About the Movie
Somewhere deep within Arizona’s Superstition Mountains lies the most famous lost gold mine in the world—the Lost Dutchman Mine. Its estimated worth is around 200 million dollars. Since the turn of the twentieth century, thousands of people have scoured the mountains in search of it, hundreds have lost their lives in the process, but not one has returned with an ounce of gold. Legend has it the mine is cursed. In March of 2011, three Los Angeles filmmakers set out to find the mine and document their entire search. They never made it out of the Superstitions. Eight months later, their camera and cell phones were recovered along the western edge of LaBarge Canyon. No sign of the filmmakers themselves has been found to date. Dark Mountain is the chilling reconstruction from their footage of what are believed to be their last days. Inspired by actual events.
Best Found Footage Film in Years
I'm always apprehensive when a new found footage film comes out as so many have tried to emulate The Blair Witch Project. This film is not that, it truly stands as one of the best found footage films, hell, best horror film I've seen in years. The story is sharp and the soundtrack really adds to the tension of the film. If you're looking for something to scare you then look no further.
In the space where found footage films exists, this is one that actually draws from a local legend and a genuinely creepy and isolating location to drum up scares.
This movie is surprisingly suspenseful, and creepy!
