Film Review: Dark Encounter (2019) shines a dazzling light

Carl Strathie’s 2019 science fiction drama ‘Dark Encounter’ takes a deeply troubled family and transforms their home into a terrifying, mind-melding nightmare. Borrowing from established horror and science-fiction tropes, this film’s tremendous ambition presents a profound rumination about about the human condition. But does ‘Dark Encounter’ succeed?

I discuss this – and much more – in the latest episode of ‘The Movie Affect’. I also suggest a possible reason why ‘Dark Encounter’ didn’t receive a far warmer reception from film critics around the world.
