I stumbled upon this 2021 movie titled "Dorcha" (aka "The Darkness") and I have to say that I hadn't even heard about it, but of course with it being a new horror movie, then of course I sat down to watch it. And let me just say that writer and director Tharun Mohan did not deliver an impressive movie here. The storyline was just way too much of a scrambled heap of semi-coherent muddle. It was so difficult to get submerged into the storyline. And it didn't really help much that the pacing of the movie was slow and rather uneventful. The characters in the movie were fairly lackluster and didn't really come off as being anything more than rigid puppets milling about in what tried to be a proper storyline. It was a shame, though, that the actors and actresses weren't given any proper material to work with here. For this being a horror movie then the movie was just awfully devoid of anything scary or even remotely on the brink of being proper horror. So for an avid horror fan such as myself, then "Dorcha" was a mere stroll in the park. Not a good stroll, mind you, as the trek was just way too bland, pointless and boring. My rating of "Dorcha" lands on a generous three out of ten stars. This movie was just not worth the time, money or effort. Do yourself a favor and give the movie a wide berth, especially if you enjoy horror movies, because this movie was such a weak addition to the horror genre.
