Another week, another straight-to-DVD horror flick is given a full cinematic release in the UAE. Beneath the Darkness possesses a clanker of a plot about a group of high school teens who know who murdered their friend, but struggle to expose the killer to the elders in their small-town Texas home. Their burden lies in uncovering a murderous monster masquerading as a local hero; ours is pulling off this film’s assumed cloak of artistic integrity to reveal an almighty dud.
