Darkroom.Michelle takes a job recommended by her counselor that lands her trapped in a mansion with three psychotic siblings hell bent on purging Michelle of her sins.
Michelle has a chip on her shoulder since killing three of her friends by taking the wheel while drunk. Pouting with crossed arms, Michelle huffs and sighs while going through the motions and jumping through her therapist Rachel’s hoops at a rehabilitation center. And why should she make an effort at showing remorse? The accident was not her fault, after all. If her loudmouth boyfriend hadn’t been acting like such a pill, she never would have been distracted. That is how Michelle sees it anyway.
Needless to say from that description, Michelle is a tough nut to have any sympathy for. “Darkroom” starts behind the eight ball with an arrogant protagonist who thinks she is above redemption. Unwilling to accept her own culpability for a fatal car wreck, her perpetually sour attitude is in need of adjusting. So when Rachel recommends Michelle for a modeling gig that leads to imprisonment in a homegrown torture dungeon, Michelle might be getting what she deserves. What the audience deserves is a story and a presentation with more sense than what “Darkroom” has to offer.
On the production design front, “Darkroom” has the torture horror sub-genre down pat. Peeling paint, cold brick, and industrial filth create a subterranean lair that would bring a tear to Jigsaw’s eye. The lighting and camera work is just as spot on for a “Saw” wannabe. “Darkroom” tries breaking free from that clone accusation as much as possible, but the plot is not as clever as it thinks it is to make that distinction.
