Sophia (Catherine Walker) is grief-stricken and overwhelmed with sadness since the untimely death of her child. In a desperate attempt to achieve some form of closure, she reaches out to Solomon (Steve Oram), an occultist with experience in an ancient invocation ritual that Sophia believes will allow her to make contact with her deceased child. Locked away in a remote country house, the pair undergo a long and arduous ritual, risking both their mental and physical safety as they attempt to access a world beyond their understanding. But when Solomon finds out that Sophia has not been truthful about her wish, a greater danger threatens them. In the dark, they find that they are no longer alone in the house. They are now in the world of real angels, and real demons.
The sound quality is good and it is one of those dark slow menacing films. I thought I would not enjoy it but I got interested and enjoyed it. Although at the end I was left thinking what actually happened. It's different to the slash and gore fests and has an interesting storyline. The characters are odd balls and the film keeps you guessing as to where it is actually going. Worth a watch.

Strange film - but worth a watch
- A Dark Song review by CD
The interaction between the main character and the occultist is interesting and keeps the film moving, The director has the usual problem of how to progress an occult type film without bringing in standard horror fare. I was ok with how it resolved itself but if you are looking for a lot of scary moments then this is probably not for you, but if you like a slightly more offbeat slow and tense film, you may like it.
