Really a Well Done Movie With a Creepy Plot

It had been many years since I first saw this movie. Probably about 15 years, but I remember the premise was genuinely freaky and a few scenes stained themselves in my head. Finally after all these years I just got done watching the movie and had to sit through the credits to realize that the movie had ended.

The plot is that it is 2024 and a spaceship is out by the moon. A team is doing their normal routine when they have a power failer. This causes for the ship to not supply them with oxygen. So while they are trying to fix the problem a ship appears out of nowhere that is 30 years old and lands itself in front of them. Apparently the old ship is still functioning and they decide to use the oxygen supply from that ship and that is where everything starts to go wrong.

I was struck with this weird feeling after the movie was over and I wasn't sure whether or not I liked this movie. It took me about 10 minutes of thinking about this film before I realized that it was really good. The story is good, the acting is good, and the ending is incredibly creepy. I would have to recommend this movie to fans of both horror and sci fi because it really was a very good melding of both styles. In a way, I can see where Event Horizon may have got some of its ideas. 8/10 stars

A well done 'B' movie

Dark Side is quite an original story and deserves a merit for being a well written sci-fi film, apart from inheriting a B movie 'feel' about it. It parallels nicely with Event Horizon and Sphere as a movie that fits into the "crisis on a ship" genre. Joe Turkel from Blade Runner is particularly worth watching out for and Leslie the computer has interesting links with HAL from 2001.

A Good Example

This film just goes to prove what can be done without big stars, a huge Hollywood budget and unnecessary CGI effects. A good story, (if a little iffy), relatively good acting and an air of claustrophobic suspense beaten only by 'Alien'. OK, it's cheap and nasty, but look at the budget Star Wars was filmed on! This movie has no delusions of grandeur, it just delivers within it's own limitations. The basic premise is this, the Devil has to collect 666 souls to re-enter or defy Heaven. He's been using the Bermuda Triangle to collect these souls. This being the future a tenuous link is created between the Triangle and the dark side of the Moon. As it turns out, the crew of a space missile repair team would just complete the numbers. After major systems failures the crew encounter a derelict space shuttle, thought lost, (in the Bermuda Triangle), 20 years before. They board it in the hopes of finding vitally needed supplies and instead find a crew member, dead but perfectly preserved, except for a strange, triangle shaped hole in his stomach. Little realising that this mysterious corpse is in fact the manifestation of the Devil come to collect His final souls, they take the body aboard and begin repairs to their own ship. THIS is where the film really begins!! Using their own fears and desires against them, the Devil "body-hops" from one crew member to another, creating an atmosphere of paranoia and distrust, a la The Thing, intent on nothing but collecting His final souls and 'having it out' with The Powers That Be. Granted, the plot has more holes in it than a super-size colander and the effects are on a par with Space:1999, (which still makes it better than Buck Rogers and Battlestar Galactica!), but this is a fantastic movie which deserves far more attention than it got. I first saw this in the graveyard slot on Sky, between midnight and 6am, back in '92, and I don't think I've even seen it at the very back of a video shelf since, certainly not on any market stalls, which I think is a damn shame for a fine movie sadly overlooked. If you get the chance, WATCH THIS FILM. OK, it's easy to spot what it's mimicking and to make fun of the effects, but this is a darn good way to spend 90 minutes and remember what films where when they weren't just an exercise in computer programmers skill, or lack thereof.
