I Will Follow You Into the Dark (2012)

Sophia has all but given up on finding true love when a twist of fate introduces her to her soul mate. Adam is everything she could have ever hoped for, but she awakens one night to find that he has disappeared, with all clues pointing to the mysterious and haunting past that surrounds his apartment complex. Can Sophia find the strength within herself to rescue her one true love from the edge of darkness? Mark Edwin Robinson weaves a tragic tale of love and loss in I WILL FOLLOW YOU INTO THE DARK, starring Mischa Barton and Ryan Eggold. The opening act delves deeply into a number of themes, which explore everything from the loss of faith to grief and true love. Robinson goes to great lengths to prove the bond between Sophia and Adam, but the extended exposition seems wasted after Adam's sudden disappearance. The entire framework of the story could have easily been condensed in order to drive the plot forward at a faster pace to entice the audience. Instead, we forget that we are watching a Horror movie, and the sudden appearance of demons and ghosts seems oddly out of place as the characters enter the spirit world towards the end of the film. I WILL FOLLOW YOU INTO THE DARK produces a number of truly haunting moments, however, in addition to its stunning cinematography and heartfelt performances. If nothing else, the film provides a soft horror twist for romance fans.

Rating: 6/10.
