Review: Dark Was the Night (2015) 

Kevin Durand makes a huge impression on the Grue-crew with his starring role in DARK WAS THE NIGHT. The Black Saint praises the character driven plot and the actors that bring the film to life. Doc and Thomas are less impressed but praise Durand agreeing that they want to see more from this terrific actor. In Doc’s opinion, the creature effect have him longing for the days of Pumpkinhead and the like – perhaps, he’s a bit too curmudgeon.
