Dark Places

Dark Places ★½

This movie sucked so badly, I legit erased any memories of it when I watched it back in 2015, according to Letterboxd?
Truth be told though, the novel written by Gillian Flynn isn't good either. Both mediums fail in letting the audience immerse themselves into the bleak story, due to poorly written, overstylized and extreme characters (which was a tad better in the book, because it could take its time for development at least). I can't really blame the movie for the shortcomings of the story it's based on when knowing this. The cinematic indie-approach the adaption took suits the movie, but it cannot manage to keep one interested over its length.
