Insomnia And Darkness Falls


Recommended Posts

If you haven't yet seen these, I can recommend Darkness Falls and Insomnia which are currently showing on Sky Movies in the UK.

Insomnia, from the director of Memento stars Al Pacino and Robin Williams in a cat and mouse serial killer thriller. Some nice photography (the film is set in Alaska), great performances and good plot.

Darkness Falls tells of a strange creature known as the Tooth Fairy which terrifies a small town and adds a whole new spin on the myth. Great cast, terrific effects and some downright scary moments! God help you if you see the Tooth Fairy!

Both films are very Millenniumistic for different reasons, I don't want to give too much away.

If you don't live in the UK, try these links for more info:

I'll be renting Insomnia soon; it's in my Netflix queue. It piqued my interest because it's directed by Christopher Nolan, whose Memento I loved.

Erin,

Thanks for that, I didn't realise there was an episode of the same name. What was it about?

Chrisnu,

I know you'll enjoy Insomnia, it was an excellent thriller. You can really pity Al Pacinio who suffers from lack of sleep due to the never ending daylight in Alaska whilst under extreme pressure. Its brilliant. I don't think I've seen Memento yet, myself.

Erin,

It was a 1st season episode.... about some kind of prehistoric insects that had been lying dormant in the trunk of a tree, which was cut down by loggers. (Illeagaly, I might add) This unleashed these tinly insects, which only swarmed at night, and whose bite was toxic enough to keep it's prey (this time, humans...namely, Mulder & Scully, and a few other people, investigating the dissapearance of several loggers) still long enough to coccoon it, and go back to extract nutrition from it... Like a spider. (though these flew like tiny nats)

Sound creey enough for ya'? :ghostface:

I was disappointed by Darkness Falls while I liked Insomina. Did anyone see the original Insomnia which the Al Pacino movie is a remake of? I know I did watch parts of the original movie years ago (It was made in Sweeden (or Norway) and starred Stellan Skarsgard).

Be Seeing You,
