Dark Touch is an intense and slow burn after the initial scenes that very smoothly transitions into a terrifying revenge tale, even if that revenge is on whomever happens to be about. Niamh is a sympathetic evil character, which makes the viewer torn in the end as to whether they believe her actions are justified by her experiences or if she’s gone to far. The beauty of this is that it makes one feel guilty for feeling happy she obtained some respite in the end, even if it was only temporary. The ending is quite open ended and will likely leave some people feeling unsatisfied without the type of closure they would prefer, but it actually adds strength to the movie as a tied off ending would weaken it. Slow paced until it isn’t, and a drive to an even darker place than where we start make for a good movie that will keep the viewer tense, often expecting things to happen that may or may not. Definitely one of the better evil child movies I’ve seen in quite some time. – 3.8/5 (genre)
