Beneath The Darkness

With Dennis Quaid, Aimee Teegarden, Tony Oller, Devon Werkheiser, Brett Cullen

Written by Bruce Wilkinson
Directed by Martin Guigui

Dennis Quaid doesn't usually take on the role of the villain. Here he plays a disturbed mortitian in a small Texas town (with the outward appearance of a stellar citizen).
When a group of school teens go to his house one night to check out rumours of its haunting, they see two figures dancing in the window. They decide to break in and investigate when he's out, and find a disturbing sight - he busts them with a fatal result.

This is not a who-done-it, as we know he's nuts, has killed before, and killed one of the friends in plain sight of another. But it is ruled an accident, so the kids set out to prove he's a nutter.

Not terrible, but far from great, this thriller is passable, but also forgettable.
