YMMV / Darkness Falls

  • Harsher in Hindsight: The lead character, portrayed by Chaney Kley, is afraid to go to sleep because of his recurring nightmares. Kley died prematurely at age 34 from sleep apnea.
  • Narm: "Use your flashlights!"
  • What Could Have Been: There was a slew of different ideas for the film, especially with how Matilda was gonna look. Unfortunately Executive Meddling ruined a lot of these plans.
  • What an Idiot: The town's people that kick started the damn story: While understandably freaked two kids went missing and Matilda was known to be close to the children, their first thought was to go on a lynch hunt and kill her. It makes it worse when the next day, the two kids turned with no damn injuries.
