Okay young directors, repeat after me: Style can only get me so far. Style can only get me so far. Style can only get me so far. Okay, now that you’ve said it, put it into action and stop applying your talents to garbage scripts.

In an interesting but ultimately worthless spin on Training Day, young and tough looking cop John Dark gets a new partner in the form of the eventually out-of-control Mort Shade. After inexplicably being infected by a parasite in a gigantic freezer, Shade begins to kill local criminals with the help of a CGI snake that springs from his palm. It’s not long before Dark begins to realize that Shade is the one brutally killing these people who have been able to beat the system in the past. Eventually, as boredom begins to truly set in on the audience’s part, Dark has to stop Shade before true innocents begin to die.

Cold & Dark looked to have potential for success. It’s a British horror film that tries its hand at being different. Ultimately, the whole experiment fails miserably. Aside from the excellent scenes of gore, Cold & Dark has nothing going for it. Even Kevin Howarth, who was so great in The Last Horror Movie, comes off as bland.

What’s scary is that director Andrew Goth is directing the upcoming Wretched, which stars Chow Yun Fat as a zombie bounty hunter. I really hope he doesn’t screw that one up.

DVD: Barebones.
