Pitch Black (2000) Review for Halloween Horror Fest

There’s some big solar eclipse in America today, right? Well, I tried to think of something eclipse-related that I could reblog today but the closest thing I could think of was my review of that shitty Pitch Black movie. So here it is! Enjoy the eclipse, America. We’ll probably all be plunged into eternal darkness soon anyway the way things are going… Happy Monday! 😉

Halloween Horror Fest:

I’ve watched most of the films now for my Halloween Horror Fest and just have to finish writing up the rest of the reviews. I’ve loved a couple and hated a couple. I didn’t love Pitch Black… Here’s the list of films I’ve watched so far:

From Beyond (6/10)

The Descent (8/10)

ParaNorman (7.5/10)

Pitch Black

Insidious

Dog Soldiers

Grabbers

The Innkeepers

Nosferatu (1922)

Sisters (aka Blood Sisters)

Still to watch:

Berberian Sound Studio

High Tension (maybe…)

There was a lot of talk about Pitch Black as whatever number…

  1. I actually liked this movie. I remember watching it, the first time, shortly after college. Well, two years. My new boss was reviewing it to determine if it was good to show for one of the classes at the Jail. She is a big fan of science fiction and knew I liked it too. I remember analyzing it like a literature. I remember saying it might not be the greatest film but that I liked it and that it was interesting if you view it from a literary aspect. I then broke it down. I have no memory just how I broke it down and to this day wish I had written it out. This was a verbal conversation. It was really good. But I have no way to prove it now. It is one of those little things in life I regret. I was really proud of that particular view of this film.

    • Aw, I’d love to hear that review! 🙂 This is such an odd film… I CAN see why it has its fans. I loved the look of it. There’s so much potential here. I think that the characters just drove me nuts…

  2. One more thing – the scenario of Pitch Black was originally supposed to be used for Alien 3, but something didn’t work out, so later Twohy re-edited it and made his own movie.
