn some people off.

Dark Reprieve doesn't have an original premise, but I'll let that slide. However, there are plenty of other things to complain about.

This is low budget stuff, and it shows. It appears they found a good location and seemed dead set on doing something with it. Things go wrong right from the start - with the script. Basically two people wake up in a prison block, and don't know how they got there. This severely limits the locations we're going to get. So the two central characters sit and talk. And talk. And talk. And talk. At one point they even say: "We've tried every way to get out of here!" Well, you could have fooled me, because they hardly move! They sit and talk. And talk. The script was clearly at fault for this.

The acting hovers - probably - just on the right side of professional, although there are dips in form when this goes to being Z-grade. The camera work is boring - but when hardly anything is happening I don't know whose fault this is.

Now, interspersed with all this are some monsters. Real monsters. And that's enough about them because................

The film is intercut with some apparently unrelated footage of a beautiful woman (not the captive woman) being questioned about five murders. It's all a bit of a mystery until.............

The most ridiculous and stupid twist at the end.... extremely childish and dumb I was insulted (and that was after 90 or so minutes of taking insult after insult from the script).

So all in all - only watch this is you've truly nothing better to do. I like to support new horror, new directors, and new actors..... but all can, and hopefully will, do better than this. Because this one is really really poor.
