Libby Day is a lifeless woman who survived the massacre of her family in their farmhouse in the countryside of Kansas when she was eight. She's been living on donations and lectures ever since. Thirty years ago, the police believed that a satanic cult was responsible for the murder of her mother and two sisters, and her brother Ben was convicted with her testimony in court. Today, however, an acquaintance, Lyle Wirth, invites Libby to visit "The Kill Club", where amateurs investigate famous crimes, and she finds that they believe Ben is innocent. Libby needs money and, in return, accepts to revisit the slaughter of her family and comes up to the painful revelations and the ultimate truth.
Libby Day was only eight years old when her family was brutally murdered in their rural Kansas farmhouse. Almost thirty years later, she reluctantly agrees to revisit the crime and uncovers the wrenching truths that led up to that tragic night.
Charlize Theron stars as Libby Day, the sole survivor of the murder of her family, for which his brother Day is convicted for.
In a dire economical situation she accepts the help of a group called "The kill Club", which are basically a mix of crime scene junkies and an advocacy group that believe Ben is innocent of the heinous crimes.
The story unfolds in the present as in the past, with a barrage of characters from Libby and Ben's childhood who will help narrate the story thru flashbacks, and reconstructed scenes to put all the pieces together.
The movie has a very good supporting cast like Nicholas Hoult (X- Men: First Class), Chloë Grace Moretz (Carrie), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) and Corey Stoll (Ant-Man) among others... but even a good cast cannot make this movie work.
What got me to watch this movie is that the book it was based on was written by the same author as "Gone Girl" Needless to say my expectations were very high.
I found the movie very depressing, dark, it had a good mystery for a while but what killed it for me were two things:
1- The whole "occultism" thing, they made it too relevant as if it was almost a real thing, as if the murders were inspired by that, and not greed.
2- The finale was so rushed, I wasn't expecting a Sherlock Holmes diatribe or a Scooby Gang explanation, but after the detailed events of the tragic night (i'll give them that) it was in a rush to finish, and the report on TV did not help.
I think the cast did very well with what they were given, but unlike Gone Girl the director of Dark Places lacked vision to make this movie so much better. It is an story of how things can go wrong. Just like a plane crash, so many things should go wrong to lead a disaster.
Among latest movies that i saw, this one was really a moving one. Even after seeing its trailer, i didn't have any thoughts about how would the move go.
But after finishing it, i feel very close two the characters. How their life ruined with lies and ignorance.
I give the move 10 of 10.
Only one single question remains, why would Crystal (daughter of Ben) wanted to kill Libby?! Aside one final action scene, it could be written opposite and at the end, while Diondra wanted to kill Libby, she (Crystal) could stop her (in place of her dad, if even Ben was her dad).
Beside the final, i like the movie and suggest watching it. The payoff is a huge and telling visual howler, summarizing the entire plot with a blithe indifference that will inevitably mirror the audience's. In the book it explains that Patty Day had hired the hitman to kill her, she didn't specify how she wanted to die just that it would be quick- and on the agreement that no one would see. So in the book there's a knock on the door extremely late at night, she goes to answer it and the guy goes to stab her in the heart but he misses, ends up stabbing her a second time and then one of her kids see's so he kills her as well (Debby i think?). But obviously as far as Patty knows Libby will come to no harm as she leaves her in that room away from the killer and has arranged for her sister to come by very early the next morning to find her body. a5c7b9f00b
